About Matheran –

Matheran became the popular summer retreat when in 1907 a quaint toy train from Neral made its first ascend to the top. Its air is pure and trails are free of vehicular traffic as the road from Neral terminates to Dasturi Naka and the only way to explore the top is by foot or on horseback. 

The plateau extends over 7.4 sq km and reaches the elevation of 803 meters. The vegetation of Matheran transforms dramatically from near barren plains and open deciduous forests to the dense semi evergreen and evergreen jungles dominated by Jamun, Anjan, Indian Medlar and Kokam. 

Matheran is the closest natural site to resound the rattling cries of the colourful Indian Giant Squirrel. Matheran is a haunt of forest birds like drongos, bulbuls, babblers, flycatchers and thrushes. It is also home to the highly elusive Small Indian Civet, Rusty Spotted Cat and Striped Hyena.

Hill forts like Chanderi, Malanggad, Peb can be seen at the North while Prabalgad, Irshal, Manikgad and Karnala stands to the southwest.
