Located in India’s forested Western Ghats range, south of Mumbai. It features several elevated viewing points, such as Arthur’s Seat. West of here is centuries-old Pratapgad Fort, perched atop a mountain spur. East Lingmala Waterfall tumbles off a sheer cliff. Colorful boats dot Venna Lake, while 5 rivers meet at Panch Ganga temple to the north.
From 1980’s to 2005, Mahabaleshwar was the ultimate holiday destination for most of the people in Maharashtra until the rise of Goa & Lonavala in the tourism industry. But it’s still the same old beautiful mahabaleshwar where you can have lots of fresh strawberries straight from the farm, delightful & fresh chikkis of different flavors, original mapro syrup and some great resorts to have a great and peaceful weekend at the top of the beautiful hill station.
