Magnificent Cascades, Rivers and Peaks are going to make you fall in love with this Hill Station in the Western Ghats, Just 280 Kms. South of Mumbai. This is a go to place to enjoy the weather, some lip smacking cuisine and the Strawberries that Mother Nature has blessed this land with.
Apart from the many Treks and View points that Mahabaleshwar has to offer, I happened to stumble upon Two Jewels here which are a Must Visit, Must Stay Places here and they are Total Value for Money.(more about it later in the article)
The best Time to visit Mahabaleshwar would be During the Summers or the Winters (super cold). Though this is going to be Super Peak season for the region which will mean that you have steep accommodation prices! So plan in advance. If not, I would also Recommend going here during the Off peak Season, which will ensure that the markets and sightseeing spots aren't crowded at all, Accommodation options are easily available and easy on the Pocket. The weather is awesome throughout the year so that's not something that's going to be a dampener.
