So, monsoon is here already and you can't really skip Matheran if you leave in Maharashtra! Hence, my friends and I planned a 2-day trip to Matheran.
Firstly, we shortlisted some accommodation options, and we were all super excited.
The next day we packed our bags and we were ready to get set go by bike ✌️
From Thane to Matheran, it's about 70 km. Believe me there are so many dreamy and photogenic places on the route. You can stop anywhere and can enjoy the scenic route with a cup of tea with your besties.
So once you reach, you can park the bikes at the parking facility available at Dasturi Check Point (Entry Point to Matheran) and start walking. It's around 30 to 40 minutes walk from Dasturi (Aman Lodge) to Matheran.
You have a choice of taking a horse ride or a toy train. Walking through these paths was such a bliss and mesmerizing, because the view was unbelievable the mountains and the fog and those thick layers of green trees, wildlife and a variety of plants.
We selected the Alexander Heritage And Rainforest for our stay. Situated 20 mins walk from the Matheran Market, this place is a good heaven for vegetarians. All the Matheran spots are walking distance from this resort. They have two types of stay, Cottage rooms and tents. food facilities including lunch, tea, snack time, dinner and next day breakfast.
We reached the destination and checked in, into our rooms. And thus we saw all our nearby places which were almost 15-20 minutes away from each other.
And the overall time we spent was worth it.
