Rightly recognized by the British Raj as their capital of Bombay Province, Mahableshwar continues to top the charts by the honey-mooners and vacationers looking out for magnetically green panorama with soothing breezes. This hill station lies in Maharashtra at an altitude of 1438 meters and possesses one of the few evergreen forests in India. Mahabaleshwar’s landscape is glistening with amazing water bodies.
Krishna River which flows through Maharashtra, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh, originates from Mahableshwar. The source of Krishna River has an ancient temple of Lord Shiva. The temple is of great importance for the Hindus. Another famed tourist destination of Mahableshwar is Venna Lake. The lake has colorful boats and is lined with greenery. Besides boating, you can also opt for horse ride or shopping in the city market at a distance of about 2 km. Though every angle of the landscape is enchanting but there are few points known for offering the best views; three monkey point, Needle Hole Point (Elephant Point) and Wilson Point are a few examples.
