4.4/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web
Enjoy the view from Arthur's Seat, a popular vantage point known locally as "Queen of the Points." The spot commemorates a British officer who, after losing his family in a tragic ferry accident, used to sit there and gaze upon the river for hours. Climb up from the parking lot to the point, situated at an elevation of 1,470 m (4,822 ft), and observe the picturesque scenery of mountain ranges and deep river valleys.

  • It's Arthur's seating place, he used to seat here in the memory of his son n wife which flew in the Savitri river. The valley visible is of Savitri river. View better experienced in the sunny days. Bt rainy season is also good to visit.
  • One of the best views you would find at mahabaleshwar. Best if you happen to visit it in the morning when its not crowded. Although the place has more or less become a tourist spot now with people leaving a lot of junk behind which's a sad sight almost every where you go!
  • Best and lively point in Mahabaleshwar. Beautiful view of Savitri river and valley from the edge of the mountain. One of the best point to click selfie. Had fun of throwing cold drink bottle's caps. When thrown like a disk, in the valley, it flies to super height.
  • The route is so awesome... Nice view of the hills from the top.... Can get sweet strawberries... Very cold place esp. In the morning n post evening...
  • Nice spot, Great view on a clear day. Makes for some good photographs. It is very crowded though. Is quite a walk to reach the spot.
