Elephant's Head Point, Mahabaleshwar

(4.2/5 based on 420+ 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.

  • Need to walk around 1KM to reach this point. Chilling place. Main attraction: - Elephants head view - Horse ride 
  • Nice place but beware of the monkeys. It has a pleasant view soothing to the eyes. Also you can interact with other tourists 
  • This place is also a very good point in Mahabaleshwar... This place is having a very good view of hills... U will find a hill like elephant's head ..
