  • This peak offers beautiful view of Lake Venna and Krishna Valley. The setting of the sun at that place was most Fabulous 
  • Once reaching to the top this point provides a breathtaking view of the valley. I am sure people with fear of height will find it difficult to visit. Nothing much to do apart from this. 
  • Great spot for close encounter with nature and a favorite spot for shutterbugs. View of the valley is breathtaking.

  • Connaught Peak is the second highest elevation in Mahabaleshwar after the Wilson Plateau. To get here you have to take a small road through the forest uptil a small clearing where vehicles can be parked. Now take a 'staircase through the forest' - literally, to climb to the peak. This mini trek itself is a worthwhile experience and if you are lucky as we have been, you will see Giant Squirrels in the dense forest trees. The peak is a small plateau with 360 degree views of whatever falls within line of sight. On a clear day, almost upto the Arabian Sea. On a misty day, perhaps 2 feet! In September and October, the clearing on top is carpeted with happy yellow daisies. Sunrise and sunset are best times for spectacular views but anytime is worth it for a quick visit.
