Dune Barr House – Verandah In The ForestI wish to book now!
I wish to request a transfer!
Guests are advised to reach Dasturi well before the sunset to relish the jungle and to truly enjoy their arrival at Dune Barr House.
The closest International airport is Mumbai.
Mumbai to Dasturi Car park is two and half hours by road. The car park is 4.5 kms away from the hotel. You have to pay for parking and for a ticket to enter Matheran Reserve Forest.
You can take the Mumbai-Pune express trains to Neral Junction (check the schedule as not all of them stop at Neral). You can then take the 107 year old heritage Toy train from Dasturi car park to Matheran station. Then you are 10 mn walk away from the hotel.
WHAT TO BRING:
Short pants, short-sleeved shirts, hats, sunscreen, mosquito repellent, tennis shoes, torches and swimwear.
Located at an altitude of 800 meters above sea level, Matheran enjoys a cool and pleasant climate throughout the year. So, the hill station receives tourists all round the calendar.
Matheran in Summer (March – June) Matheran experiences moderate climate in summer though the maximum temperature may reach around 35 degrees Celsius in June-July. Thus, Matheran is a favourable destination for trekking in summers.
Matheran in Monsoon (July – September) Matheran receives high rainfall in the months of July-August. The rains restore the hills to its natural shade and add life to its seasonal waterfalls. However, the rains do not allow any adventure activities in this season.
Matheran in Winter (October – February) Though the winter temperature in Matheran can drop as low as 10 degrees Celsius, the overall weather, equipped with warm days and chilly nights, is quite enjoyable which attracts the maximum number of tourists in this season. This is also the perfect season for adventurers.
