Matheran Hill Station

Matheran is a small hill station around 120 km from Mumbai, located in the wide range of western ghats. Matheran is specially known for it’s incredible beauty during monsoon season. In my recent outing, I enjoyed the true natural beauty of Matheran specially the hills, green forest, waterfalls. The best way to travel to Matheran is a toy train, which starts from the neral station. 2 hrs of toy train journey through green hills and forest was a unique experience,

When I first entered in Matheran,I felt like I was in some other era. Something like I have traveled back in time.The place was so silent and peaceful, greenery all around, narrow and confusing roads, horses and traditional homes. Matheran is vehicle free; so one needs to take a horse ride or manual rickshaw for longer distance.

There is a local flea market near Matheran station. Food, hotels and home stays are decent & affordable. Just have to be a bit careful around monkeys. Monkeys usually grab food items.

 Valley crossing is the famous adventure sport in Matheran. It was so scary and breathtaking, but good experience.

Matheran is one of the peaceful places I have even been to. No Doubt, it was fun and rejuvenating trip.
