Sometimes places which are nearby are often underestimated by us, Matheran is one such place. We absolutely loved everything about Matheran and exceeded my expectation.

We visited in December. Cost of hotels increase by 30 to 40 percent in December. Even November last week prices are quite reasonable so plan accordingly.

We took a local train to Nerul station. Unfortunately being a weekend toy trains were full and people were waiting in line for 3–4 hours to get the tickets. Each toy train gives only 120 tickets and each person standing in the Que can take max 4 tickets. So we were left with the option of using a share cab till Aman Logde Railway station. It costed us 80 rs per seat which is fixed.

From Aman Lodge railway station it takes 15 mins by toy train to reach matheran or 1 hour walk along the tracks. Trains have a frequency of once every 1 to 1.5 hours. We walked down..and enjoyed the mini shops and eateries around the tracks as we missed the train and would have to wait for 1.5 hours for the next train. But walking is also enjoyable.
