Travel Mahabaleswar India


One of the most beautiful hill stations in India is Mahabaleshwar, located in the sloppy mountain ranges of the western ghats of Maharashtra. This hill station offers a clean, calm and refreshing environment,ideal for vacations.The area has strong historical connections with Shivaji, the heroic Maratha warrior king.

Mahabaleshwar was discovered by the Britishers, who were always in search of places that provided them relief from the heat of the plains. Thus, the city still retains some of the old world charm, making it an perfect holiday destination.

Mahabaleshwar is a popular holiday spot in India. It is one of the most popular honeymoon spots in Maharashtra. Reason why most of the newly married couples come here to travelrainbow_mahabaleswar_locationsspend their time amidst these natural beauties.Today the hill station serves as a holiday resort and also a famous honeymoon spot.The hill station is very famous due to its beautiful lakes, hills and waterfalls.In addition to its scenic beauty the hill station is also popular for its temples, amazing viewpoints and places of historical significance.

Travel Mahabaleswar and One thing I find unusual about this place is that irrespective of number of people who go there, the peace and calmness is never disturbed.

Another thing you just cant miss here is strawberry and ice cream, its just out of this world.My suggesttravelrainbow_mahabaleswar_strawberryicecreamion to all the tourist is to keep the place clean every place you visit.

Venna Lake : It is the first and major attraction within Mahabaleshwar. one can spend the whole day at this lake and enjoy boating.

Mount Malcolm : Mount Malcolm used to be the most famous building in the olden days. It was built in 1829 with superb architectural skills. Unfortunately, today it has lost a lot of its old charm.

Catholic Church : A visit to the old Roman Catholic Holy cross church is worth a detour. Although the church is practically falling apart, its stained-glass windows are still a sight to behold.

Panchgani : Tucked away in Satara district, just 19 kms east of Mahabaleshwar, Panchgani is also amongst the most frequented hill resorts in India. The name is derived from the fact that it is located at the centre of five hills ("Panch" means five, "Gani" means hills). The place is well known for trekking and other adventure activities.travelrainbow_hotels-mahabaleshwar
