Lush Scenery & Strawberry
Mahabaleshwar counts among the most popular weekend getaways from nearby cities like Pune and Mumbai. There are many things to do for vacationers in this quaint little hill station – from soaking in the picturesque vistas at sightseeing points like Arthur’s Seat and Mumbai Point to boating on Venna Lake. Adventure seekers can plan a trekking trip to waterfalls like Lingmala and Dhobi or the famous Pratapgarh Fort. Other historical places like Mahabaleshwar and Krishnabai temples are also a must-visit. The list of places to visit in Mahabaleshwar would be incomplete without Mapro Garden, ideal for indulging in delicious meals and shopping for jams, syrups and other processed fruit items.
For the freshest strawberries, raspberries and gooseberries, head to the Town Bazaar area. There is an array of souvenirs available here including trinkets, leather goods, walking sticks, handicrafts and more. After the shopping spree, binge to your heart’s content at the restaurants in Mahabaleshwar like The Grapevine, Olive Garden, Farmhouse Bistro and Keys Café. The town’s nightlife is also worth exploring with lively pubs and bars like Unlock, Angaare, Plunge Bar and The Electrique Mist.
Plan an excursion from Mahabaleshwar to offbeat tourist places like Kaas Plateau and Tapola.
