This view point gave me a decent view of the valley and mountains. I visited around noon and there was a thick haze and I could not take good pictures. Suggest you go early to beat the crowds and also the haze.

This place has an excellent view. It's named after some British lady whose story I've forgotten. Mahabaleshwar has some excellent landscapes and this is truly one of them.

Wow! what a view. I just loved the view of the mountains in the middle of the lake. Lovely in rainy seasons especially in July.
