amazing view and the place is truly unique and the veiw too is. the only minus poin is the view place which at times gets too over crowded and also to reach the place may not be that easy for the aged people

This is a nice place to visit to see the views but be warned on a very hot day walking down the steps and back can be hard as it is very tiring in the heat

This is another point with great views on the way to Arthur Seat Point. Valley and the fort which is visible from here. This is named after a former Governor of Bombay. Can visit.

Loads of monkeys present so have to be a little careful. The point offers great spectacular views of the valley.

This is another point with great views, especially of the Koyna Valley and the fort which is visible from here, but make sure it’s not on a cloudy day. This is named after a former Governor of Bombay.

A decent sight seeing point that has for its backdrop the mountain ranges or peaks of the Sahyadris.Good for photo ops.Not a very strenuous activity.
