  • Very very good experience! It was cleaner than I imagined. Good hike, but manageable for people with knee problem. My mother had a replaced knee and she was able to hike up all the way to the top. Definitely visit the handy craft store. It has good collection of stuffs with reasonable price.
  • A good road-trip if you're in Mahabaleshwar. Must visit in morning time as it gets hot out there. Peaceful, not too crowded, holds it's place in history, with some great view of the surrounding mountains.
