It was originally to keep an eye on Panvel- Kalyan forts. This trek is said to be the deadliest because of its steep and slippery slopes.

What Is It?
The trek to Kalavantin Durg is filled with zigzag stairs and steep slopes. It gets more difficult in the rainy season as the edges of the rocky mountains get slippery. As you climb up, the difficulty level increases and it becomes notably steeper. Trekkers must wear shoes with a really good grip and take breaks along the way.
There are options for stay up on the mountain. A lot of trekkers arrange night stay and a two day trek to climb up to the top.

The view from the top is worth all the effort and trekkers usually have the company of a dog along with them as they climb to the top.

The mountains have no in-habitation so one must always go with an experienced trekker. There are numerous spots to see while climbing up and it’s an hour detour to see those spots. There are one or two waterfalls where you can freshen up and continue climbing.
