Mahabaleshwar: Day 2: In and around, Arthur seat et al: Part 3 of 4

Technically there is a lot to see at this one place - Arthur Seat, Hunter point, Echo point, Malcolm point, Tiger springs, Window point....phew - looks like a lot but is actually a series of view points along a single walkway.

Warning to couch potatoes: its quite a walk downhill and back up, but my 4 year old did it with a little bit of carrying
The best part of this is that it is filled with vedors who sell goodies from ice lollies to vada pav to salads.

Since its only an hour long drive to this place, you can actually come back and go for shopping in Mahabaleshwar or go to the lake and enjoy the horse rides and various other rides for kids.

Also, there are 2 places called sunset point and sunrise point where one can get a panoramic view of the sun as it comes up or down the western ghats. (The sunset point is a beautiful walking distance from MTDC if you want to plan it that way!)
