From this point into the town center, either a trek on foot or on horse-back or by hand pulled rickshaws, as no motor vehicles are allowed within the hill-station area. 

By Rail        
It is well connected by rail again both, from Bombay & Pune upto Neral - a station at the bottom of the hill and then by a toy train winding it's way up the hill on a single meter gauge, through jungle paths and cutting through mountain sides and tunnels, giving a breathtaking view of the valley below and the city left behind.
