Matheran being the highest hill station in India at least I have been to, must say I really enjoyed the Matheran-Neral toy train ride which was around 4hour.

We travelled from Mantheran station to Aman Lodge. Surprisingly, the train was decorated with flowers and bouquets. The tickets are available 45 minutes before the train starts. Tickets are easily available at the counter. Just enjoy the ride with awesome weather and view of mountains.
Very useful mode of travel from the dasturipark to station. Very good entertainment. Seat in the train and enjoy the journey. Beautiful view of the mountains. It's always packed so book I in advance.
