Elephant's Head Point, Mahabaleshwar

(4.1/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
Walk or take a pony ride to Elephant's Head Point, a popular vantage point offering incredible views of the surrounding landscape. A relatively short and easy walk through dense tree cover leads you to the rock formation and viewpoint, which takes its name from its resemblance to the head and trunk of an elephant. Enjoy this peaceful spot while taking in panoramic vistas of the Sahyadri mountain range. Keep an eye out for cheeky monkeys, who might try to pinch your belongings. Be prepared for changeable weather, especially during the monsoon season. Plan your Elephant's Head Point visit and explore what else you can see and do in Mahabaleshwar using our Mahabaleshwar trip itinerary planner.

  • Good place for visit. There are some shooting points visible from there. Nice views of Lake and dam. May be good views after monsoon.  more »
  • So named because the Rock on the mountain-top is naturally cut to resemble the head of an elephant - it offers good and sweeping views of the mountain range.  more »
