Tiger Leap :
It is one of the most fascinating places in this area. If someone carefully observes the valley from this point, it will appear as if a tiger is leaping into the valley. Thus, the place has been named as Tiger's leap. Special arrangements have been made for the tourists to view the panoramic site of the valley, via the safe confines of a big hole from this point. Moreover, for an enthralling experience, throw a stone from this point and see it topple down the valley and get destroyed.
Amrutanjan Point :
Amrutanjan point is yet another point located high up in Khandala. It provides excellent view of the places nearby. As there is a lot of flat space available here, the point is a well suited location for an enormous sight of the valley as well as the Duke's Nose. Besides, you can also see the city of Khopoli from here. It is situated at the end of the first slope, as you enter Khandala.
Bhushi Dam :
