The panoramic view of the Matheran range from the top
The unique location of the hill affords it a panoramic view of the entire Matheran range. A temple has been constructed at the top of the fort and is believed to shelter the footprints of Swami Samarth. Be aware of the monkeys though. If you can brave them, a splendid sight awaits you!
The Challenging Trail To The Top
One of the fascinating features of the fort is the unique narrow approach to the top. If you are climbing it from the North, then a easy grade rock patch has to be tackled to reach the top. On the other hand, if you have reached the fort from Matheran end, then a rickety ladder overlooking the deep valley stands between you and the temple!
An opportunity to walk along the lush green Matheran valley
Matheran is home to abundant flora and fauna and there’s no better time to experience it than the monsoon. An opportunity to combine a lovely walk along the Matheran valley with the Peb fort trek, makes it even more alluring!
