Matheran is a small charming hill station located a hundred
kilometers from Mumbai. The climate is pleasant throughout the year
but it is magical during monsoon and very chilly during winters.
Previously, trekkers used to make brave and adventurous trips to
hill station atop after facing deep forests and occasionally
leopards just to have the bewitching and magnificent view of lush
plains, silver rivers and deep forests.
You can reach this hill station on a horse back or hand pulled carts
or very joyous toy train. Walker's paradise, this bewitching hill
station is covered with ever green forest with about 38 lookout
points to take your breath away. Forests keep it cool and makes it a
perfect getaway point for every traveler. If you reside in Mumbai,
take a week's off and spend some time here praising nature's beauty.
Throng to the wonderful resplendent abode of Maharashtra and
capture the enigmatic beauty of the Matheran hill station.
Surrounded by exotic greens, Matheran is an precious gem of
