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 to 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.

ट्रेक एकदम चांगला झाला. वेळेचं अगदी काटेकोरपणे नियोजन पार पडलं. भर उन्हात पटापट खाली उतरलो व रात्री चढलो, ह्यामुळे दमछाक बिलकुल झाली नाही. जेवणं साधं आणि उत्कृष्ट होतं. येताना फक्त bus मध्ये bluetooth वर जोरात गाणी नाही लावता आली. 😄 Next time.
