The Connaught peak point is a nice off beat place to visit when in Mahabaleshwar. It's situated adjacent to the Kates view point and well worth the effort of travelling from the main town area. It's better known a the second highest peak of the region

Connaught peak is the second highest mountain peak in Mahabaleshwar hills after Wilson Point. This is located close to Kates View Point and Needle Hole. Breathing fresh mountain air in the rains seemed wonderful here

There are 5 points at kates view and this peak is the one behind elephant head also known as needle hole. The peak is huge and very nice to see.

This is a view point like many others in this region and it is difficult to rate these attractions. The views from most points are more or less the same. This one like the others offers pleasant views of the valley.
