|Lonawalla in approximation to the Deccan plateau on western ghat is one of the most favorite tourists' destination. After climbing a significant height on the hills towards Sahara's Ambey Valley one gets the complete view of the prominent Tiger's point in the canyon.|
The Western Ghats of India are not true mountains, but are the faulted edge of the Deccan plateau. They are believed to have been formed during the break-up of the super continent of Gondwana some 150 million years ago. Refer: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Western_Ghats

This is an interesting land formation on the western edge of the plateau, Subhash.
The pyramid of this formation is quite steep and awe-inspiring.
I have never been to this place patronized by Mumbai people. I think I will make it there some day.
