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 kms from Pune). Few ST buses are available for Matheran or catch a CST bound local train from Karjat and get down at Neral (21 kms, 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 mini bus 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 – 50 minutes to 1 hour. 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 group booking or alone.
Charges – Rs.1950 (excluding new year)
Stay for one person in basic tent equipped with double-bed mattress, pillow, and Blanket.
