  • Easy one day trek for first timers. Amazing scenic beauty for photography. Camping facility available with food . 400 RS per person. Not recommended in rainy season.
  • Very interesting much easy , better for 1st timers Only last patch of about 100 ft height comprising of big carved steps and some big rocks to crossover are little difficult. This patch is not good to visit alone. The residing villagers are good and provide local food service.
  • In the Western Ghats near Mumbai, at a hefty altitude of 701 metres (2,300 feet) above sea level lies the world’s most dangerous fortress: Kalavantin Durg, which (according to legend) was constructed in honour of a Queen Kalavantin. Offering gorgeous views and abundant beauty – via rugged terrain with narrow rock-cut steps, steep slopes and no support whatsoever – the trek to and from the fortress is dangerous yet thrilling. Kalavantin Fort is famed as the ‘Climb to Heaven’, owing to its dangerous nature and the bird’s eye view of the immense beauty that await atop. This Trek is a memorable experience. There are fewer chances of getting lost as there are direction boards placed at readable height. One can read them and can easily reach to the top. Also there are shop keepers who are very helpful and also help in climbing the summit. The view from the top is mesmerizing. And is worth the hike. Also you can go overnight camping (bookings available online). And home made food is available throughout the day. Have a happy trek.
  • Awesome place to visit. Every trekkers/hikers should try this place. Has entry fee of 50/-, however villagers are helping you to climb last 15feet patch. Also maintenance has been taken care by them like cleaning and helping in case of any emergency. Lots of snacks stalls are there with normal rates which is good part.
  • This place is ideal if you are a novel trekker & want to put yourself in a challenging experience. It is not a long trek but has enough materials to give you thrill & chills. The sunrise at the top spot is a really nice view. Altogether, a recommended one. ✌
