 Easy Monsoon trek to Peb Fort

Cost - Rs 500/- per person

About fort Peb is very close to famous hill station - Matheran. Located in the same mountain range as Matheran, 4 Km on west side of Neral on Mumbai - Pune highway, Peb fort is a enjoyable trek for a days outing.
The fort derives it name from the Goddess 'Pebi'; Peb is also called 'Vikatgad' for its supposed shape of the Elephant Headed God, 'Ganesh'. The trek to the top involves surmounting a small rock patch and a ladder. The fort is famous for its caves which are maintained by disciples of Swami Samartha and the meditation chambers carved out from the rock inside the mountain. To get inside the meditation chamber, one has to crawl through a narrow passage in the rock and then climb down into the meditation chamber.

It is assumed that this fort derived its name Peb from the Goddess Pebi at the base of the fort. Historical references clearly indicate that ShivajiMaharaj used the caves on the fort as silos for grain storage.

Dear 99Hikers team,

Thank you for the beautiful and mesmerizing experience of seeing fireflies in their natural environment. We will always cherish the experience.

We would like to give a few points of improvement as to the services and amenities provided:

1. We were a little disappointed as a group of 108 was way to big and only with 02 team leaders to handle such a group. in such a short trip, it was not possible to even get to interact with others in the group.

2. Such a large group required more than two team leaders as it was clear to us that it was difficult for 99hikers team to handle 108 people at a go with ease.

3. There was no meet and greet session to acquaint everyone with the agenda before starting our journey, therefore, everyone was clueless as to how we were to proceed. There was time in the bus to announce the agenda but it was not utilized to do the same.

4. Tents were not assigned to campers beforehand so it led to a lot of confusion and took up a lot of time to assign tents after reaching the campsite. We loved the tent facilities provided of course, they were well-built, comfortable and in a good location with the river view. However, the washroom facilities could be improved upon.

All in all, a good experience, but a lot of room to improve upon, especially with regards to connecting with your patrons.

Thank you once again for a wonderful camping experience.

Hope to be able to join other fun activities by 99Hikers.

All the very best to your team!
