1 day trek to Matheran(Sunset point) via Dodhani (Panvel) on 11th August 2013.


BAAN Hikers have arranged a 1-day trek to Panvel Matheran via Dodhani on 11th Aug 2013

Although Matheran can be accessed through various entry points, another most scenic route is Panvel-Matheran through Sunset point.

The base village was not less than a heaven with scenic high hills covered with dark rain clouds and waterfall from the top of the hill which was truly mesmerizing.

On our way we came across a small temple with enough space around it for the group to enjoy a short break

This route crosses a village, climbs up a ridge, enters a forest where due to heavy fog, one can’t see the person walking in front. We enter Matheran through the sunset point and then traverse across Matheran to reach Dastoori from where we cab it down to Neral station.
