Kalavantin Durg Trek, Panvel (23 December 2016)

Kalavantin Durg, is situated just opposite to the Prabalgad Fort between Matheran and Panvel. Kalavantin Pinnacle trek is divided into two patches, first is uphill terrain till Prabalmachi where the trek route is divided for Kalavantin durg and Prabalgad. The second patch for Kalavantin hike is vertiginous, as the rock cut steps are very steep and is the only way to climb the Kalavantin Pinnacle. There are no railings or support while ascending or descending the durg and thus makes it the hardest part of trek. (source)
