Prabalgad is located between Panvel and Matheran at an elevation of 2,300 feet. It was one of the 23 forts that were handed over to the Mughal Empire by Shivaji Maharaj as per the Treaty of Purandar in 1665. It was later on won back by Shivaji Maharaj. Kalavantin Durg is a small fort located opposite to Prabalgad that was built for a queen named Kalavantin. It was used as a watch tower in the past.
Both the forts can be accessed from Prabalmachi (Prabal Plateau).

FOR FUTURE UPCOMING EVENTS :
Kalavantin Durg ( कलावंतीण दुर्ग ) is also called as Kalavantinicha Sulaka ( pinnacle ) . This fort is actually not a separate fort but it is an extension of prabalgad. Prabalgad lies on the Prabal plateau between Matheran and Panvel and can be seen from the Mumbai-Pune Expressway. I could not shoot complete video of trek due to heavy rain . Some glims should give an idea of this amazing place .
