MATHERAN MONKEYS Matheran monkeys are special and integral part of the ecosystem. Apparently playful, bold and domesticated, they are smart but can be aggressive for food. They will snatch snacks and cold drinks from hands of tourists, particularly children and grab food kept close to window. They can unscrew and open a bottle easily. So, please don't feed monkeys or encourage kids to go close to them. Monkeys come to Matheran Bungalow and we have kept a stuffed tiger toy outside in the compound, to scare them. Always, keep the main grill door of Matheran Bungalow closed. After dark, we don't see the monkeys around as they go back to jungle. So, enjoy the company of matheran monkeys while experiencing your Matheran stay.
