Short Breaks From Mumbai

Matheran: One Of The Best-Kept Secrets Around Mumbai

My first memories of this place are filled with horses and lots of monkeys. Vehicles are not allowed inside, and horses and hand-pulled rickshaws are the only modes of transport. There are several viewpoints dotted in the area, all of which are easily accessible by foot. Though some of them offer gorgeous views, it is best to soak in a few peacefully rather than try to cover each one as part of a packed itinerary.
