Trek to Peb Fort and Matheran. Its a weekend getaway from Mumbai or Pune (Maharashtra).
Best time to trek this area is immediately after monsoon or at the end of monsoon to experience lush green mountains, flowing water, fresh air and friendly sun.
Reach Neral station by various available transport facilities. We traveled from Mumbai on our bikes and parked at a hotel on pay & park basis.
From the base to Peb fort it takes around 4 hrs taking sufficient breaks and stops for eating and resting. Then 4 hrs more from the top to Matheran.
Type : Hill forts
Fort Range : Karjat
District : Raigad
Grade : Medium
Fort Peb is situated on northeast side of Panvel, on Mumbai-Pune road, at a distance of 3-4 km on west side of Neral. To avoid crowd at hill stations like Matheran, nature lovers must visit the nearby fort Peb. This is the most beautiful one-day trek.
One would find Peb similar to Gorakhgad in terms of the time required to climb the fort, ways towards the fort, the cave and the surrounding nature. But there is a dense forest on the way to the fort Peb. Nowadays deforestation has reduced it a lot. The fort is also named as ‘VikatGad’.
