Treks and Trails is going for a one day trek to Kalawantin durg 05 July 2014 Saturday.
Kalawantin durg was used as a watch tower and is located right next to Prabhalgad fort on the old Mumbai-Pune route. The beauty of this trek is the amazing rock cut steps that zig-zag their way up the mountain to take you to the top of the fort. One can get a panoramic view from the top, not to mention the thrill of an exposed climb via the stairs. Also listed as The 33 Most Beautiful Abandoned Places In The World: https://imgur.com/a/D9iDC
