At a distance of 2 km from Matheran Railway Station, Alexander Point is one of the best places to visit in Matheran. This site is located in Madhavji road on the backdrop of green forests.
Alexander point offers gorgeous views of Palasdari Lake, Rambaug Point, Garbut Point, Chowk Point, downhill village of Borgaon and the winding Ulhas River. It is also a paradise for nature lovers due to its nature and beauty. One can ideally sit here for hours and feel the Mother Nature. The beautiful view of the towers of Bhivpuri Power house is amazing from this cliff. The recently started 1300 feet long zip line from Alexander point to Rambaug point has made already popular Alexander point even more popular.
It will take 20 to 30 minutes to reach the point by walk from the Matheran station. This awesome viewpoint is usually visited early morning for best views.
