The second day of our trip to matheran concluded with a beauty to behold. The vibrant sun was setting for the day and the hue surrounding it was a scene to behold. It was very nice viewing just like viewing a rainbow after the rains

This is a wonderful place with an amazing sunset view. Lots of tourist visits this place in the evening to get a glimpse of sunset. Having tea or coffee while sunset is a wonderful experience.

We walked all the way to the sunset point, so it took us almost an hour to reach. So you can leave by 4:00 to reach there if you walk. If you take a horse ride you will reach earlier. Hope I answered your question :)
