Prabalgad Trek


Type: Hill Fort
Height: 2320 Feet above MSL (Approx)
Grade: Medium
Base Village: Thakurwadi
Region: Panvel

Prabalgad is located near Panvel Taluka, Raigad Distict. It is 65 kms and 110 kms away from Mumbai & Pune respectively. The trek to Prabalgad is moreover of a Jungle Trail. After a decent ascend for about 2 hours we reach the base of Prabalgad. This place is famously known as Prabal Machi. It provides a decent view of the valley and NH4. It provides good shelter for a trekker as the villagers are eager to offer food and other services with nominal charges.

From Prabal Machi the climb to Prabalgad is through a waterfall. One has to be very careful climbing during monsoon. From Prabal Machi the trek is of steep ascend and it takes 2 hours to reach the top of Prabalgad. If the view is clear, one can have a good look of the Vashi Creek as well from the top. One can also view Kalavantin, Karnala, Irshalgad and Matheran Range which are closely connected.

The history of the fort is pretty unclear. But this fort was being exchanged many times between the Mughals and Marathas, as it is a strategic point to keep watch over the Kalyan Bhiwandi region.
