Good views, worth the visit while doing your rounds of other places. The distant view visibility depends on the season you visit. Nothing very exciting though.

Nice locale and easy to reach. The good part is that one can see the beautiful valley and the fort from the view point. One needs to walk a bit from the parking to get there hence be selective.

Offers good view of the valley. But a bit tiresome to walk through especially for older folks. Should visit when in Mahabaleshwar.

Nice point with amazing view of various mountains getting merged and and getting into one. This point seems to be almost 100+ years old. One should must visit during their trip to Mahabaleshwar.

It is a good view point where you can see valleys and lush greenery around you. As I went in November the place was little dried up but a good place for photography You can also see Pratapgarh Fort from the telescope there.

There are many points which you might find similar to the elphistone point so you can avoid visiting at this place. It's not bad but I personally find it similar to the other points that are there in Mahabaleshwar.
