Garbett Plateau is one of the most beautiful treks in Matheran. It offers a 360 degree view of the entire Matheran range from the top. Starting from Bhivpuri, the trail alternates between flat and steep patches thereby making it a challenging yet fun trek. A night trek is sure to add thrill to the adventure of making it to the top by sunrise!
About Garbett Point
Situated on the south-west of Matheran, Garbett Point offers a breathtaking view of the range and the lake below. Back in 1850, Hugh Poyntz Malet discovered this place for leisure and relaxation. Windy and breezy, Garbett point is indeed a beautiful destination to hike any time of the year. The plateau can be spotted from the train itself!
