Hello Anil, How much does a horse riding cost for sightseeing?
Normally horse riders charge Rs 400/- for taking to about 05 sightseeing locations. This gets covered in about an hour.
But this Horse ride cost can be negotiated a bit on bargaining. Depending on number of additional spots you want to include, they charge a bit more. But there is scope for bargaining.
July 2022, Now it is 1110/- per person for 5 site points and 2500/- for 15 sites and return back to toy train station at there.15 sites it will take about 4-5 hours
We have paid Rs.5000/- ( 4 Horse Ride ) to cover 17 points which includes Louisa Point, Echo Point, Lords Point, Honeymoon Point. Charlotte Lake Point, etc. Total time taken only 3 Hours, which could be covered by walking within 4-5 Hours. But due to 1st visit unknown to place & points we have completed by Horse Riding, but on 2nd Day we have visited Alexander Point, Ram Baug Point (Sunrise Point), Little Chowk Point by walking & covered within 2.5 Hours time (Started early morning at 5.15 a.m.)
I paid 2500 irs. For All sightseeing and it may my mistake to trust.
It completely depends upon the number of points you want to cover and the distance between the points. If I can remember correctly, they were charging INR 350-400/- for nearest 3 points from the Matheran railway station. The more number of points you include and the farther it is, the higher the charge, but at the same time more negotiation can be done. We stayed there for 2 days and covered most of the points by walking. Though it was tiring but at the same time it was fun. Try to choose different points in different directions as points in the same direction gives the view of same valley from different angles. A local person told me that the number of points we had covered in a day, had we taken the horses, it would have costed us a few thousand bucks each as we were travelling a lot in different directions. Hope this helps!!
hii... there are total 28 points to see, if you cover it by walking, you will never finish it in a day, it needs 3 days to cover. hoarse ride will charge you minimum 100 to 120 to reach upto matheran market place from amal lodge, and there after 350 to 500 rs for sight seeing.
but too be frank, you may get backache after horse riding, you can select any few places in a day and enjoy trekking, because many places are similar only angles are different, its very nice experience though its exhaustive.
