Matheran Tourist Attractions
Natural Sights

Matheran has 38 points at which can get a glimpse of nature's beauty. However to cover most of these points requires atleat one night stay in Matheran. The nature herself maintains a mild discipline. The heavy branches of trees are not so thickly interwoven that you cannot see through them; the shrubs do not spill over indiscriminately on to the roads. Monkeys are your companions wherever you go. They sit in your verandah and on your porch, hugging their babies, combing their hair, squabbling occasionally as humans do.

King George Point

A must visit point in monsoon as it offers a beautiful view of the waterfall formed by the water overflowing from Charlott Lake . One can even reach he mouth of the waterfall with care, strong wind prevents the water from falling down and throws it back.

Charlott Lake and Louisa Point

Charlott Lake is the only water source atop Matheran and it provides water to entire Matheran, Louisa Point offers a beautiful face on view of the waterfall seen from the King George point.

Bazaar

The bazaar is just that a small marketplace, not a commercial shopping complex. It runs the length of one street, and contains shops and stalls that sell the produce of Matheran. You can see workmen hunching over strips of leather, fashioning the Kolhapuri chappal that Matheran is famous for. Leather bags, leather belts, leather shoes& the workmanship are exclusive and the prices reasonable. There are also glass birds and dried wild flowers for sale that have a quaint appeal.
