Matheran: Forest on head

It was our marriage anniversary and my husband gave me a surprise by planning a trip to Matheran, a beautiful place with all greenery everywhere. Matheran means Forest on head (Mathe= Head; Raan= Forest). As usual we wake up early in the morning and packed our bags and were so excited to move on our bike. It was a journey of about 3 hours. But we biked leisurely and took our own time of 6 hours...:) We started at 5.30 in the morning. It was all dark everywhere and I was looking in the sky, sitting on the backside. I was thrilled to see a white spot moving in the sky. I asked my husband to look to it and then that white spot started turning yellow and that too very bright. It took almost 5 sec to see that white spot turning into a shooting star...Oh my god!!!!! Amazing!!!!! That was the most beautiful start of my morning....That was the most clear shooting star we both would have ever seen. Quickly, I asked for a wish and we again started.

At around 11.30, we reached there and parked our bike. It was around 5 kms of walk, since Matheran is a "No-Vehicle" zone. There are other modes of transportation i.e Horses and man-cart. We opted to walk. We were in no hurry as we wanted to admire the nature. At last, our hotel came and we rested for few minutes and after having lunch moved to see few places around. They were also at walking distance. Some of them were Echo-point, Honeymoon point, Mumbai Point,Malang Point, Louisa Point, Sunset-point, Charlote Lake and Myra Point.

It was fantastic experience to see sun-set from such a height. Next morning, we moved to our place, recollecting our sweet moments of life.....

I have been to Matheran in the past. It's such a wonderful place. The word "wonderful" is as literal as the word "Matheran". It's really a wonder.

One more thing... you just have to check-out your shoes on your return.
