Get mesmerized by the unspoiled nature trek that takes you via lush green countryside that gradually climbs up the mountain trail going through seasonal waterfalls and flowing streams. As you scale up the altitude, you get soaked in the misty atmosphere. Tiny rain drops and monsoon clouds envelop you and at times open up their curtains to wide landscapes. Finally, as you are approaching the summit crossing sunrise point to reach the unique and rich in flora and fauna forest on mountain head (Matheran – which literally translate in Marathi as “Forest on Mountain Head”). This unspoiled hill station is a nature sanctuary that still maintains a no entry zone for polluting vehicles. You can explore in the small hustle bustle of the colorful Matheran market for some local handicrafts and chikki etc. Also hunt around for some local rural delicacies for lunch.

We come to acknowledge the beauty and hidden are the lessons Nature is Teaching us. It's a time where we can leave the stress and the worries of our busy City life and just Relax, De-stress and Detox ourselves.

About an hour’s journey from Panvel station takes us to Dodhani village that will be our base village for this trek. 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 is 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.
