General Peter Lodwick Memorial Point, Mahabaleshwar

Lodwick Point is one of the several viewpoints in Mahabaleshwar. It is located close to elephant head point. This point was set up in memory of General Peter Lodwick, reportedly the first British Officer to climb up. The memorial is about 25 ft tall and has some inscriptions detailing the general.

Last 1 km needs to be covered by foot. Alternatively one can take a horse ride. 
Some photos of Lodwick point for you.



This stone says Peter Lodwick led British troops in 1824 war in Kittor- against Rani Chennamma and Sangolli Rayanna. Thus he was responsible for lots of bloodshed in South India. Nonetheless Peter Lodwick is credited with establishing Mahabaleshwar hill as a hill resort.

 View from this point is normal- same valleys as you'd see elsewhere in Mahabaleshwar.
