This 2300 foot trekking route is not one for the faint hearted!

Kalavantin Durg Trek stands high in the Western Ghats, Near Panvel, Mumbai, and walkers follow the steps just inches away from a sheer drop of nearly 700 metres.

The Kayakers is an outdoor pursuits group based in Prune, India, who loves to go out and explore the nature in the heart of the Black Mountains and filmed the footage in July, 2017.

Mangesh Dongare, from the group, said: “around 30 people from different background attended this trip.

“Kalavantin is a 685m high pinnacle on the northern edge of the Prabal plateau, the pinnacle has very steep steps which look scary.

“The trek is about six hours long but it’s a thrilling experience.”

The video has had mixed reviews on social media.

Mangesh said: “reactions have been both positive and negative, some people said it is foolishness to do things like this, some people liked it said its thrilling and adventurous.”
