About Matheran-

Matheran is a hill station in Karjat Tahsil and is also the smallest hill station in India. Matheran, which means “forest on the forehead”, is an eco-sensitive region declared by the Ministry of Environment and Forest- Government of India. It is Asia’s only automobile-free hill station.
