Matheran – Nature all the way
Ever imagined a place full of trees with no vehicle honking near Mumbai?
If you have ever thought so, here is the place where you can unplug yourself & experience the abode of nature. Matheran is a small hill located near Mumbai free from any kind of vehicles or pollution.
From Mumbai, catch a local train to Neral & from Neral sharing cab is available which will drop you at the entry point. There is no vehicle entry inside the premises, hence the best way to commute is either by walk or by horse riding. I chose walking as my option, reason being the route is simple & walking in forest has its own swag 😛
There are several points which can not be covered in a single day. Better to consider one part of the hill & cover all the points there. 2 days trip is enough for this place. Every point has its own existence, view & calmness. Cilia Point is a must visit point because of the waterfall. The scenery becomes magnificent & breathtaking due to a waterfall.
There are many points in Matheran that will take your breath away. If nature is not your forte, try options like zipping, horse riding etc.
Accommodation: It is easy to find a room during offseason. However, during the monsoon, the place is jam-packed with tourists. Hence, it is advisable to book a room prior to reaching here. The cost of a room varies from Rs 800 to Rs 4000 per night depending upon your choice & location of your stay.
Food: Vanilla shops are available at most of the tourist spots. While walking it is easy to locate shops. However, all those shops only provide snacks & tea. For having a proper meal chose any restaurants in the market & enjoy your food. There are limited options for having food.
I have been 4 or 5 times to Matheran & every time I visit; it surprises me with its beauty. One of the best getaways near Mumbai. I have already covered most of the parts of Matheran. But, I still visit it every monsoon for simple reasons as follows:
*) It helps me to unwind my mind from all the clutters of working life.
*) It helps me to enjoy the nature without any disturbance.
*) A day spent without technology & disturbance is a must to cherish the past moments.
*) If a philosopher kind, it is easy to write down some of the poems or the lines 😉
Looking for some peace time, head to this place. It will never disappoint you. I love this getaway, I am sure you too will.
