 99hikers welcomes you to easy monsoon trek to Peb Fort

Date:- 1 July’18

Cost - Rs 500/- per person 


About fort Peb is very close to famous hill station - Matheran. Located in the same mountain range as Matheran, 4 Km on west side of Neral on Mumbai - Pune highway, Peb fort is a enjoyable trek for a day’s outing. 
The fort derives it name from the Goddess 'Pebi'; Peb is also called 'Vikatgad' for its supposed shape of the Elephant Headed God, 'Ganesh'. The trek to the top involves surmounting a small rock patch and a ladder. The fort is famous for its caves which are maintained by disciples of Swami Samartha and the meditation chambers carved out from the rock inside the mountain. To get inside the meditation chamber, one has to crawl through a narrow passage in the rock and then climb down into the meditation chamber. 

HISTORY 
It is assumed that this fort derived its name Peb from the ‘Goddess Pebi’ at the base of the fort. Historical references clearly indicate that ShivajiMaharaj used the caves on the fort as silos for grain storage.
