    The road for most part is tiled but there are rough and muddy patches too. One can do it very easily on foot as it is walking distance form most hotels in Matheran and there are a few other spots to be seen on the way. There are many kiosks on the way if you need snacks, water, soft drinks etc.
    The view from the point is very nice. For better vision one should carry a binocular. There is very little shade on the site to sit and relax.
    Time taken to reach the point from the market is approximately 30-40 minutes on foot and one needs to spend around 30 minutes for viewing and photography.

    One of the top spots on the itinerary.
    Can be approached on foot, or horse back.
    About one third of the road is in very poor shape with stones and dust and the last few meters are very very bad with big stones and is downhill. Horses also stop short of the last few meters which has to be approached on foot.
    Walking time from the market is approximately 20-30 minutes and one needs to spend around 30-45 minutes at the lake.
    The lake is appreciated from the bridge and is a good photography point. One has to be careful about the monkeys here too. There are games stalls and places to eat. There are a lot of benches on the bridge to sit.
    There is a board which directs you to a waterfall which can be seen only during the monsoon season.
    Lord's point is a few minutes walk from here and there is a very nice view from the point. Carry your own binoculars. If not then one can enjoy the far away sites through telescopes available there by paying Rs 100 per person.

    The coach is the latest recent addition to the journey from Neral to Matheran. Its highly priced compared to the regular ticket but is very comfortable. The glass-top train with glass windows makes for excellent viewing pleasure. It is must to travel the Vistadome in this train too.

    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.

    Views are good, but i think the place needs to be fenced properly. The Road leading to the point is very primitive, even though the point is close to a heritage resort, some maintenance needs to be done.

    Terrain is little tough to reach the spot. Horse ride is a boon. Horse ride can be booked from Market area to this point clubbing with Charlotte Lake and Louisa Point. Charges per horse can be Rs500 to Rs700 depending upon demand(weekend/holidays/weekdays). There are few food stalls to recharge yourself. This is an evening spot and not morning spot.

    This Point is a nice 2-3 km walk through the Matheran forest. If you choose to go on horse-back, its an even greater feeling. Red soil, green forest, no vehicles and chirping of birds on the way makes a super ride, even a super walk.

    When in Matheran, do visit this Point. By itself, the Point doesn't have much to offer, but the walk or horse ride is super. Enjoy nature at its best en route.

    This point is really good in terms of variety. After visiting other points like Louiza point and One Tree Hill point, you will find its quite different from them.

    One of the five best points of Matheran. This is close to the Lake Charlotte. Both points are important places. One can see Fort of Chhatrapati Shivaji through telescope. One should not miss this poin .

    This place is located in between the panvel and matheran region of Maharashtra. We had a sudden plan to outreach this place and were off to it! We had our bikes so it went pretty easy for us to get through to the base village. Once the trek started, there were rocks pouring on us at the midway. We held our nerves & reached the top.
    The admiration at the top has its own fan base. A pretty good experience. Would love to visit here again. Would rate difficulty level as 3. Need to be alert every minute! We enjoyed to our fullest!
