For many in the cities of Mumbai and Pune, Lonavala is the first hill station that they visit. The place lies less than 100 km from either city and is well-connected thanks to the Expressway between them. Every weekend, you can find hundreds of visitors in Lonavala and adjacent Khandala, coming in to enjoy the view of the Sahyadris. And Lonavala has plenty of view points from where you get a commanding view of the Western Ghats. One of the most famous points among them is Tiger’s Leap.

The view from Tiger’s Leap is especially breathtaking during and just after the monsoons, with the Sahyadri hills coated in fresh and vibrant shades of green. From here, you get amazing views of Aamby Valley and you can also see Bushi Dam and Tungarli Lake, both of which are other popular destinations within Lonavala. Tiger’s Leap and Lion’s Point are part of a wide open cliff, a few meters away from the Lonavala-Aamby Valley road. Well-marked and teeming with visitors most of the time, this is a spot you cannot miss. From here, you get an almost unobstructed view of the hills across the horizon.
