Day 1

Hey alllll....hope you'll guys are travelling.. travelling and travelling...if not please do...

So I'm all set to take you guys on a crazy roll a cosrer ride with a decent budget trip I've recently been to...

Matheran!

So we started Friday night @9pm IST by Mumbai express from Begumpet railways station! The night went by playing UNO and munching food (homemade you see..). Went to sleep around 2am IST..

What a start!

Day 2

Our second day started with a hot cup of tea and a very famous snack of Lonavala...the one and only wadapav ;) it was quite yummm..

Time to get down at Kajrat and quickly board local train to Neral (local train cost to Niral: 10 RS). To be honest, the local train was quite clean and ofcourse comfortable...

Local train!

As and when we reached Neral, they were local vehicles to take you to Matheran (this is one hell of a ghat road with n number of tiny water falls - I'm exaggerating...I mean water streams). If you think you got great stamina, try taking a walk and it's absolutely splendid!!

You'll find a lot of monkeys (my bad!! Rowdy monkeys) trust me I'm not exaggerating at all...

Caution!!! : Be careful with these monkeys as they can snatch anything and everything visible (obviously eatables)...

Rowdy fellow!

We're absolutely captivated by those stunning view points. So here's the hard part, walking back to resort. We kept dragging ourselves (motivation: hunger ;)). Once we reached our stay, we changed and headed to near by food court. Believe me, the food was true blessing and couldn't stop hogging!
