We reached Mahabaleshwar early in morning at 5:30 am. We had booked our hotel in Mahabaleshwar market as it was easier to walk around and visit places. When you are in Mahabaleshwar Main market, you get variety of food and shopping options and you can even book a local cab.
We reached our hotel in just 10 mins i.e. at 5:40 am but couldn't check in as the timing for that was 9:30 am so we decided to keep our bags behind the counter at the hotel and set off to the morning trek towards Wilson point.
It was a 45 minutes trek but it was easy as the local government body had prepared a good path. I even saw many locals going for a morning walk. The Wilson point was one of the beautiful point with serene atmosphere. Have a chai there from a local vendor while looking at the sun rise but don't forget to take back the paper cup back to the hotel to throw in a dustbin.
Then we trekked back to the market and had steaming hot Poha from a local vendor. We went back to the hotel and slept away our tiredness.
We spent the rest of the day exploring the local market and eating the local food, especially the cult favourite - Strawberry cream.
We had dinner at The Grapevine Restaurant Mahabaleshwar where we tried authentic Parsi food and Strawberry wine.
