Prabalmachi is located between Matheran and Panvel and comes under the Raigad District in the state of Maharashtra, India. This is a very small and remote village on the base of Fort Prabalgad. The beauty of this place is due to its rustic location where you find lots of nature and no pollution at all. Trek to Prabalmachi is about 1.5 hrs to 2 hours from its base. The height of the Prabalmachi village is 390 meters above sea level.
The village of Prabalmachi is the base camp for a trek up the Prabalgad Fort (766 m) and Kalavantin is a 500m. It is located near the Machi and Vajepur villages. The Prabalgad Fort stands at an elevation of 2,300 feet in the Western Ghats. The fort was previously known as Muranjan until it was taken over and renamed by the Maratha forces under Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj's rule. The fort has a Ganesh temple and some unidentified stone ruins. Its sister fort is Irshalgad. Right next to Prabalgad, to its north, lies the steep Kalavantin fort.
