Grade: Medium

Prabalgad fort, earlier known as Muranjan, was built to watch over the Kalyan forts and Panvel forts. Trek to Prabalgad is a moderate one, with promising views after some effort. Adventurists will love to witness the sunrise amid a panorama of a number of peaks from the top of Prabalgad fort, including Kalavantin Durg, Matheran, Malanggad and Vikatgad.

About the place

Prabalgad could have been as famous as Matheran, if only it had a reliable water source. It is said that when British developed Matheran as a hill station, Prabalgad was under consideration too! The Prabalgad fort, which has seen one ruler after another fight for its possession, now sits peacefully in ruins, reclaimed by nature.
