A point with unmatched peace and quiet and surreal natural beauty is what Elphinstone’s point is all about. With the lush greenery and mind blowing nature to marvel at, the rock formations here are set in a way that appears to be like an elephant’s trunk.

The place gets its name from the times of the British Raj, after the Governor of Bombay, Sir Mount Elphinstone. It is believed to have been founded by Dr. Murray in 1930 and has an old mansion in its vicinity. The mansion now lies in ruins and local authorities are planning to demolish to erect a picnic shed in its place for tourists. The Elphinstone Point offers a panoramic view of the Pratapgarh Fort, with the Koyna Valley to one side and the Savitri Valley to the other.
