Tiger's Point, Lonavala

It's really disheartening to find tourist places being badly maintained. Tiger's Point in Lonavala is one of the places which most visitors traveling to Lonavala visit and every inch of the view point is spread with glass pieces. On our Tata Bolt drive, we drove to Tiger's point and were really disappointed with the situation.

There are few eateries and non of them serve quality food, so better don't expect anything at Tiger's point and pack your snacks and water bottles, from Lonavala itself. The barricade as well is broken and if you are visiting with kids, better be careful.

Being summer, there was no good view, I had visited few years back during monsoon and it had beautiful view with all greens. The weather was no better than Mumbai, it was very much hot, humid and foggy as we visited in the afternoon, might be it gets better once the sun sets. Heard from few fellow bloggers, they go for a late night drive from Mumbai to Tiger's point.
