There is nothing much to see here except the bridge to cross the lake to go to the Echo point and Shiv Temple which are good.

The lake is serene. Sitting in one of the shacks around the lake and sipping sugarcane juice is a nice experience. There is nothing much to do other than sitting by the lake.

The only lake in Matheran surrounded by thick forests, is just about one km walk from market, through forested dust roads. Most visitors prefer to walk but few prefer horse ride. Walking through forested Matheran is an experience never enjoyed in present day city life, and walk to the lake is real fun.
The serene lake is formed by a dam on which visitors walk to the other end. Nearby is an opening with grand view of Mountain range.
Another point nearby is the echo point. About 0.4 kms. The dirt paths to the lake and the echo point are in one loop of apx 2.5 kms from market and the best and easiest trek in Matheran.

We visited Matheran on a weekend and Charlotte lake was our point of relaxation. Its a wonderful sight to see the lake and its serene surroundings however the local authorities have not maintained it properly. Even though matheran is a beautiful hillstation, i would not rate it very good. There is red dust everywhere and the horses keep hassling you wherever you go. The smell of the horse dung is really annoying.

I would recommend it just for a one time visit to see for yourself.

Not reccomended.
