Kalavantin cha buruj

Kalavantin cha buruj was a pinnacle to keep watch on adjacent area. Prabalgad and Kalavantin buruj are standing next to each other. The peculiarity of this pinnacle is rocky staircases till the top.

How to reach there: Pune - Panvel(Old Pune-Mumbai highway NH 4) - from Shedung phata turn right to Thakurwadi (Base village)
Trek starts from Thakurwadi. You need to reach Prabalmachi first. From the machi, right way goes to Prabalgad and route going towards col in between goes to Kalavantin.

  1. Dear Tourist,

    Machi Prabal is an ancient and beautiful village. It is situated half-way up a mountain (such a plateau or ledge is called a "machi" in Marathi) at the base of the fort Prabalgad. Because of the two forts Prabalgad and Kalavantin and the natural beauty of the surrounding regions, many visitors and fort-enthusiasts are attracted to this place.

    To fully explore this area, you will need at least two days. However, many visitors have had some difficulty in finding food and lodging near this village. Some visitors would return home after one day tour and others would spend the night sleeping outdoors on the grass and eating whatever they could bring or manage to obtain. It is also hard for ladies and children to stay here comfortably.

    In order to provide a solution to this problem, the Bhutambare family has started a Kalavantin Durg & Prabalgad Dharshan Guide, Lodging& Food Service to help visitors. We provide you a tour package including every service you would require. The Bhutambare family provides these services using their own home as the base of operations.

    Suggestions and feedback about the services provided by this venture are most welcome. Your suggestions will help us improve the service experience that we provide to other tourists like you.
