Event Details

Kalavantin Fort is famed as the ‘Climb to Heaven’, owing to its dangerous nature and the bird’s eye view of the immense beauty that waits atop. The trek to the top of the Kalavantin Durg is considered one of the most challenging ones in the Western Ghats. The route to the Kalavantin top is a roughly 60 degree incline, and involves climbing rock-cut steps that are as high as two feet. There is a series of steps leading to the top of the pinnacle, but little is known about the history of structure. According to local guides, it was built for a queen called Kalavantin in the 15th century, around the same time as the neighbouring Prabalgad. This Fort is offering gorgeous views and abundant beauty via rugged terrain with narrow rock-cut steps, steep slopes and no support whatsoever, the trek to and from the fortress is dangerous yet thrilling.
