Matheran

One Tree Hill Point

Highlights

This is a well-known & beautiful hill station in Maharashtra. Matheran is a paradise for hikers, particularly in the monsoons. It has many routes and one can always spend an enjoyable hiking day exploring these routes.

The type of soil here is red. The top of Matheran has excellent walking paths as well as lakes, which add to the charms of this place.

There are many trekking routes such as climb from Bhivpuri to Garbett point via Garbett plateau. From Chauk via village Warose go up the Shivaji Ladder. From village Ambewadi to One Tree Hill Point. From Vangani to Porcupine Point, via Panvel lake, etc.

Many such combinations are possible. A party can climb up from one route and descend from another. There are many enjoyable walks through the thick forest at the top. A separate route guide for Matheran is locally available.

History

H. P. Mallet, who was Collector of Thane, discovered this hill in 1880. He noticed the thick forest and enquired about the hill from local villagers. In the native dialect, they replied, Mathe Ran Hai, meaning ‘Up there (Mathe) is a jungle (ran).’ Mallet made regular excursions to it and finally, a hill railway was constructed here in 1907.

One Tree Hill Point

Matheran has 28 points and One Tree Hill is one of them. It’s the most preferred route by trekkers and also the most adventurous one of them all. Here, you will find small trails surrounded by some dense forest.

The One Tree Hill point is, as the name suggests, a point where there exists only one standing tree; but the real reason this point is a must-visit spot is because of its immense natural beauty. A tree blossoming atop a lush green hill which is enveloped by dense forests of varying shades of green is indeed a sight to lose yourself in. Standing at this point, one has access to a panoramic and unobstructed view of the deep valleys and stretching forests that surround the hill station of Matheran.
