Camping in the Hills – Prabalmachi By Wandering Souls

Prabalmachi is the base village to two of the most popular trekking destinations around Mumbai. It is an ideal place for camping with breathtaking views of the Panvel region and the majestic Kalavantin and Prabalgad.

Our campsite, Prabalmachi village, is located at a height of 1500ft from sea level on the Prabal plateau, a part of western ghats. The peak of Kalavantin Durg is approximately at a height of 1800 ft from sea level. So you need to trek additional 300ft to reach to the peak of Kalavantin Durg next morning if you like.

Come spend your weekend under the starry sky.

Cost: 1250/-
