We arrive at the base of the Kalavantin Durg. Our field experts will provide pre-trek information and instructions to all participants.

02:45 – 05:30
Now we start the trek to the Kalavantin Durg. We need to ascend approximately 1,420 ft. It takes about two and half hours to reach the top from the base.

It takes about two and a half hours to reach the summit from the base.

Trek is divided into two patches, first is uphill terrain till Prabalmachi where the trek route is divided into Kalavantin Durg and Prabalgad. The second patch for the Kalavantin hike is vertiginous, as the rock-cut steps are very steep and the only way to climb the Kalavantin Pinnacle.

There are no railings or support while ascending or descending the Kalavantin Durg and thus making it the hardest part of the trek.

05:30 – 06:30
You can rest on the summit until sunrise.

To the east, the sun will rise behind the mountains, then we will enjoy the view from the top of Kalavantin Durg.

Now we start descending to Prabalmachi village via the same route.

Social Media मुळे कलावंतीण दुर्ग फार कठीण वाटत असे. आपल्याला जमेल की नाही असे वाटायचं. पण आज मनातली भिती गेली तसेच प्रत्यक्ष बघण्याची इच्छा पूर्ण झाली.

विशालने केलेल्या सुचनेनुसार पहाटे किल्ला कधी वर चढून गेलो ते कळलेच नाही. उतरताना ही योग्य माहिती दिल्यामुळे कोणताही त्रास झाला नाही.

गेल्या २ वर्षे तील अनुभवानुसार विशाल अतिशय शांतपणे अनेक विषय हाताळत असतो. कधीही ताण, चिडचिड करत नाही/ दाखवत नाही. त्यामुळे सर्व वयोगटातील लोकांचं SG Weekend Calendar रक्तात भिनलेले दिसते. दर आठवड्याला नविन लोकांना सांभाळून घेणे हे खुप अवघड आहे. गेली ५/६ वर्षे अनेकांना साहसी/गड/किल्ले पर्यटनाचे त्याने चांगलेच वेड लावलेले दिसत आहे.

विशाल आणि प्रथमेशला धन्यवाद🙏🏻🏞️⛺⛰️
