This lovely little getaway is one place where you will always find ample parking…for your horse! With a strict no-car policy, there’s little wonder that Matheran boasts of clean air. If you’re a nature lover, make sure you head to Panorama Point that – true to its name – provides a 360-degree view of the hill station. It is a perfect respite during this time of the year since its elevation (2,625 feet) ensures that it never gets too hot or humid. There are plenty of hotels and homestays to choose from, but book in advance since it’s a popular destination owing to the connectivity from many metro cities.
