Hi,
You cant go directly to matheran from train. You have to take a cab from neral station they might cost you 75/-rs per seat. They will drop you at one point beyond which no vehicles are allowed to enter. From that point you have to go by walking which is approximately 1.5 kms. Matheran is very small to roam around you can get good hotels as soon as you enter this hill station. Lots of advertisments in local news papers for the same. 1 day will be very much hectic i think 2 to 3 days are enough to cover the beauty.

Right now the train service between Neral and Matheran is suspended for the monsoons. You will have to check when it resumes. Alternately take a share cab from Neral station upto Dasturi Naka beyond which vehicles are not permitted. From here you will have to walk, rent a pony or a hand riksha to get to your hotel.

1 day is OK if its one whole day, but you will enjoy Matheran best with a 3 day stay. There are several forested trails leading to various view points. These are all well marked out and you will not need a guide. You can also engage a horse to take you to several of these points, if you do not wish to walk, but walking is really the best way to enjoy Matheran.

Most hotels include meals, otherwise Diwadkars at the station, offers an excellent Maharashtrian cum Punjabi thali.

Pune - Mumbai express train (get down @ Karjat)

Then Local train from Karjat - VT - get down @ Neral (2nd station from Karjat)

I think Single braod train are there, which travel from neral - matheran. Very affordable. n enjoyable.

u need atleast 2 days.

About hotels. it will be available or try to go through this website http://www.maharashtratourism.gov.in/index/index.aspx

Travel Tips for Pune

FOR AN AROMATIC WHIFF OF SOUTHERN INDIA

by Siddha3th about THE COFFEE HOUSE

Spicy, saucy, saffron-tinged food... whipped up in a jiffy. The Coffee House is famed for its authentic take on South Indian food, and that's no mean achievement - seeing as how food from that region varies wildly from the ubiquitous paper masala dosa to perennial favourites like the wada sambar and uthappa. The accent is on a redolent, spice-laden culinary experience that's as much about aroma as it is about taste.

Situated in a happily bustling part of the city, The Coffee House is never found wanting for patrons. The place has enjoyed a facelift or two over the years, but its soul has remained pretty much intact. A happy, unfussy sorta' vibe that extends upto a second level as well, where you can partake of more 'serious' dining of the Chinese and Continental variety. Done with a most delicious meal, don't forget to stop off for some ice-cream at the parlour set up just outside :) Dosas! Crisp on the fringes, and softer towards the center. Accompanied by bowls of hot sambhar, and a heavenly white coconut chutney. Lip-smackingly unforgettable!
