Thanks for the reply ! Appreciate it.
Hi Rajshree, Matheran is perhaps the Ideal place to be in December. Rather then activities, you will be solely in love within Matheran. I would suggest you to stay in Usha Ascot. Happy Travelling !

I’m not looking for any extensive activities as well. I just want to spend nice quiet time amongst the nature and explore the surroundings ! And your suggestion about the stay is appreciated. Beacuse that’s my most important need, a good stay!
The closest railhead to Matheran is in Neral (21 kilometres). You can get on the Deccan Express from Mumbai or the Sahyadri Express from Pune; both ply every day. From Neral you will have to go to Matheran by road, which is a 30-minute journey. Many local trains on the Mumbai-Karjat route also stop at Neral. If the above is dicey, contact any travel agency and hire a cab.

Yes. Most of the place you need to go by walk. So you would need a stay and then walk upto Matheran top
I’m thinking of just hiring a cab , Uber or Ola directly from the airport as I’ll have a bit of luggage and it will be hard to manage it on a “hop on hop off “ journey. I read somewhere that cars are not allowed to drive upto Matheran ,is that true?
