  • Loved the strawberries at Muskaan's Farm. Right by the side of the ancient Shiva Temple. And the warmth of Sureyya and her family at the farm.

  • A lovely visit. And our stay in Fountain Hotel accentuated the entire trip. Watch out : traffic delays due to poorly managed toll collection in Panchgani and Mahabaleshwar - this caused serpentine...

  • Needle Point was very much isolated during lockdown and was actually fun to visit as I've never seen this place so vacant. Overall a good place as it gives view of mountains, elephant head, needle & waterfall. Close to nature is always fulfilling.
  • Amazing place to visit. We had visited Mahabaleshwar sometime in December- wow, what a climate to enjoy! Everything was so perfect - great scenery, fantastic photos, beautiful lake, clean strawberry farms and after all great food to enjoy. Once you checked into hotel, it’s highly recommend not to take your car / vehicles to the main picnic points as most of the places are very crowded and you will waste lot of time searching for parking! The best choice is to hire taxi and roam around - usually they charge for 4 persons full day @ 1,500/- which is quite decent. Taxi drivers are also really helpful and promptly guide you where to spend time and best locations. In the main market, there are lots of standard / high quality hotels and if you haven’t booked in advance, room tariff can be negotiated and very competitive. Just try Vienna lake, Gocart, Strawberry ice cream, and lot of blissful cool climate. We found only parking and is an issue but otherwise, overall a very good experience well spent time with family.
