Midway through the trail near the end of the thick forest, you come across a mass of boulders and rocks into which the trail disappears. This is known as Shivaji Steps or the Shivaji Ladder. According to local legend, Shivaji rode up this route on horseback. From here, it’s 500m to the top, up a stream bed that’s dry except during the monsoon. British-style architecture has been preserved in Matheran and most structures are now heritage structures. Matheran is referred to as ‘paradise’ by locals there.
