The road to Arthur's seat is very very bad. Not worth the drive if u have your own vehicle. Better than that is Harrison's point any day, towards Wai after you cross Panchgani.

Bit of tragic history associated with this point...Very good place to enjoy the beauty of hills...Would have to cover a lot of downhill steps and slope to reach there. The entire route contains multiple points...so overall a good experience..

Need to go down approx 200 steps and then you reach this view point. Monkeys at certain places so be careful don't carry any eatables as they snatch it.

There are 10 points to be visited. It takes almost 2 hrs and though we were Senior citizens yet we found it easy to climb. The eatery stalls all over, help you release your tiredness. Each spot has a history of its own

This is one of the best points Mahabaleshwar has. the view of Sahyadri hills from this point is breathtaking. this is a must visit spot, good if you go there after 4 pm up to 6 pm. This is really beautiful.
