The next day, you'll start a new day of the new year 2019 by climbing over inclining mountain slopes and scale the pinnacle of Prabalgad Fort. Photogenic views of the valley await at the top.


The plateau of Prabalmachi, at an elevation of 1,500 feet, stands overlooking the bright city lights, the distant mountains of the Western Ghats and the yellow lights of the Mumbai-Pune Expressway.
