Dodhani is situated very close to Panvel city at Navi Mumbai. It is at the foothills of the famous Matheran Hill station. This is the place from where the trekking starts for Matheran. It is totally a small village, where the only activity is farming. There is dam nearby from where you can watch the nature’s beauty at 360 degree. In monsoon season, there are waterfalls from the Matheran Hills. It can be watched from the village. It later forms the shape of a small river. So, for those who like to watch virgin natural beauty it really an ideal place to visit. From Nere to Dodhani, much development has not yet reached though it is very close to Mumbai. Many birds are also humming around the area. State bus service is available from Panvel ST Depot and the last stop is Dhodhani Village. After Nere, there is no modern facilities available. There is a tiny shop available at the Dhodhani Village where bare minimum items like water bottle etc.are available. So it is better to keep some eatables with us.
Only road transport is available from Panvel to Dodhani which is about 22 kms and may take about 50 minutes. Part of the Matheran road is highway, but after the Dam, the road is narrow till the village.
