Tattva Adventure’s Night trek to Peb (Vikat) Gad to Matheran On Saturday 21st May 2016
Some Information about the fort:
Height: 2100 Feet above MSL (Approx)
Peb fort derives its name from the Goddess ‘Pebi’. It is also called Vikatgad
because its pinnacle is supposedly in the shape of the Elephant headed god – Ganesha.
The fort lies in the Matheran range itself and is adjacent to Matheran. It is an amazing
trek with the small rock patch and a ladder.
The fort also has a temple dedicated to Swami Samartha on the top and has the footwear or ‘Padukas’
worn by the great saint kept on the top. The view of the entire Neral and Karjat region from the top
is worth the climb. Another attraction of the trek is the only standing Bastion or Buruj facing the Panorama
point of Matheran, the view from here is just too beautiful to describe.
