Nice break

As the name suggests, the viewpoint was entered as a folly as a break from the busy traffic while going out of Panchgani. And interestingly we got a quick view of the sunset, some nice views of the plains around & and enjoyed ATV and sobbing (getting rolled inside a huge ball). A good break to cheer us up after a rather horrible experience of traffic snarls and lunch.

Nice Table Land with a good valley view

Harrison's Folly is very near to Panchgani & is one of the highly recommended sightseeing spots. From the main road, you need to drive along on a dirt road for about 1. 5 kms to reach the table top, which is called Harrison's Folly. You get a nice view of the Krishna Valley from all three sides. Since it is a flat table land so high up, people jump up in the air & click pictures which give the impression that you are floating way up in the air & you will see several tourists doing this. There are also local photographers who do this for you & give you instant prints from their cameras at a small cost. There are a few vendors selling light snacks & also a Camel that offers rides to the children, so its a fun place to spend some time with the family. A place you must visit if you have not been there yet.
