Highlights

Matheran is one of the most beautiful hill stations in Maharashtra. The hill station was discovered by Hugh Poyntz Malet in 1850 and is located at about 2625 feet above Sea level. Garbett point is located on the South-west side of Matheran with the grand view of the plateau. The huge plateau gives a view to various waterfalls on the neighboring mountains in Monsoons. This place is also one of the top things to do in Matheran hill station.

The trek starts from Diksal village. After walking for 5 minutes one can see a huge manmade lake. Visitors need to walk along the perimeter of the lake and cross a fast-moving stream. One needs a rope to cross the stream during the monsoon season. The fields and the mountains are lush green with waterfalls all around.
