As the place itself says Panorama, of course it has a beautiful panoramic view. One thing one should be careful about this point is there are a lot of monkeys over here. PS- One should take care fo their belongings

We went to Matheran at a time when the landscape was quite barren. While yes, we could see a lot of the valley and it was a nice walk / horse ride to this point but we were expecting nice green mountains. Sadly, that only happens in monsoon.

We usually do day trips to Matheran from Mumbai, and Panorama Point is a favourite hike. Went there recently after a two year gap, the previous trip in 2016 was to enjoy the mass blooming of pretty purple Karvi wildflowers.

To beat the city traffic we left Mumbai by car around 6 in the morning. The road is not very good after Chowk and that, along with a breakfast break at the Karjat junction, took up a fair bit of time. Karjat is a must stop for deliciously fresh and piping hot Vada Pav. They are deep fried, loaded with carbs and cholesterol, in short perfectly unhealthy but why do they taste so much better here than in Mumbai ? I binged on an extra serving too.

The paid car park at Dasturi Naka was abysmal as usual. The Matheran taxi mafia had hogged all the better parking spots, leaving other vehicles with no choice but to park further down the messy muddy path where hapless horses heavily overloaded with goods, were being coaxed to ply their way up the mountain to Matheran town. It's pathetic the way the horses are treated so cruelly.

The path to Panorama Point begins from this messy parking area where you will be approached by guides and ghodawallas. You also need to watch out here for mischievous monkeys who are waiting to relieve you of anything that remotely resembles food.

After a short stretch of garbage strewn area, the trail through the forest becomes beautiful and clean, just what a forest should be. A few small landslides during the rains had not yet been cleared out and at several parts, the karvi undergrowth had taken over the path completely. We had to tread warily through these sections as Matheran is full of snakes. We made our way through safely enough without disturbing any!

It was overcast that morning and the clouds came in, so the panoramic views of Panorama Point were missing. Not the wildflowers though, and it was a lovely walk all to ourselves with not another human in sight to and fro.

The trail to Panorama Point is an easy ~5km to and fro walk on a level path, though it is very rubbly indeed in several sections so good walking shoes are a must. You can also hire a horse from the parking area at negotiable rates, no idea how much as we prefer to walk. When the skies are clear, the view is fantastic from the trail as well as from the Point. We did not get much of a view this time but it was fresh and a lovely change from the city.

Young children may find this trail tiresome and it is most definitely not a disabled friendly activity.
