Peb fort derives its name from the Goddess ‘Pebi’. It is also called Vikatgad because its pinnacle is supposedly in the shape of the Elephant headed god – Ganesha. The fort lies in the Matheran range itself and is adjacent to Matheran.
It is an easy trek, with the slightly difficult parts being the small rock patch and a ladder. There are caves to stay in which are well maintained by the disciples of Swami Samartha. Peb fort is very special because of its meditation chambers, which are well maintained with tiles to sit on. It has an entry via a narrow passage from which you have to climb down into the meditation chamber. The fort also has a temple dedicated to Swami Samartha on the top and has the footwear or ‘Padukas’ worn by the great saint kept on the top. The view from the summit is also worth the entire climb
