About Porcupine Point

Nuzzled cozily in the heart of Matheran, Porcupine Point, also known as the Sunset Point, gets its name after its geographical silhouette resembling the shape of a Porcupine bird. Blessed with lush evergreen vegetation and mesmerizing views of the gorgeous base valley, this elevated spot is a highly frequented destination. The vantage point offers beautiful glimpses of the surrounding landscapes but is predominantly famous for the marvelous view of the retreating sun. Witness the bright sun receding against the saffron azure backdrop and forming a pageant of chrome tint in the empyrean sky. Such magnanimous vistas are meant to be cherished forever. From here, one can even spot the Imperial Cathedral Rocks positioned to the west of the Sunset Point. Also, do not miss capturing the majestic view of the distant Prabalgad Fort.
