This spot is also known as sunset point. Its just two minutes walk from Monkey Point. As the name implies you can enjoy sunset. Usually all the sunset points will be at sea. But here you can see the sun going behind the hill. The view of the nature is awesome. But what I enjoyed most is the meeting of Mumbai - Pune highway and expressway. The view of the roads from top will catch your attention. So we may forget to look at the sun. We will be confused by two roads and won't be able to differentiate between two. We can sit there and enjoy the view by having tea and snacks from local shop.Explore now
