Tiger’s Leap-Leap of Beauty
The Tiger's leap is one of the most popular points, also known as 'Waghdari' is a cliff-top with a sheer drop of over 650 m, offering a wide view of the hills. The resemblance of the shape of place with that of a tiger leaping into the valley is reason of an unusual name given to this place as Tiger's Leap. Tiger's Leap is around 8 km away from Lonavala and a major tourist attraction of this place. It is a cliff top offering a comprehensive view of the hills and the Western Ghats.
This point, which provides an interesting view of the valley below, is just a short distance away from INS Shivaji. The exhilarating views should, however, be enjoyed from a safe spot rather than from the top of the cliff which is precarious. The echo point on Tiger's Leap is another major fascination. A stream also flows nearby making it a much-frequented place of couples and groups. You can also take your picnic bag here and light a bonfire in the winter evenings. Many tourists come to this location for indulging in adventurous activities like river rafting and trekking.
