Matheran- The smallest hill station in India.

It is located around 90 km from Mumbai. It is Asia's only automobile-free hill station.

The roads are not metalled and are made of red laterite earth. There are many "points" (viewpoints) in Matheran which give a panoramic view of the plains.

The only form of automobile allowed in Matheran is an ambulance operated by the Municipality. No private automobiles are allowed. Within Matheran transport facilities available are horses and hand-pulled rickshaws.
