AS

Abhishek Surve

simple and easy to reach matheran, catch train going to Neral from any central railway station like csmt, dadar, thane, kalyan to "NERAL". From Neral station do a cab or share cab to matheran. once you reach matheran you can walk to hotel or get a ride of pony/ horse to hotel. trekking will be better as no vehicles allowed inside matheran. so better Walk till your hotel or just get a horse pull.

Hi, We had tried Hotel Rasna just opposite Madhavji point in the market. It has gujarati thali, which was fine. Or you can try hotel divakar behind Matheran Rly station which is also good.
