Connaught Peak


Connaught Peak in the Old Mahabaleshwar Road is the second highest peak in Mahabaleshwar. This peak was formerly called as Mount Olympia. In 1880, the Duke of Connaught visited this fabulous spot and he was so inspired by the grandiose of the peak that he renamed the peak with his name. After that Mount Olympia became called by the name Connaught Peak. Situated at an altitude of 1400 meters this peak is a favourite destination of riders.

Besides its challenging treks and rides, this peak offers stupendous views of the entire Mahabaleswar valley. Krishna Valley, Kamalgadh, Elphinston Point, Torana, Pratapgad Ajinkyatara and Venna Lake looks marvelous when viewed from the top of this peak.
