Get ready to enjoy lush green mountains, pouring rain, pleasing breeze and panorama of Sahyadri ranges. Let’s gear up to join ‘Always in Mountains (AIM)’ on yet another venture. . . . . .We are glad to announce a “Trek to Peb Fort” on 3rd October 2010.
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. But there is a dense forest on the way to the fort Peb. The fort is also named as ‘VikatGad’. Historical references clearly indicate that Shivaji Maharaj used the caves on the fort as silos for grain storage. Fascination spots are cave on the fort is occupied by disciples of Swami Samarth, a great saint. The beautiful waterfall on the way is the main attraction here. Surrounding scenery looks marvelous from the cave in the monsoon.
