About Vikatgad Fort Trek :
Fort Peb, also known as Vikatgad is situated at a distance of 3-4 km on west side of Neral. This is one of the most beautiful one day treks near Mumbai, especially in monsoon. To avoid crowd at hill stations like Matheran, nature lovers must visit this fort. The fort derives it name from the Goddess ‘Pebi’; The fort is also named as ‘VikatGad’ for its supposed shape of the Elephant Headed God, ‘Ganesh’. Historical references clearly indicate that Shivaji Maharaj used the caves on the fort as silos for grain storage.
