From Matheran Market it is only a 15 to 20 minutes walk. Best Point to watch sunrise. At the end of the monsoon the sight is far reaching and on some good days one can see the 30 miles far away windmills in the rising sun.

Near to Maarket area and recommended to walk up to this point to experience the best sight of nature and backdrop of green forests. It is a popular site for peace seekers, which offers beautiful views of towers of Bhivpuri Power house, Palasdari Lake, Rambaug Point, Garbut Point, Chowk Point and downhill village of Borgaon and more

Alexander point gives you breathtaking view of hills and valley which surrounds Matheran. As it is very close to the main market and hotels so a person must visit it.
