Tiger’s Leap-Leap of Beauty

#Hill in Khandala

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.

"This is a very popular destination in Lonavla. Now a days they have started charging 50 INR for parking. Be sure to take a receipt. But they have added camel rides and horse rides. Better to go on weekdays in the afternoon so that you get good service. Be sure to bargain and negotiate for anything that you buy. "
