Situated in the outskirts of mumbai near Raygad is this beautiful place named Matheran. It can be reached via local train till Neral. Then, reach the starting point of matheran trek which is around 20 mins drive from the bottom for which there are a number of taxis available at a fairly high price around Rs. 80. On the way to top u can find small water falls.
A really very good place to hangout with friends for a trek. There are a number of points like echo point, honeymoon point and so on. Also there is a lake on the way which is good. Ideal time to visit this place is between September and December. The place has a very cool temperature. There are many scenaries to look out for. If u are a photographer this is quiet a decent place fr that. The total trek will be around 15 kms. Once you come down beware that u won't be able to feel ur legs😂😂 if u aren't a habitual trekker.
