  • If you are staying overnight in Matheran, this point is worth going to before sunset. Watch the sun dip behind the mountains and paint everything golden. Its very beautiful.

  • When I visited Matheran, the weather was very foggy and this viewpoint was of no use. I couldnt see anything from here!

  • Also known as porcupine point. Great views especially during sunset. Sit back and enjoy the setting sun. A very popular point. Be careful of monkeys. Lots of them here. Approx 20 minutes walk from the market.
  • It is one of the best places to visit in Matheran if you are up to watch the sky at its best. You can reach there by walking from Matheran Station. Once you are here, you will get to see the beauty it holds. Watching sunset from here is what you shouldn't miss. As the colors of the sky change from blue to pink and then become dark, it is enchanting. The soft breeze will feel like music to your ears. The best time to be there is during monsoons. Make sure you follow the safety guidelines and not cross the fence.
