The village is situated at the foothills of Matheran and you can get a view of Chanderi Fort and Peb Fort from here. During monsoon and early winter this a very scenic trek where you will gradually gain altitude and enter Matheran from Sunset point.
Matheran’s mean forest over mountain head, is an eco-sensitive zone full of greenery and vibrant colour’s of Nature, People and a very vibrant main street too. During monsoon this place has a magical and mystic beauty about it with mountains playing hide-and-seek behind rain clouds.
This hill station is also very unique, as it has been declared by the Ministry of Environment and Forest, Government of India. It is Asia's only automobile-free hill station.
Dodhani Point is also known as Sunset point from here Prabalgad Fort / Kalavantin Durg / Irshalgad / Karnala Fort / Morbe Dam are visible.

This is an uphill trek that takes you through grass patches and paddy fields; a small waterfall and temple. Once you reach sunset point, Matheran’s main bazaar is another 3.5 km walk from sunset point.
