Matheran , situated some 100 kms from Mumbai, has been a favorite weekend gateway of the Mumbaikars ever since its discovery by Hugh Mallet, one time collector of Thane district, in 1850. The hill station located at an elevation of around 800m (2,625 ft) has been declared as an eco sensitive region and has roads that are still not tarred even now. And as most motor vehicles (except emergency vehicles) are banned , the air is very clean and the place very peaceful.The name Matheran means either "forest on top" or "mother forest".

Entry Fee: There is an entry fee of Rs.25 per head which you need to buy to enter Matheran. These tickets ickets are sold at the small ticket window at the entry of the main gate and have a map behind it..
