We’re happy to share & introducing a unique concept for a healthy lifestyle called “fitness trekking”!
Spend your Sundays not running on a stationary tredmill in a boring gym or binge eating while lying
around like a couch potato. Instead, join us for Medium level monsoon treks in the backdrop of
picturesque locations of cloud covered mountains! Each trek is bound to burn 1000+ calories!
Prabalgad, also known as, Muranjan, was originally going to be converted into a hill station. But due
to lack of water, the British shifted their plan to Matheran.
From the base village, the view is serene, the meadows look attractive and the sudden drop of the
valley with it’s distinctive “V” shape surprises one with its splendid views.
Climb upwards, going through the semi - steep crust where streams run parallel. Walk through the
dense forests under heavy rains, and then in the end the whole place open up to the spectacular
views of the twin fort, a geological wonder called Kalvantin Durg. Shout out to the fellow trekkers
standing on the other side or simply sit and bask in the glory of a Sunday well spent.
