Welcome to Matheran Hill Station
Trek mates from left Navin, Sampada, Vishal, Azeem, myself, Musarrat, Shubhangi who joined on the sudden plan for one day trekking to Matheran. It is totally impossible to cover the whole hill Station points in one day as no vehicle is allowed after Matheran Station entry either you need to take horse ride to cover all the points.

We started from Pune on 14th September 2014 at around 7.30am due to the delay by the cab driver and reached Karjat chowk at around 10:30am and stopped for wada pav breakfast.
