Customizable

Overview

Nestled within the emerald green mountains of the Western Ghats, Matheran is a hill station as pretty as a picture postcard, known for its magical misty weather, mesmerizing panoramas and well-preserved colonial architectures here and there. The reason Matheran has been able to retain its pristine beauty is owed much to the fact that private vehicles are banned in the area. The most you can travel up by car and park it is Dasturi Car Point near Neral. From Neral Railway Station leaves the famous toy train that has been restarted on its 21km journey to Matheran once again. The 3.5 hours journey takes the passengers through breathtakingly beautiful hilly sceneries right up to the front door of your destination.

However, Matheran is not the only destination in your Matheran sightseeing package. The first stop on the itinerary is Mahabaleshwar, yet another beautiful hill stations on the Sahyadri. The town is known for its temples, lovely waterfalls set against charming landscapes and medieval fortresses. After two nights stay in Mahabaleshwar, you will be driving towards Lonavala via Panchgani. You can take a look around Panchgani on the route, enjoy a couple of sumptuous meals and reach Lonavala for an overnight stay. You can spend the next day looking around Lonavala and do local sightseeing. Once again there are magnificent lakes and waterfalls, some caves and caverns in the lap of the hills and excellent views from vantage points.On the fourth day of your Matheran sightseeing, you will finally reach Matheran. Since private vehicles are not allowed up to Matheran, you can either trek the distance from Neral or take the toy train. Either way, you get to enjoy the serene beauty of the hills on your way up. After an evening’s sightseeing and shopping, you will have to get ready to drive your way back to Mumbai.
