Matheran was identified by Hugh Poyntz Malet, the then district collector of Thane district, in May 1850. It was Lord Elphinstone, the then Governor of Bombay, who laid the foundations of the development as a future hill station. The British developed Matheran as a famous location to beat the intense summer heat in the region.

Situated on the top of the Sahyadri ranges, Matheran can be accessed via toy train, horse-back, trekor in a palanquin. it is located on the Western Ghats range at a height of around 800 m (2,625 feet) above sea level. It is at a distance of 90 km from Mumbai, and 120 km from Pune.

Matheran, which means “forest on the forehead” (of the mountains) is an eco-sensitive region, declared by the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Government of India.
