It is one of the beautiful points in matheran. need to walk a bit from city point. Unfortunately all the route indications are removed from their location and kept in the corners. So one needs to ask locals to find out these points. But nice place. One shopkeeper keeps a binocular and shows some more points for 50Rs per person.

Alexander Point is on the east side of Matheran. (other famous point like, echo point, Louisa point, sunset point are on the west). It gives different view from the top. You can see beautiful valley and other points like Garbut point, Rambag point from there.

All the points have different hill and valley views. So this is one of them. Good to go by feet and enjoy the walk. It's nice calm place.

From Matheran Market it is only a 15 to 20 minutes walk. Best Point to watch sunrise. At the end of the monsoon the sight is far reaching and on some good days one can see the 30 miles far away windmills in the rising sun.
