Matheran in Monsoon
Matheran (2500 ft) is located on off the Mumbai-Pune Route and is also accessible by a heritage train via Neral. Matheran is a popular weekend getaway for Mumbaikars and is mostly visited during summers and winters. However, a growing number of people prefer Matheran during monsoon because of the climate, greenery, waterfalls and picturesque view it offers.
Matheran in monsoon is excellent for day / overnight hikers. Neral, nearest railhead is 10 kms from Matheran and one can enjoy hike up the hill enjoying many spontaneous waterfalls and excellent views enroute.
Inside Matheran, rains can be persistent and dense fog may prevail in some areas making visibility difficult. All this makes Matheran all the more exciting for adventure seekers and guests looking to enjoy monsoon.
