Treks and Trails India - Kalavantin Durg Trek - 18th June 2017

 

 

Kalavantin Durg was used as a watch tower and is located right next to Prabalgad 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.
