Matheran is a hill station, near Mumbai, in the west Indian state of Maharashtra. It’s known for its mild climate and well-preserved colonial architecture. Motor vehicles are banned and many visitors arrive by narrow-gauge railway on the 1907 Neral–Matheran Toy Train. The Panorama Point lookout offers views across the mountains of the Western Ghats. Louisa Point has views of waterfalls and the ancient Prabal Fort. There are many routes to reach Matheran but the one of most beautiful and scenic route is from Dodhani village at Panvel side to the Sunset point on Matheran. The experience of walking through the fog in this forest is really a wonderful experience.
