Elephant's Head Point is one of the most picturesque viewpoints in Mahabaleshwar which is famous for the stunning view of the Sahyadri ranges. Also known as Needle's Point, this famous tourist spot is best visited during sunrise and sunset. The Elephant's Point got its name as it resembles the head and trunk of an elephant.
The gap between the elephant's head and the trunk looks like a needlepoint when viewed from far, thus giving it the name Needle Point. Located beyond the Lodwick Point, the Elephant's Head Point turns lush green during the monsoons. People visiting the place can get a panoramic view of the humongous fort of Pratapgarh surrounded by Kova Valley on one side and Savitri Valley on the other side.
