Kamalu Bhutambara | Our Motivation

Kamalu Bhutambara, father of Nilesh Bhutambara, belongs to the tribal family. He has been in the village for past 60 years when the village had no connectivity with the developed areas. He had survived in the village, solely dependent on food from hunting and collecting medicinal leaves from the forest. His immense exPerience about each nook and corner of the forest is irreplaceable. He has been our inspiration in developing the beautiful location into a tourist place. We would like to give you an exPerience of the serene forest life which is near to impossible in the fast moving city life.

Ganga | Executive Chef

Ganga Bhutambara, mother of Nilesh Bhutambara, is the owner of Prabalgad Hotel. She is running prabalgad hotel at prabalmachi for the last 5 years. She makes food on a wooden chullah (stove crafted in wood) which families come to eat all the way from Mumbai. Her recipe includes home made spices, freshly picked veggies from the forest and the smoky taste of cooking in wood. Country chicken made by her is a must try for all the non vegetarian lovers. The adoration for her cooking earned her a lot of appreciation and reviews from tourists in google for Prabalgad hotel.

Nilesh | Founder of Prabalgad Valley Tourism

Nilesh Bhutambara (called "Bhau" by dear ones) is the only “Tribal" boy who graduated from his village. His village is ancient and beautiful, situated half-way up a mountain at the base of Prabalgad Fort and Kalavantin Durg. The two forts and the natural beauty of the surrounding regions has attracted many visitors and fort-enthusiasts. He observed that this area was not explored to the fullest by many. He was born and bought up at Prabalmachi village from childhood and has long-standing relationship with forest mountains, tribal culture and lifestyle. He decided to start Prabalgad Valley Tourism for camping, trekking and especially unique and special local events that are available nowhere. The special events and adventure activities that give real exPerience of their tribal lifestyle, culture, and taste of real local wood cooked delicacies are just priceless.
