Matheran Hill Station Tour Package

 
 
 
     
 
Matheran is a fascinating hill-station 80-km east of Mumbai in Alibag district is situated at an Altitude of 800m. This little hill paradise has been left largely undisturbed, since the time when an Englishman, Hugh Mallet, Collector of Thane, discovered it in 1850 and declared it a fine place for shady walks.

Matheran is the closest hill station to Mumbai and Pune. Ideally suited for the weekend Matheran provides a break from the city.

Perched on top of a hill and enveloped in shady trees, Matheran is ringed by walking tracks.
The views from the look out, which drop sheer to the plains, is fantastic. On clean days it is even possible to see Mumbai from Hart Point.




A Picturesque And Serene Hideout
One gets to breath fresh air over here, as vehicles of any kind are not permitted in the town, which makes it a very quiet, serene place.

This ban on vehicles makes the journey to Matheran an adventurous journey. The journey involves an adventurous two-hour ascent in a toy train. With food and drink vendors and monkeys jumping on and off, as the valley glides by sedately. Hikers can opt for a tough 11-km hike through thick and shady forests.

Have A Nice Walk
There are a lot of nice walks in Matheran and points like Louisa Point, Panorama Point and Little Chouk Point have fantastic views. Make it a point to watch the sunset from Louisa Point.

One can also see the little Charlotte Lake and the Parsi and Hindu cemeteries near Rambaug Point. For the adventure trekkers, the interesting places to visit are the romantic precipice called the "Byron Garbutt" point, "Panorama Point".

Trekkers can try a footpath southwards from One Tree Hill, where Shivaji's ladder descends into the plains. This path was discovered by Mallet but was known to the local people for centuries.

One can stand atop these peaks and survey the wild ravishing landscape, and the reddish brown mountain ranges. The red soil is everywhere. Matheran is a continuous poem of shady, thickly wooded paths of red mud and velvet moss, stretching endlessly.
