about elphinstone point

Among one of Mahabaleshwar's highest points, the beautiful Elphinstone Point is another place for some unmatched peace and quiet, in the company of surreal beauty. Enjoy the best views that Mahabaleshwar has on offer, while letting your senses be healed with the natural, lush greenery here.

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 Pratapgad Fort, with the Koyna Valley to one side and the Savitri Valley to the other.
