Things to Do in Matheran

  • Little Chowk Point

    Little Chowk Point is located towards the southernmost tip of Matheran. The small yet popular spot offers impressive views of the Sahyadri Ranges, Karnala Fort and the beautiful town of Panvel. Besides, one can see the magnificent Vishalgad and Prabal Fort with its verdant surroundings from this viewpoint.

  • Prabal Fort

    Prabal Fort, perched atop the Prabal Hills, is located on the western side of Matheran. This magnificent fort was captured by Chhatrapati Shivaji from the Mughals. Historians believe that there was a treasure hidden inside the fort at the time of its capture. The fort initially had two gateways and eleven towers. However in 1818, these gateways were destroyed in uncongenial fights. At present, one can see only four towers in the fort.

    Surrounded by breathtaking landscapes, this heritage site is a popular tourist attraction of the region. One can see this fort from various viewpoints of Matheran including Little Chowk Point and Louisa Point.
