Some of the best places to visit in Matheran are, Prabal Fort, situated at the crest of the Prabal Hills. It is believed that the fort had two gateways and eleven towers. Unfriendly fights in 1818 destroyed these gateways, and presently only four towers remain. Surrounded by astonishing landscapes, this is a heritage site and one of the popular tourist attractions of the region. One can watch this fort from many viewpoints of Matheran along with Little Chowk and Louisa Points.
