This Sunrise point is bestest among all.. You'll get to see proper Sunrise if you visit on time early morning.
A must visit destination if you are in Mahabaleshwar. Better to get there by 6:00am to see the sunrise in full glory. Can get a couple of good shots here.
There are 2 routes to reach here. Take the first turn left after Keys Resort of you are coming by car from Mahabaleshwar. You can take the other route as well but it's a bit steep. The place is good and the view is nice. However I would recommend viewing Sunrise from Panchghani.
Visited this place at morning 7 AM to see sunrise and I was glad to see the sunrise at exactly 7:02 AM as stated by Google. There were lot of people visiting the place for the same purpose. I loved the place. Must visit in morning.
