Matheran – A pristine beauty!

Recently #familyonthewheels (#FOTW) planned a quick monsoon getaway for 5 days to really natural places in Maharashtra. One of the most scintillating places we encountered was Matheran, amongst all. Its untouched beauty, no civilization and the jungle in its pristine form was breathtaking. Sometimes, we need to have these moments with the nature to unwind our soul.

But reaching Matheran for us was no more than an adventure itself. As such, we feel that God plans some extra adventure for we – “The Family wanderlust”.

Reaching Matheran

Let me brief you that – Matheran is Continue Reading
