Charlotte Lake is about 2 kms from the Post Office has beautiful scenery and greenery. On the left is Pisarnath Temple, Echo Point, Louisa Point are on the right side of it. Matheran city gets its drinking water. Since this lake supplies drinking water to the town, boating, swimming and fishing is strictly prohibited here. One can stand atop these... More

A lake situated in the middle of Matheran that hosts a zip-wire for people to use. I think there are other activities based around this lake as well. There is a dam too where people bath and cool off, and the waterfall near the edge (be careful!) provides great opportunities for photography. Plenty of stalls that provide snacks and drinks...

Pleasure to see a lake (actually pond size) on a hill, and amazing birdlife around it for those into birdwatching. Be there early in the day to witness fog over the lake.

The lake by itself is beautiful....but better to avoid if you're going on a weekend as that is when hordes of people descend and it gets very very crowded. You'll have people taking baths underneath the falls and plenty of garbage thrown around as well. If you want some peace and quiet a better option is to cross the lake,... More

Its a nice place to sit and admire the greenery of the hills with water on the opposite side. Just in front of the lake there is a waterfall where you will be able to go right to the edge. The view of the valley from there is superb.

We walked to the Lake from our hotel, The Verandah in the forest . The walk was short and energizing. The lake was calm and clear surrounded by thick green trees. There were more monkeys and stray dogs than people. This lake provides drinking water to Matheran.

The lake is mesmerizing. Its quiet and has dense trees around it. It feels like you are in heaven. There is also a zip line across the lake for the adventurists. There is a little block created so that the lake turns out to be a small but wide waterfalll where people gather around to take bath and enjoy.
