Duration: 1 Day
DAY 1

Matheran is a hill station near Mumbai located in Raigad district of Maharashtra. It's a no motor vehicle hill station. One can enjoy the short toy train ride at this place. For more detail ask google baba. :p

It was Thursday when we thought that we need to go outstation this weekend but could not finalise the spot. Yet we packed our bags with pair of clothes and daily stuffs and went to office on Friday. On the Friday evening we made up our mind to land at Matheran as it was fitting a budget tour.

We left our office post lunch that day and boarded the train for Neral . By the time we reached Neral it was around 6 pm , I really don't remember the time now but the sun had already gone down. We got to know that the toy train service was suspended from Neral. It now runs only in the area of Matheran so we booked a local taxi for Matheran.

After an hour we reached to the spot beyond which no motor vehicle/ bikes were allowed. Also no horses were available as it was already dark and late .The main Matheran was still 4- 5 km away . We decided to walk through the railway track , so that we not get lost . After walking for an hour we finally reached the town of Matheran and started looking for the place to stay. After checking two three hotels we finally got two rooms to stay at decent prices . Quickly we got unpacked and went to the market to have dinner rather than having it at hotel.

Aa we were very tired we went to bed early after dinner to get up early next day.

The next day we hired a horse to ride around the town with a guide. As the terrain is not smooth it is suggested to get the horse ride to see the sights.

After all the sight seeing we were left with half day. So again we decided to walk around the location and spend more time with the places we liked.

After lots of photo shot and making our legs go through tough terrain we reached to the sunset point. It is best spot of Matheran were one can sit beside the waterfall and watch the beauty of nature. This place is very peaceful ,calm and pleasing to eye and soul.

When the sun said goodbye to us we left for the hotel . And the day ended for us after having good dinner.

Last day at Matheran: we woke up early as we had to catch the toy train and complete our trip of Matheran. After checkout from hotel we rushed to the ticket counter . We were lucky enough to get the tickets. As there was large crowd traveling back from there. When the time of departure came we got to know the engine of the train is not getting started. The engineer / mechanic were fully involved to make the thing work. After 45 minutes of effort the engine was repaired. Now it was the time to get the thrill of toy train ride. With the pleasant memories we departed away ... away .... away and away.

* Feeling and love with nature can only be felt . We cannot express it by writing. I could just share my trip experience. So guys go out feel the love of nature.
