It is a hill station near Mumbai.
It’s known for its mild climate and well-preserved colonial architecture.
Vehicles are banned over here.
The different points have different views across the mountains and waterfalls.
This is the best place to visit during monsoon. .
If you want to enjoy the lake area, so be there early in the morning.In summer avoid the afternoon timing.Walkable distance form the market area.

Since we were staying at Verandah in the forest, we visited the lake multiple times. One was on a Sunday when it was crowded even early in the morning and another time on a Monday which was much better with very few people.

Lot of cheating goes on in Matheran. When we had been there for the first time, we decided to see a lot of places. Basically there are plenty of view points which offer the views of the valley and surrounding mountains at different angles. the view points are all kinda similar and there are no striking differences. The best view point is called Louisa. Rest kinda sucks. So if you see Louisa you have seen it all. We hired two horses for the whole day and paid about 7k. Thats because we hired from the parking lot. Once you reach Matheran parking lot, don't negotiate with anyone. Get a ticket for the train that goes to the town. And hire a horse at the town market. That will be way cheaper. Still it depends on how many places you want to see. I suggest go to Louisa point and spend the entire day there. You will save a lot of money with that. The more you want to roam around, the more money you will have to shell out.
