Parsi Point, Panchgani Overview

Situated on the way to Mahabaleshwar, the picturesque Parsi Point overlooks the Krishna Valley and the sparkling waters of the Dhom Dam. It is surrounded by lush green mountains and provides some spectacular views. If you're looking for a place to stop for a while and just breathe, this is it. The best part about it is the soul-soothing breeze that refreshes any tired traveller's senses.

The Parsi Point gets its name from its significance to the Parsi community in the past. Best suited for visits during sunset/sunrise, it provides an excellent setup for the perfect landscape photograph. There are various refreshment stalls in and around the place offering delicious snacks.

One can also avail the service of a telescope vendor for different angled views of the area. Camel rides are a fun feature. Skydiving and other adventure sports used to be too, until it was shut down due to some accidents. However, kids will have a fun time here thanks to the ample play area.
