After reaching Thakurwadi, walk the uphill terrain to Prabalmachi. Before moving towards the Kalavantin Durg, you can take a break at the base of Prabalmachi and have some snacks available at the small shops and restaurants of the village. From there, start climbing Kalavantin Durg. The hike is vertiginous, as the rock-cut steps are very steep and there are no railings to support you climb. So be careful if you're scared of heights. Hiking down is challenging as well, so if you have acrophobia, it is best to avoid the trek altogether. You can then enjoy the Prabalgad Fort, which is situated next to the fortress.
Although, the journey from Mumbai to the fortress can easily be completed in 10 to 12 hours, for a wholesome experience spend the night near the fortress by pitching your tent in the village.
