Mahabaleshwar located at a height of 1353 m, it boasts of multiple attractions, rich in history, biodiversity, and architecture. This book aims to introduce readers to the natural and historical treasures that make Mahabaleshwar truly unique. This book can serve both as a field-guide for nature lovers and conservationists, as also, a travel-guide for the occasional visitor. Additionally, it is also a valuable record of history that could so easily be forgotten if not documented so wonderfully by the authors. Its ancient history, culture, spectacular views, the flora and fauna and nature trails make it attractive for visitors, but this book gives a much deeper insight into what really matters - preservation of this beloved hill-station. Away from the concrete jungle of the cities we live in, Mahabaleshwar offers rest to the eyes, breath and the soul. The book is a one-of-its-kind field guide to that place of continual wonder and delight, an invitation to share in an ongoing love story.
