It is one of the only few places in the world where all vehicles are banned which makes this hill station totally pollution free and unique.. Matheran takes you over a hundred years back in time when there were no cars.
With vehicles being banned in Matheran, the place is quite peaceful despite the thousands of visitors that come visiting through the year.
There are a lots of lookout ”points” that provide spectacular views of the surrounding hills and valleys. Matheran has a reasonably dense forest cover. Being a hill station it is pleasant almost throughout the year though the nights can get a bit chilly.
The best time to go to Matheran is probably from September to June as the monsoons get really heavy during the rest of the year. Matheran is a visual beauty post monsoons with lush greenery, waterfalls and the lake full with water (Sitting next to which you can enjoy a vada pav [Indian burger] or sip a glass of fresh sugarcane juice).
From the above you can tell that Matheran is just the perfect place to find peace away from the city where you can relax, enjoy the serene nature all around and switch off from the outside world.
