About Mahabaleshwar
Mahabaleshwar is both a city and a municipal council in the Satara district in the state of
Maharashtra. It is located in the Western Ghats range of India, which spreads from north to
south along the Deccan Plateau. The hill station is at an elevation of 1,353 metres above sea
Page 1/14
Mahabaleshwar lies 285 km south-west of Mumbai and is bound by valleys on all sides. It is a
plateau measuring an area of 150 square kilometres.
Mahabaleshwar constitutes three villages – Malcolm Peth, Old �Kshetra’ Mahabaleshwar and
some part of the Shindola village. The river Krishna originates from the mouth of the legendary
statue of a cow in the temple of Mahadev situated in Old Mahabaleshwar and flows across
Maharashtra, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. Four other rivers also flow from the mouth of the
cow, before they merge into the Krishna; these are Koyana, Venna (Veni), Savitri and Gayatri.
The destination was ruled by various dynasties including the Mauryas, Chalukyas,
Rashtrakutas, Adil Shahi, Shilahar, Marathas, Peshwas and Satavahanas. The history of
Mahabaleshwar dates back to 1215, when king Singhan of Deogiri visited Old Mahabaleshwar.
A temple and a water tank were constructed by him at the source of the Krishna. This area was
invaded by a Brahmin dynasty in 1350.
In the 16th century, the Maratha family of Chandarao ruled over the city. Later, in the 17th
century, Jaoli and Mahabaleshwar were taken over by Shivaji Maharaj, who constructed the
Pratapgad Fort in 1656. The city also witnessed the imprints of the British, who included the
destination in the territory of the Raja of Satara in 1819.
Getting around Mahabaleshwar is not a problem for tourists. Travellers can hire a taxi or board
a bus to explore the city and its attractions. Mahabaleshwar is famous for strawberries and
mulberries. Tourists can enjoy 'strawberries with cream' from January to February and
'mulberries with cream' from April to May. Also, strawberry milkshake and vada pav made here
is a must-try for tourists. The city also produces fresh jams and marmalades, which can be
bought. Tourists can also buy fresh honey from the various bee farms in the city.
The moderate climate of Mahabaleshwar makes it destination tourists can visit any time of the

"One of the most populer hill station, easy to reach and nice to stay with all facilities in terms of
good to luxerious stay & variety of food veg, non-veg & jain. Most popular for strawbery gardens
& Ancient fort call Pratap Garh.
Minimum 3 days visit require to enjoy this hill station at fullest.
Good morning with cooku songfs if your choose to stay in little out skirt.
Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Hill top station with lots of greenaries, strawbery gardens,
Ancient forts [pratap garh] and boat tour in evening at veena lake that make perfect holiday at
very cheap cost for maharashtra people. All variety of foods available depends where you
prefer to stay. Market becomes very live every evening with all variety of gifts & shopping. In
house amusement in market area for kids [incl elder kids] for entertaintment. Even hugh
amusement park are now available for full day entertaintment.
Activities & things to do: - Pick best of strawberies while to your return journey. You can choose
to order your quantity during your visit to strawberies garden in advance and they will ensure
fresh strawbery delivered to your hotel on the day of your departure, sounds gr8, isn't it?
- Boat riding in venna lake [or prepferably vaigaon] is must have attraction
- Hill point visits like echo points, monkey point is alos prefered places to visit though it's quite
similar to matheran, if you have already been there. Still you with family can spend some quality
time [but not more than 2-3 hrs]
- best part is to have complete rest with family and breath in air with lots of oxygen which is not
available in urban cities.
Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: First time travelers, it is good you take
public/private bus trnasportation as it is not so safe to drive, not bcoz of road conditions but due
to very deep curves which going up to top of the mountain called Mahabaleshwar, to avoid
invite unfortunate accident.
Visitors can enter wither from pune or pane side. it is ~150 KMs from mumbai. it's better to take
train to pune or atleat till Mumbai for out station visitors then rest can be travelled through road.
Do propoer planning before starting sight seings. There is only 2 directions you have to plan 1)
Towards Pratap Garh 2) Panchgini. Even for Pratap Garh, public bus is avaialbe from bus
depot [which in the centre of market]. Visiting Pratap Garh is half day tour, but exauhstive so
better take rest during remaining day. Atmost visit market in evening b/w 6-9 PM. thera lots of
attraction on the way to Panchgini such as Strawbery Gardens, Amusement Park, Lord Shiva
Temple, Venna Lake and most popular Mapro & Mala factory. Againg this is half day tour so
have good rest during other half.
Do proper bargain before hiring cabs [which is the only option] for sight seings to avoid
unpleasent arguments at the end of the day.
Mostly full day cab [9AM to 6PM] will charge Rs 1500 which has capacity to accommodate 2
families." - Suresh Satasia, Mumbai, May 30, 2012
Just cant get enough...!!!
"Mahabaleshwar has been a favorite with the Pune and Mumbai crowds for quite sometime
now. But even then, it still hasnt lost its charm because there is just so much to see and do.
Page 3/14
Laid back, frantic adventures, long walks, boat rides, great food, markets, resorts, you just
name it and you have it. And the weather is what keeps pulling people all year round. And did I
miss the Strawberries....well that everyone knows for sure...!!!!
Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Growing as a tourist hot-spot for all these years, almost all
cuisines are avaliable in the hills now. The markets are filled with local things to Dominoz to
fruits. Just take your pic and hog on.
The favorites still remain the 1.Mapro Garden, with its fresh Pizzas and Sandwiches.
2.Woodland with the valley-view sitting area. 3.Bageecha for the to-die-for Strawberry Cream
4.The Strawberry Farms.
For sight seeing, you have plenty of spots which lead to the valley. Monkey point, Arthurs seat,
Suicide point, Sunset point, etc. You just take a road and go ahead and it woould end in some
point in the valley. Then you have the waterfalls too, which would be almost after every 200mts
if you go in the Monsoons.
The place most people miss out on is the Mahabaleshwar Temple, after which the region is
named. Tucked away in a far end, it surely deserves a visit.
Activities & things to do: You can eat, shop, play, walk, trek and even explore the hills
depending on the time you have. Just make sure you include food between your site seeings
and sports coz that really is the true essence of the place. You have numerous play parks too
for dirt bike rides, fun rides, paint ball, go carting etc to keep yourself entertained all day long. A
late evening boat ride and a horse ride would be a perfect end to a long day.
For the more adventurous there are paragliding trips too right near the start and from table top.
Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: It is about 130kms from Pune and the road is a
delight with the sights. NH7 is a dream ride and plenty of street side food joints to keep you full
for the journey.
Driving in the ghats is not advisable in the dark so make sure you start early and head back
right after sunset." - Shagun Segan, Nagpur, Apr 26, 2011
Back after 28 years
"Located approximately 300 km from Mumbai; hill station at a high altitude 2 hours drive from
Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Do stop at Akbarally's Panchgani and savour the delicious
Parathas just 20 km before Mahableswar. Do not miss out on Santosa on the Pune expressway
while coming to Mumbai and while going from Mumbai you could probably stop at either
MacDonalds or Food Court depending on your choice. Also enjoy the strawberry and cream
and Makai rotis at Mahableshwar.
Activities & things to do: If you are a sports buff do go to PJ hindu Gymkhana which has two
tennis courts; table tennis and billiards. Apart from the Lake you can go to the race course and
shop in the market.
Page 4/14
Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Take the Mumbai-Pune expressway. You colud
also travel by Volvo or Mercedes Benz; daily early morning or late night buses." - Rasesh
Mehta, Mumbai, Mar 20, 2011
"The best time to visit Mahabaleshwar is during Nov-Jan when you can enjoy maximum of the
nature, and give a treat to your eyes. well the city is developing with quite a lot of entertainment
in the evening in the market place, and lots to buy. the place is very scenic, the cabs
overcharge you so its better if you have your own car to travel around. the roads are quite
pleasant to drive and its a wonderful drive on the Panchgani road. avoid frequent visits to the
crowded market as it takes away the vacation mood.
Food, sight-seeing and shopping: The best places to eat in Mahabaleshwar are quite few but
still follow my advice and you will not be disappointed , for lunch you may visit this dhaba on the
way to Pratapgarh which is called as saraswati, in the market there are very few joints to eat but
if you are looking for a small snack there is nescafe shop besides a bakery which makes
excellent sandwiches. also if you are looking for a wonderful dinner you may go to brightaland
hotel for dinner its very pleasant at this point of time. for sight-seeing go to pratapgarh, all the
points like monkey point, valleys and all as the nature is at its best here and that will take you
away from the rush and make you feel on the heaven truly. If you are a shopping freak do the
fruties, chocolates ( falero/mala the best) and other eatables shopping during afternoons, and
spare the evenings for foot-wears and other household stuff. one of the best places
Activities & things to do: Guys something very interesting that i saw on the way back from
Panchgani to Mahabaleshwar was a colour gun fight its a very unique game, you form teams
and are handed over with colour guns to all individual and can play this game in the fields
besides. Trust me its wonderful game for youngsters and very much funfilled. Visit Venna lake
for boating, and also you could go to tapola for boating as they say it is truly the Kashmir of
Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: It is better if you book through a traveller like
holidayiq, as they will book everything for you the a/c mercedes coach, a hotel to stay 'as per
your budget', they also organise a sight -seeing as per your stay days. this way you dont waste
time to look around for hotels or cars to travel or places to visit, hence i would reccomend if you
are going with your spouse you better book through holidayiq you will get the best. if you want to
travel by your own car try and reach by 8:30 or 9:00 in the morning as the hotels get empty by
this time and it will be easy for you to check in directly instead of waiting for their previous guest
to check will also be a great help if you do not have any booking in any of the hotel as at
this time you can hunt for the best hotel that you want stay in at the best rates. and dear friends
it is in your interest to book the hotel through reliable tourist agent than booking on your own as
the pictures on the net of the hotel could be mis-guiding, hence i say book through holidayiq." Vikas Vichare, Mumbai, Jan 16, 2011
Heaven on Earth
Page 5/14
"Overall, it is definitely unforgettable experience to hang out with your loved one in such a
beautiful heaven. Though Mahableshwar can be fully covered within 2 days, but it can be more
enjoyed with 1-2 extra days, where you will not cover any points and just take fantastic round of
Mahableshwar without any stress of your office/home and bring back those classic memories.
Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Like all tourist places, local sightseeing tours are organized
by tourist taxis (either indica or maruti van) and guides. But good thing is that the rate for all
tours are fixed and which has to be obeyed by all taxis, though the rates are quite high and
displayed at main taxi stand. There are total six different local sightseeing tours
1) Mahabaleshwar – 1: Duration 2.5 Hours, Rs. 355
2) Mahabaleshwar – 2: Duration 2.5 Hours, Rs. 355
3) Panchgani Darshan: Duration 2.5 hours, Rs. 425 (additional 200 Rs and 1 hour for
4) Pratapgarh Darshan: Duration 3 hours, Rs. 560
5) Mini Kashmir (Tapola): Duration 3 hours, Rs. 580
6) Panchgani and Wai Darshan-2: Duration 4 hours, Rs. 610
Though you can find 8-10 points under each tour, the actual point is located in very near area.
(Like Arthur Seat, Window Point, Echo point, hunter point, are within 100 mtr area.) There is
heavy bargaining on tour. We paid total 1200 Rs for first 3 tours. Most of the tours are not
covering Sherbaug in their list, but I found it the most obvious reason to go back to
Mahableshwar once again. For budget tourists, MSRTC organized tour charge 70 Rs per
person and cover all the points in Mahabaleshwar (not Panchgani) Following points are worth to
1) Arthur Seat (during Mahabaleshwar-1): Spectacular view of Koyna valley.
2) Lodwick point and Elephant head (during Mahabaleshwar-2): both the points are 100 mtr
apart, not covered during MSRTC tour.
3) Ket’s point (during Mahabaleshwar-1): Breathtaking view of Krishna valley, near by points are
Echo point and needles’ hole
4) Table land (during Panchgani Darshan): located in Panchgani.
5) Sherbaug (during Panchgani Darshan): One of the most beautiful place. Botanical garden
filled with lots of flora of different varieties in acres of land . Must visit for all nature lovers.
Though they claim that it will take around one hour to fully cover Sherbaug, but acoording to
me, 3-4 hours are also less. Definitely entrance fee of 100 Rs is worth to pay. Its really almost
impossible to describe in words what the place is and what effect it has on you.
6) Veena lake: Most happening place of Mahabaleshwar, boating in paddle boat or rowing boat
can be done in one of the most beautiful point at Mahabaleshwar for 100-150 Rs for 30 minutes
per boat.
Due to time constrain and poor review of Tapola and Prtapgarh fort, we did not visit those two
Activities & things to do: Other activities include marketing at main market, where lot of
bargaining is possible. Important attractions are wooden articles, caps, shoes apart from other.

How can one forget fruit jams, jelly, crushes, for which Mahableshwar is famous since long.
Mahabaleshwar trip cannot be completed without taste of fresh strawberry with cream. One can
also purchase fresh strawberry from gardens, but if you are buying the same from market, do
not forget to bargain.
Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: After reaching Pune station by train, in the
morning we took MSRTC bus from Swargate for Mahabaleshwar. (There is no train going to
Mahableshwar directly) MSRTC bus starts in the morning around 6.00 a.m with quite good
frequency. But it is better to get reservation to get seat for 3 hour run. (Bus ticket: 90 Rs per
For almost all hotels at Mahableshwar, Check in time is 9.30 a.m. and check out time is 8.00
a.m. so one has to plan their tour accordingly. The atmosphere at Mahableshwar is pleasant
and full of greenery; definitely it is heaven for someone, coming from concrete jungle.
On the last day, we checked out the hotel in the morning 8.00 a.m. and moved to visit few
sightseeing points and catched the MSRTC bus in the afternoon 2.00 pm towards Mumbai. It
takes 180 Rs per seat in MSRTC bus and 7 hours to reach Mumbai central. You can also opt
for private luxury bus (which also start at 2.00 pm) which takes 400 Rs in so called Volvo A/C
bus, but before booking, please confirm whether they are reaching to Mumbai directly (in 7
hours) or via Pune (in 9 hours)" - Darshan Shah, Baroda, Jan 19, 2008
