Untouched, unspoiled and unbelievably tranquil, this popular tourist hill-station in Maharashtra is a great getaway destination. It is a quiet, serene hill-station, which has managed to maintain its tranquillity despite being thronged by a large number of tourists every year. Just 2 hrs from Mumbai, it is one of the most unpolluted cities in the region, especially since no vehicles are allowed inside its limits. Unique look-out points provide some breath-taking views of the hills and valleys of the surrounding Sahyadri Range.

One experience that you just can’t miss is the treat to your senses when you visit the lookout points of Matheran. These points offer picturesque views of the Western Ghats and lush plains dotted with villages far below. In total there are 28 such points, more popular ones being Panorama point, Monkey point, Rambagh point, Alexander point, Hart point and the One Tree Hill point. The feeling of being on a hill top with cool mountain breeze tossing your hair and the beautiful valley in front of you is truly an amazing experience.

Another unique experience is that of valley crossing, which is done on a U-shaped mountain, from the Honeymoon point. To do this activity you will have to go from one side of the mountain to other side (a distance of approximately 900 feet) hanging on rope, about 1000 feet above the valley! This is definitely a once in lifetime experience, but, mind you - It’s definitely not for the weak-hearted!

So, what are you waiting for? Matheran is waiting with open arms for you to explore and experience.
