Peb Fort Details
Peb fort or Vikatgad fort is a small hill fort near Matheran falling under Karjat Taluka, Raigad District. Vikatgad Trek or Peb Trek is the best during monsoon as you witness vivid shades of green all around you. The view from Peb Fort is stunning. See the sights of nearby hills and mountains playing the game of hiding and seek with the Sun as the Clouds come to their rescue. Nearby forts such as Nakhind, Chanderi, Mahasmal, Prabalgad, Kalavantin Durg are prominently seen from the top of Peb Fort. Also, one can take the darshan of Datta Padukas carved in stone and Lord Shiva, Ganesha & Hanuman in a Temple at the top. We descend Vikatgad through the rail routes on Matheran side enjoying the scenes of Mountains again.
