The Garbett point is one of the most popular points among Matheran. The trekking route of Garbett to Matheran very famous for adventure lovers. The trek is a bit longer and requires a little patience to accomplish. It starts at Diksal village. After walking for 5 minutes one can see a huge manmade lake. Visitors need to walk along the perimeter of the lake and cross a fast-moving stream. The fields and the mountains are lush green with waterfalls all around. After crossing the stream, trekkers need to climb a steep hillock till a nearby village. After a short steep climb from the village, one will reach the narrow Garbett plateau, which offers a panoramic view of the valley on both sides. From this plateau, a short steep ascends will lead to the Garbett Point. The path is very narrow and on one side there is a sheer drop of some thousand odd feet into the valley. From this point, the 5 km long trail will lead to Matheran. The entire trail takes about 6 to 8 hours.
