Irshalgad Trek

The Fort is located in between Matheran and Panvel in Maharashtra. It is a sister fort to Prabalgad. The area of the fort is not large but there are several water cisterns cuts from the rock. There is a water tank on the route from Irshal Plateau to the peak. To reach the top of the pinnacle it is essential to have artificial rock climbing equipment. From the top, you can see the forts of Prabalgad, Matheran, Chanderi, Malanggad, Karnala and Manikgad.
