The pleasant weather of Mahabaleshwar is a great excuse to visit the town when you are tired of the heat of the city. It is cool all year round, and the monsoons are very romantic too.

Elephant’s Head Point is also one of my most visited spots by tourists in Mahabaleshwar.

It may also be that Elephant’s Point derived its name from the former Governor of Bombay, Sir Mount Elphinstone. The site is believed to have been discovered by Dr. Murray in the year 1930. He used to live in a mansion nearby. Today the mansion is in ruins and has been converted into a picnic shed by local authorities.
