Matheran is a quiet, serene hill-station, which has managed to maintain its tranquility despite being thronged by a large number of tourists every year. The town administration charges a small fee for the up-keep and cleanliness of the area, because of which they have been successful in retaining its pristine, natural ambience. Another unique aspect about this scenic place is that no vehicle is allowed within the town's limits, sustaining its precious eco-system and a clean, unpolluted air. Several spots offer panoramic and splendid views of the local surroundings, including the picturesque Charlotte Lake, which is a major draw for tourists. For those who want to carry souvenirs back home, the Matheran Bazaar is a fun-filled, exciting choice.
