Must watch place in Mahabaleshwar

Arthur Seat view is the best view of the mountains in Mahabaleshwar. It is said that Sir Arthur's family got drowned in the Savitri river and he used to sit and read books from that spot seeing the river.

Good place to visit

Point is very nice and view is awesome. One can enjoy photography here. Its like a suicide point with very deep valley. If you through light objects they will float upwards. One can see Savitry Valley deep downwards. Visitors can spend 10-20 mins at this place and click nature.

Amazing Spot

For the best & awesome views, visit this place. It has one of the best views of Mountain & Sea. Looks beautiful from this place. Don't miss it during your visit. Though there's hard climbing but good view at the end, take water bottles with you when you climb if thirsty. There are chairs on the way to sit if you are tired. There are steep steps too.
