Mahabaleshwar is the source of the Krishna River that flows across Maharashtra, Karnataka, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. The legendary source of the river is a spout from the mouth of a statue of a cow in the ancient temple of Mahadev in Old Mahabaleshwar. Legend has it that Krishna is Lord Vishnu himself as a result of a curse on the trimurtis by Savitri. Also, its tributaries Venna and Koyna are said to be Lord Shiva and Lord Brahma themselves. An interesting thing to notice is that 4 other rivers come out from the cow's mouth apart from Krishna and they all travel some distance before merging into Krishna. These rivers are the Koyna, Venna (Veni), Savitri, and Gayatri. Climate of the area is suitable for cultivation of strawberries, Mahabaleshwar strawberry contributes to about 85 percent of the total strawberry production in the country. Mahabaleshwar along with Panchgani makes the most popular hill resorts in the Maharashtra state of India. Far way from the madding crowds the hill resort makes an excellent holiday destination. The natural beauty of Mahabaleshwar attracts nature lovers, film directors, holidaymakers, peace seekers and adventurers alike.

I had gone to Matheran for a day trip. On the way back I saw a short queue for tickets of the Matheran - Neral train so I decided to wait for it. I bought a ticket to Neral. I then waited for the train to come into the station. It was the 12:50 pm service to Neral. It departed from Matheran at 1:10 pm, twenty minutes late. After a brief halt at Aman Lodge station, we began the treacherous descent down the ghat. We went from the forest of Matheran to the mountainside with breathtaking views of the valley. We curved beautifully under the northern tip of Matheran and then continued down the other side of the mountain. After going over two level crossings, we arrived at Water Pipe station. There vendors were selling Vada Pav, Raw Mango and Frooti. After five minutes we departed and continued the descent. Throughout the journey you can see the railway staff standing between coaches. They manually control the hand-brakes on each coach to make sure the train doesn't roll faster and faster down the ghat. They have a very crucial and dangerous job. After a little while, we reached Jummapatti station where we halted for ten minutes. We honked and departed with a jerk as we started the final leg of our journey down to Neral. We went round the massive curves and finally came down to sea level. We crossed an express train on the mainline before finally pulling into Neral at 3:15 pm, two hours since departure. The lovely scenic journey had finally come to an end. Sit back and watch the entire video. Enjoy the honking and clanging of the train as it makes its way down the mountain.

The breathtaking 38 look out points designated at Matheran are each abundant with natural beauty. There is also apanorama view that gives a complete 360° view of scenery with a splendid view of sunrise and sunset and the habitation of Neral town. Adventure seekers can try valley crossing by a zip line ride and enjoy the views along with adrenaline rush. Charlotte Lake, Monkey point, Heart point, Echo point and One Tree Hill are among the famous viewpoints here. A happy heart and refreshed mind are the best memoirs of this place to take back home.
