Hi,

Honestly wheelchairs will be no use in Matheran because the roads are not paved. However, one cause rickshaw pulled by men for moving around in the town and there are plenty of them available. You can strike a deal with somebody on a day-charge-basis.

Do not attempt to go, if you have somebody who needs wheelchair. Basically there are no roads per say. There are difficult to walk pavements. Many people take horses to roam around.

Matheran does not have Tar road. You will find village like red soil road all around..So it will be difficult for you to move around at various sightseeing points with wheel chair. However, with the help of pulled cart, such visit Dr can reach hotel from Enterance of Matheran city. HE or SHE may confine to Hotel...area
