Located in the state of Maharashtra, Matheran is a quaint hill station famous for its scenic beauty. An eco-sensitive destination, it is the only automobile-free hill station in the continent. One of the most popular spots in this hill station is the Echo Point. As the name suggests, this photogenic point is famous for the reverberations and echoes it generates. In addition to this phenomenon, this destination is also famous for its natural virgin beauty.
Engulfed in a fluffy blanket of cotton clouds, the Echo Point of Matheran is an unlikely physics lesson with its real life illustrations of the acoustics of echoing. The hilltop also gives a bird's eye view of the entire region which is a sight for sore eyes. Carpeted with a blanket of green grass, the mountains of Sahyadri are a sight to behold.
This destination is also a food lover's delight, as various stall and small shops provide delicious local Maharashtrian delicacies at reasonable prices. With its pleasant weather and spotlessly clean surroundings, Echo Point is the perfect weekend getaway.
