Matheran, a picturesque, unspoilt hill station at an altitude of 800 metres is cloaked in green. Matheran remains quiet and unpolluted, so far removed from the maddening chaos of big cities largely because no vehicles are allowed within the town.

Bhandardara - There are many charming and little-known hill stations in the Western Ghats, but perhaps none as unpretentious as the little hill-station called Bhandardara in Maharashtra.

Amboli - If you are looking for peace and solitude, Amboli is the answer - a tranquil hill station on the Western Ghats, surrounded by thick forests and tree canopied hills.
