Peb Fort (Vikatgad)

About Peb Fort:
Peb fort derives its name from the Goddess ‘Pebi’; Peb fort is also called ‘Vikatgad’ for its supposed shape of the Elephant Headed God, ‘Ganesh’. Peb fort trek to the top involves surmounting a small rock patch and a ladder. Peb fort 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. The chamber is very well maintained with tiles on the floor for ppl to sit and meditate. Peb fort also has a temple dedicated to Swami Samartha on the top and has the footwear or ‘Padukas’ worn by the great saint kept on the top. One can view from Peb fort the entire Neral and Karjat region from the top is worth the climb. Another attraction of the Peb fort trek is the only standing Bastion or Buruj facing the Panorama point of Matheran, the view from here is just too beautiful to describe.
