This 2300 foot trekking route isn’t for the faint-hearted! It takes a lot of courage and a bit of steel nerves to willingly go down those steps. Just the sight of the video might make some people faint, let alone the trek itself.

Kalavantin Durg Trek stands high in the Western Ghats, Near Panvel, Mumbai, with a 700 ft sheer drop. They must be extremely careful when placing their feet, otherwise they may slip and fall. All together the footpath takes six hours to climb down. In a place where the air is extremely humid and it rains a lot, that is quite an easy feat to achieve.
The Kayakers is a group pursuing the outdoor activities in Prune, India, the members in group love to go out and explore the nature in the heart of the Black Mountains. They filmed this footage in July, 2017. Watching the video, we can see a group of enthusiasts carefully climbing down the steps and the person taking the video climbing down alongside them.
