Hey I live in Pune and next month i am planning a road trip to Matheran. Can you tell me something about the place and what mode of transport should I use?
Thanks Sir for updating.Use car if possible.
If you love toy train book in advance.
I forget the name of the station but one have to stop their car at that station, and have to go walk, or by horse.
It is Dasturi Point.
Car goes upto Dasturi Point then from there it is 30 to 40 minutes walk
It's a very beautiful hill station, and there are many points and one beautiful Charlotte lake. Must go at Eco Point by hiking
Sunset point is also very beautiful.
Whole Matheran hill station was developed by Britishers.
Matheran was discovered by Hugh Poyntz Malet, the then district collector of Thane district in May 1850. Lord Elphinstone, the then Governor of Bombay laid the foundations of the development as a future hill station. The British developed Matheran as a popular resort to beat the summer heat in the region.
Even many points were named after them
