  • As you drive on the ghat section to Panchgani this is probably the first point on your right just a few kilometres before the sleeping town of Panchgani. Harrison's Folly is a sort of flat highland (p...  more »

  • As the name suggests, the viewpoint was entered as a folly as a break from the busy traffic while going out of Panchgani. And interestingly we got a quick view of the sunset, some nice views of the pl...  more »

  • Located at the beginning of the panchgani & on weekends lot of paragliding activity takes place here even on the weekdays also. Flat surface attract the various two Wheeler & four Wheeler group riders here to have group meet & activities here. Go cart is also available here. Refreshments stalls & washroom both are located here. Don't forget to be here while visiting via your own or hired vehicles as mesmerizing panoramic view would definitely great spot for having memorable pics. It's a private property so might charge few bucks for paragliding & heavy vehicles but 2 wheelers & car's entry is free. Happy journey
  • While exiting Panchgani, we made a quick photo stop here. There was an arbitrary entrance fee. But the view made up for it. You can take your vehicle right till the edge. You can spend time here clicking, walking or generally soaking in the Sun, but do note- the place can get incredibly crowded.
  • This place is famous for Paragliding and most of the tourists are misguided to have paragliding open for everybody but trust me when we went there with the same expectation we found that paragliding is now closed and people flying out there are the ones with their personal kit. Hope this helps many tourists out there to save their cab charges and lower their expectations on paragliding. Apart from this there is a small grassland area with a deep valley to the extreme end. If not for paragliding one can go and visit these. But not preferable.
  • This point is now a private property. And there is a entry ticket. It has got a good plateau, but now they have started putting up shops over there. So that may affect the beautiful surrounding that is available naturally.
  • Nice lush open space. Feel the strong breeze gushing across the valley. Kids can spend time driving small all terrain bikes
