This point gives a beautiful view do the valley down as well the adjoining mountains. Thanks to the telescope made available by an enterprising ugh here, you can closely see many points like the Fort, camping caves, rock formation resembling Ganpati etc.

The Alexander point is the nearest attraction point from Matheran station. The mountain & sunrise view from this point is simply great. The self cable car is an added attraction at this point.
