Matheran is quite a place which every couple or family would want to visit. The mountains and the green on the top of it attracts everyone. Approximately 110kms from Pune. There are various points to visit there in Matheran, but the approach to these sites is by walking or on the horse ride. Charollete lake is also a very good... More

Alexander Point and Rambagh Point are closer. Alexander Point gave very good view of the valley we saw from Khandala point. We felt never boring seeing the nature's view so many times. It was just amazing. The weather was quite sunny.

A decent place to visit. Not as good as Louisa Point or Lord's Point. Can visit if you stay nearby, and can skip if you have to walk long for this.

There's nothing to dislike. Beautiful scenic view. A must visit spot when in Matheran. Avoid going after evening. Early morning recommended.

I spent like 1 hour at this place. My advice don't take a horse just walk. The walk from station to this place is so good and you would love to hold hands with your beloved in this secluded trail.

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.

Go to this one for doing the 1300 ft zipline from this point to Rambaug point. It costs 400/- per person and is totally worth it. They give you a small training in a mock setup which makes you totally at ease. This wasnt the first time I did this but was the first time in India. I was sceptical... More
