Dear Friends we invite you all for Camping at Prabalmachi with Mumbairangers on 17 Dec 2016 Leaving Saturday Evening
The village of Prabalmachi is the ‘base camp’ for a trek up the Prabalgad / Kalavantin Durg Fort.
Kalavantin is a 500m high pinnacle on the northern edge of the Prabal plateau. It is located near the Machi and Vajepur villages. Prabalgad Fort is located between Matheran and Panvel in the Indian state of Maharashtra, at an elevation of 2300 feet in the Western Ghats. It was built on a plateau very close to Matheran, but unlike Matheran it does not have a good source of water. It was known as Muranjan until it was taken over and renamed by the Maratha forces under Shivaji’s rule. The fort contains a temple to Ganesh and some stone ruins. Its sister fort is Irshalgad. The Ulahas River runs to the east of the fort. The Gadhi River, and the Chanderi and Peb forts are to the west. To the south is the Patalganga River, and Manikgad and to the north is the Karnala fort.
