The picturesque hill station of Matheran near Pune is a must visit place while you are in Pune or Mumbai. The natural beauty and landscapes of the place are breathtaking and soothing. The unpolluted hill station where no vehicles are allowed is a place where you can sit back and relax for few days. The best thing about the hill station which is my favorite too is the “Toy Train”. The toy train of Matheran is one amongst the four historic Toy trains of India. The other three being in Shimla, Ooty and Darjeeling.
