A petit hill station located on the mountains of the Sahyadri ranges; Matheran is the ideal place to visit for the love birds and nature lovers. The place is renowned for its natural beauty and spectacular scenery. One of the most magnificent peaks to visit in Matheran is Echo Point. Covered with lush green carpet and light weighted clouds, it is the perfect vantage point to view the mesmerising peaks of the western ghats, and also get delighted with the reverberations and echoes. And this is how the point gets its name as Echo point.
Being perched at the top of the hill, it becomes the paradise for the adventure lovers by providing with the opportunities of dwelling into various adventure sport activities like rope climbing and zip lining. During monsoon, the chattering waterfalls making their way down the hills make for an enchanting sight to behold. This is why, the months from July to February is considered to be the best time to visit this place which is blessed with such precious nature’s treasure and spotless charm. And the small food stalls serving scrumptious Maharashtrian tid bits at a very reasonable price, is something that cannot be missed by the visitors.
One can either walk or opt for a horseback to reach the Echo Point. The closest landmark will be the Matheran market, which is hardly 30 kilometers away.
