Overview

Trek along the deep ravines and cliffs to Vikatgad. Previously used as a storehouse for storing food grains and ammunition, the fort is now an attraction for day trekkers.

Highlights

  • Vikatgad has some dramatically sloping sides that are covered in the grass during the monsoon season. 
  • Charming little trails lead up to these slopes, into the misty summit.
  • From the top, you can see far into the distance on a clear day.

 

Detailed overview

Vikatgad is a small fort near the ranges of Matheran on the northeast side of Panvel at a distance of 3-4 km on the west side of Neral. It is also known as Peb fort and has an elevation of 2100 ft. Nakhind, Chanderi, Mahasmal, and Prabalgad all can be seen from the Vikatgad fort. Vikatgad has some dramatically sloping sides that are covered in the grass during the monsoon season. Charming little trails lead up these slopes, into the misty summit, offering views of the rain clouds coming in from all sides. From the top, you can see far into the distance on a clear day. There are some fairly big streams and pools on your way to the top, so be prepared to get your shoes wet. It is one of the favourite destinations for one day trekkers, the forest dept. and local villagers are doing plantation and some restoration works on the fort.
