Treks and Trails India - One Day Trek to Kalavantin Durg 19 July 2015 Sunday
Height: 2000ft approx
Grade: Medium – Thrilling
Base Village: Thakurwadi
Contribution: 400.00 per person
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 one of the blogs.
