Matheran is a comfortable little slope station that stands at a rise of 2600 feet above ocean level, and is only 100 kilometers from Mumbai, making it the ideal end of the week escape. With its name truly meaning “overhead woods”, Matheran is the littlest slope station in all of India, yet it is very well known as far as voyagers searching for a short trek in the midst of stupendous vistas and quietness.
Matheran is one of the not very many places on the planet that don’t permit any vehicles whatsoever, so the minute you venture into this little town, you will be transported back to a charming old-world time of red-ruined streets, car free pathways, and lavish green slopes all around. The virus breeze and the outside air without contamination is reason enough for travelers to crowd to Matheran throughout the entire year.
Likewise with some other slope station, Matheran is renowned for its perspectives. It has a sum of 36 perspectives from where you can appreciate charming perspectives on the Sahyadri mountain go, the most famous of them being Echo Point, Alexander Louisa Point, Panorama Point and Porcupine Point. The greater part of these focuses have simple trekking trails, and they offer clearing perspectives on the mountains, the dawn, nightfall, and everything in the middle! Charlotte Lake, near Echo Point, is an exceptionally prominent cookout spot where nature devotees love to proceed to go for a walk in.
