Picturesque lake and beautiful path

The way to Charlotte lake is beautiful one and gives the feeling of walking amidst the forest. The view of lake is beautiful and candid panorama shots can be taken. Some tea and snack stalls are also there near lake. Although be aware of monkeys. Lake is a must visit during monsoon and try to walk down to the lake instead of taking horse ride. The way to lake has its own fun. Overall it is a must visit in Matheran.

The journey to the lake.

So my friends if you think you are crazy enough or adventureous enough so visit this place after sunset in rainy season. You must be thinking why rainy season .. I said rainy season because you wont find anyone on your way during rainy season. And why during night because you will love the journey towards this lake .. The horrifying sounds the horrifying path .. But if you want to be adventures my friends please go alone .. And the view of the lake is just average but the path is good and something I wanna add "yes there is also path to Matheran market if you go forward from the lake " ., no need to return back .. Just straight towrds your journey.

Big Lake

This lake is very big and nicely located in Matheran. The place is very muddy during monsoon. But it is really worth to come here in this season. The place offers a very beautiful view of the green trees and cool lake. This lake is not for boating. Only viewing is allowed. There is a small dam here built to save the water of this lake.

Big Lake

This lake is really big in Matheran. There is a small dam built on this lake. There are lush green trees to shade the area. This place is quite different during the monsoon. The hilly and soil area is all wet and smells awesome. Cool lake.

Beautiful Lake

The lake is very beautiful covered with little mist over it and the adjoining mountains in the monsoons. Looks like kind of a forbidden land as told to us during childhood stories. During rains the water becomes buddy and there are tree that surround the lake which provides beautiful scenes for taking pictures and photos. The lake has a proper pathway built along its side to cross it and here you take beautiful pictures. The lake overflows in heavy rains and a little waterfall shoots out below the pathway or bridge and starts a rivulet. You can go enjoy in that waterfall and the pool thus created. Its a total fun deal. Enjoy the hot spicy vadapav, chai and other snacks from local vendors in the chilly weather.

Feels like just a Dam

Since we had visited it during Monsoon, it was filed up with water (obviously). There's nothing much to do apart from having fun in water, not in the lake but next to it there's a spot from where excess water flows out. Only over there it's suitable.Apart from this there's a adventure sport where you go from one side to another via rope, I guess it's zip line?

Charlotte Lake - Panoramic view

This is a must see in Matheran for its scenery and greenery. I have heard water gets supplied to the hill station from this lake. One of the most popular place of Matheran visit.
