Prabalgad Night Trek

Hike for the Twilight Panorama

Prabalgad Fort is located between Matheran and Panvel at an elevation of 2,300 feet. It was built at the pinnacle of the rocky plateau very close to Matheran. Previously, the fort was known as Muranajan and renamed by the Maratha forces under the rule of Chhatrapati Shivaji.

There is a dense forest on the way till the top of fort Prabal. This fort can be approached via steep climb of a waterfall route (water flows only during monsoon).
