We have arranged Vikatgad (Peb) fort on 8th November 2015.   Trek Details : Type : Hill Fort Height : 2100 Feet above MSL (Approx) Grade : Medium District : Raigad Region : Karjat Base Village : Neral   Some details about Peb Fort :Located in the same mountain range as Matheran, Peb fort is a enjoyable trek for a day's outing.   The fort derives it name from the Goddess 'Pebi'; Peb is also called 'Vikatgad' for its supposed shape of the Elephant Headed God, 'Ganesh'. The trek to the top involves surmounting a small rock patch and a ladder. The fort is famous for its caves which are maintained by disciples of Swami Samartha and the meditation chambers carved out from the rock inside the mountain. To get inside the meditation chamber, one has to crawl through a narrow passage in the rock and then climb down into the meditation chamber. The chamber is very well maintained with tiles on the floor for ppl to sit and meditate.   The fort also has a temple dedicated to Swami Samartha on the top and has the footwear or 'Padukas' worn by the great saint kept on the top. The view of the entire Neral and Karjat region from the top is worth the climb. Another attraction of the trek is the only standing Bastion or Buruj facing the Panorama point of Matheran, the view from here is just too beautiful to describe.   The tentative itinerary for the Trek is as given below:   8t November 2015, Sunday   We will be starting with the CST - Karjat Fast Local (Time table given below)   People may board the same Karjat train from the station of their convenience and meet us in the train directly.
