Charlotte Lake Is Best Point to Visit In Matheran and It Is Very Near to Girivihar Hotel. This Is the Best Place for Photography. Even Lake Crossing Activity is Done Here.

It is generally crowded here. I was there in the rains thinking that rains don't invite many people to Matheran. But I was wrong, the weekdays were serene but the weekend when I decided to go for the horse ride tour was a mistake. The lake was thronged by hordes of people and that was a turn off.

As with most of the points in matheran, this too is just average. The view over the mountain is scenic and one can enjoy the sunset from there. Do the usual touristy things like having a nimbu paani or Maggi at one of the many shops around. that's about as much you can do here

At just little less than 1 km from our hotel, was the Charlotte Lake. Whilst nothing exciting about this lake, as it is quite dirty as well, but the walk and the view of the valley from the other side was really nice. Given that you hardly have things to do in Matheran, one must visit this place. There is... More

I have been to Matheran time and again and have visited Charlotte Lake always. Alas, it wasn't to be this time. The lake was dried up. It was peak of summer in Mumbai when we decided to go to Matheran for a cool weekend, but the lake had dried up. The general area is quite good for hanging around and... More
