Camping at base of prabalmachi and the next day trek to kalavantindurg was an amazing experience. Mr. Anurag the guide who lead the trek was really amazing, motivating person and made this trek more enjoyable. This trek should be named as Kalavantindurg trek, we just get a view of prabalmachi from kalavantindurg. Overall food and camping arrangement was great. Trek was thrilling experience and the view when we reached at the top was spectacular. The only that could be improved was the transport service from Panvel Station to the base village and same way round. A bus will be more comfortable journey. Overall great experience and had an amazing time.
