The point overall gives you a sense of peace and solitude. A visit in monsoons ensures company of misty clouds, making the place even more dreamy and romantic

Nothing much to see there as the view is restricted by trees. Even if you wish to visit the point, do that during sunlight as the place is empty and a eerie silence all around. But perfect for birding and you may get chance to see the Giant squirrel there.

Babbington Point is one amongst the many view points in Mahabaleshwar hills. Due to the heavy undergrowth and bushes, the view of the valley below is not that clear. Not to improve the upkeep to restore its glory

It seems in the past it was one of the attractive destinations. But presently it was not even worth a visit as the view of the valley is blocked due to grown up vegetation. The spot needs upkeep to maintain its charm.
