VRangers Trek to Dhodhani-Matheran via sunset point on 22nd sept 2013

Matheran is a very famous hill station and a popular weekend gets a way for the Mumbaiites. There are many different hiking routes to reach the top. The most common is one by the motorable road from Neral, which can get very monotonous. Some other routes are via Peb Fort, via one tree hill...

Sunset point is one of the most famous points of matheran. Even though a name of sunset point it gives a most scenic view of vertical series of waterfalls at morning time in rainy season.

Garbett point route is relatively lesser known. It takes us through some breathtaking scenery, green farmlands, a lake, a plateau. The view from the plateau is magnificent!
