Scenes from the Matheran Mountains or Ghat

These photographs are of the Matheran mountain pass, called the Matheran Ghat in India. The word "Ghat" has been absorbed into English and one of its English meanings is mountain pass. It means the same in Indian languages like Marathi.

The Matheran Ghat is steep and picturesque and leads to the hill station of Matheran located between Pune and Mumbai.

This last photograph was shot through the windscreen of the car. Here you can see the black volcanic rocks typical of the Deccan region in Maharashtra.
