A beautiful lake in Matheran. The lake is surrouned by trees. Cool and pleasant. Good place to relax for some time after the trek. There is a small dam as well. Lot of eating options available there. One of the places to be if you are in Matheran.

Walking through the deep dark woods, hiking on the high and low grounds, the canopy of trees gives way to the vast expanse of the Charlotte Lake suddenly, open to the skies! It was a beautiful sight and worth all the walk in the sun! P.S. Try the maggi noodles at the lone snack shop near the lake, adjacent to... More

This is a nice trek from the main market area. My husband and I chose to walk, but you can also ride a horse or a rickshaw. We also went to Cecile and Echo points which offered a picturesque view.

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
