Hill stations are nature's way of hugging you tight and whispering, 'Relax, rejuvenate, and revel in the beauty around you.

Visiting any place in the Sahyadri Hills of Maharashtra is about breathtaking viewpoints. One such stunning viewpoint is The Lion's Point in Lonavala.

One of the most popular viewpoints in one of Maharashtra's most popular hill stations, Lion's Point or Lion Point, is a place you must visit before exploring the rest of the gems in the Sahyadri mountains.

The place attracts hundreds of tourists and locals on weekends and holidays, especially during the monsoon season, as dozens of small waterfalls, lush green hills, and lakes can be seen, along with mesmerising sunrise and sunset views.

All about the Lion's Point, Lonavala

Lion's Point is a wide cliff just a few metres from the Lonavala-Aamby Valley highway.

Contrary to what many believe, Lion's Point was not named because many lions were around. Instead, it got its name because the hill resembles a lion sitting in a sphinx position. And, well, the name just stuck!

From this point, you can see Tungarli Lake and Bushi Dam, popular tourist attractions in Lonavala. The place is well-signposted and should be noticed, especially if you visit during monsoons or on weekends.

Lion's Point sees a bustling crowd on weekends, with enthusiasts showcasing various unique car brands and sports bikes. If you're a fan of sports bikes, you're in for a treat as you'll get to admire many of them passing along the roads.

The view from the cliff's edge, partially protected by a railing, is majestic.

You have an almost 180-degree view of the hills. During the monsoon, the hills and valleys turn green, and dozens of waterfalls gush from the jagged rocks.

Since it is an open cliff, you will be exposed to strong and chilly winds, especially during the monsoon and winter months. And while you might be tempted to reach over the gaps in the railing to perform a reckless action, we recommend you don't.

For families with kids, Lion's Point offers additional entertainment with horse and camel rides available. Several food stalls offer a variety of snacks to satisfy your hunger cravings as you take in the stunning scenery.
