This gives same view as that of Khandala point, but you need to walk a mile extra. This point is little big compared to Khandala point and has ample space.

1. Time : Go around 630AM and 2. Take : Torch as it might be dark if you plan to go bit early so as not to miss the golden sun... 3. Carry umbrella 4. Be ready to view the different points through the telescope... there's one person who can show you a few points there...on payment.

Alexander Point is reached after a very pleasant long walk through shady woods with dry leaves crackling underfoot. The view of the mountains and valleys is breathtaking and very beautiful. I love Matheran with its traffic free trails leading to various lookout points with gorgeous scenery. It is perfect for a weekend getaway from the hustle and bustle of Mumbai.

Whilst Louisa Point is supposed to be the best point in Matheran, this is my personal favourite. I would recommend walk to this point from the Bombay House Holiday Home area. walking thru thick greenery is really enchanting. Nice view and good photo opportunity at this point

All the view points are beautiful and will attract your attention towards the nature tails. Every place is a view point. This place again is very peaceful and surrounded by valleys.
