Matheran Experience: For goosebumps & heart-in-mouth experiences, skip the mini train & drive yourself to the top. It's the steepest & narrowest climb. Our drive to Sinhagad Fort (Pune) was a cakewalk.
Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Favourte resort--Byke--heritage.
Minus point- no non-veg food.
Shop for real funky Kolhapuri chappals & leather bags.
Activities & things to do: Horse riding till you are unable to sit & are sore all over.
Try riding at dusk through off beat paths & you will be transferred to a different piece of history.
Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Since there is no mode of transport except horses & your two good feet, its a bit taxing if you have kids or senior citizens. They also provide hand rickhaws.
Kids enjoy mini-train ride but book well in advance.
Watch out for monkeys!!
