Camping at Matheran

Matheran is situated at a height of 803 m above sea level. Since 1907, a narrow-gauge railway line connects Matheran to Neral in the plains. Motor vehicles are completely banned in Matheran, making it quite peaceful despite the thousands of visitors that come here, mostly from Mumbai. There are a number of lookout points that provide spectacular views of the surrounding hills and valley.

Matheran is a plateau with a reasonably dense forest cover. Being a hill station it is pleasant almost throughout the year. In winter, the nights can get a bit chilly though.

Someone can visit round the year. The best time to go to Matheran is post-monsoon. It is truly spectacular at this time of the year with lush greenery, waterfalls and the lake full of water. Peoples are seen visiting every weekend mostly with their family as a part of their outing and relaxation. It is also a good place for (Sadhana) Meditations, retreats, and yoga.

How to reach:

One can catch either a Karjat bound local train or the Deccan Express from CST on the Central Railway to Neral Station.

If coming from Pune, catch any Mumbai bound train and get off at Karjat (Around 95 km from Pune). Few ST buses are available for Matheran or catch a CST bound local train from Karjat and get down at Neral (21 km, would take around 15 min).

There are many share-a-cabs which take you to Matheran from Neral. The distance from Neral to Dasturi Point (last point to which vehicles are allowed in Matheran) is 11 km. Once you have left the taxi, you can take a horse ride or get the help of porters to carry luggage up to the town

There is an entry fee Rs. 50

Cars are not allowed within Matheran. However, you can drive up and park your car at Dasturi car point, or take the newly introduced minibus shuttle from Karjat or Neral railway stations up to Dasturi. From Dasturi you must take a 40 minute horseback or man-pulled rickshaw ride to Matheran along a mud track.

Alternately you can walk from Dasturi along the rail line & make your way up to Matheran - 30 to 40 minutes. The rail track route is slightly shorter, more scenic and very much more comfortable than the rubble, dusty main road route. Coolies or porters are available at Dasturi to carry your luggage. Remember to negotiate rates in advance. You can also go with a group booking or alone.

Trekking

There are several walking trails that ascend the Matheran Plateau. These are used by local people commuting to the hill station as well as the occasional intrepid holiday-maker. From the Eastern side, trekkers start at Neral.

You can also approach from the Western side, which has the distinct advantage that you can be in the shade for most of the ascent if you start early in the morning. One route recommended during monsoon starts from the village of Dudhoni and brings you to Sunset Point in Matheran. It is suitable for beginners, and the ascent only takes 2 hours or so. There is apparently a side trip to a waterfall. Dudhoni can be reached by auto rickshaw or ST buses from Panvel. The trail is obvious in most places; when in doubt, ask a local.

 All the trails have signboards marking the way and the locals are quite helpful.

What to See

The truth is that almost all the points offer pretty good sunrise, sunset, mountain, and valley views, so walk or horse ride or take a rickshaw to whichever you prefer. Remember that the more popular points will be crowded, especially at sunset. Watch out for the aggressive Matheran macaque monkeys who will not hesitate to snatch your belongings especially anything remotely resembling food! At other times, it is peacefully surrounded by dense evergreen forests, bird songs, and pretty butterflies.

Basic Tent - Rs.1950

Stay and food for one person in the basic tent equipped with a double-bed mattress, pillow, and Blanket.

The place offers 24/7 electricity, fast-casual dining, a common toilet, changing room and views of the forest from your tent. While the campsite is meant to give you an adventurous kick, your mind and soul will be tranquillity by the serenity around too.

Our campground is fitted at the unique point on our property and is spread over 6 acres, overlooking miles and miles of forest with ample natural resources.

Taking camping to the next level, we have a kitty full of unique experiences to serve every day. A hub for nature lovers, adventure seekers, music and foodies, our Campground has it all.

Please do not litter, we believe in the saying, When you go to the mountain, leave only your footprints and bring back only memories. Simply best suited for everyone.

Also, remember we're in the wild so respect the nature around you. In case you encounter any problem please keep distance and inform our team.
