We @ ???? ??? , have decided to UP the adrenaline dosage by organizing a Moonlight Trek to Kalavantin Fort on occasion of KOJAGIRI POURNIMA-1 i.e on Friday-saturday 23-24 October 2010
The fort of Kalavantin was used as a watch tower and is located right next to Prabhalgad 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.
