Monsoon special trek to Peb Fort

This monsoon, Wildest wants to take you to one of Maharashtra’s favourite one-day trek, to PEB fort! Peb Fort gets its name from the local goddess ‘Pebi’. The fort is also known as  ‘Vikatgad Fort’. It is one of the many forts near the Matheran range that makes the view from the summit an incredible one, and offers a picturesque view of Malang gad, Tauli Hill and Chanderi fort.

Peb has dramatically sloping sides that are covered in grass during the monsoon season. Charming little trails lead up these slopes, into the misty summit, offering views of the rain clouds coming in from all sides. From the top, you can see far into the distance on a clear day. There are some fairly big streams and pools on your way to the top, so be prepared to get your shoes wet!
