Similar to Matheran, there is huge plateau on top covered with dense forest. It is also said that Umaji Naik made a stay here in 1826. The fort top offers an excellent view of the surroundings with Prabalgad valley in the front. Matheran, Chanderi, Irshalgad, Karnala, Manikgad, etc. can be easily seen from the top of Kalavantin pinnacle.

Stay will be on prabalmachi i.e. halfway. Also, Get ready with your cameras to shoot the actual stars. Nothing can beat the visibility of stars. Fireflies : Fireflies or lightning bugs are structured with specialized cells in their abdomen which emit light. This process is called bio luminescence and is shared by many other organisms, mostly sea-living or marine organisms. Pre-monsoon climate is the ideal period for fireflies and glow-worms for mating, they light up to attract their mate. Hundreds of fireflies gather together on a tree displaying their bio-luminescent lights in the dark nights.
