Matheran, situated on the range of Western Ghats at the height of 800 Meters (2625 feet), is a most famous Hill Station situated in Karjat Tahsil, Raigad District of Maharashtra. Matheran has a reasonably dense forest cover and thus the name derived. The name Matheran means either ‘Forest on Top’ or ‘Woodland overhead’. Matheran as a Hill Station was discovered by a British, Mr. Huge Mallet, the then Collector of Thane, in 1850.
Matheran is an eco-sensitive region, declared by the Ministry of Environment and Forest, Government of India. It is one of the few places in the world where vehicles are not allowed, which makes the place different and peaceful from others. There are around 38 lookout points that provide spectacular views of the surrounding hills and valleys including Garbet Point.
