Dear Trekkers, Nature Lovers & Photographers,

We at Sahyavihar Trekkers are glad to invite you all for Thrilling Trek To Kalsubai On 18th Jan 2015 (Leaving On 17th Night)

Information about Kalsubai…
Type: Peak
Height: 1646 meters or 5400 Feet above MSL (Approx)
Grade: Medium
Village: Bari

Kalsubai is the highest peak of the Sahyadris in Maharashtra.
Kalsubai is situated in Ahmadnagar district at approximately 25-30 Km. South-East of Igatpuri. At the summit is a small temple of Kalsubai, which can seat just three people. At this superb height, the view is just marvellous. The vastly spread out backwaters of Bhandardara attract one’s attention from the top. To the north of the mountain range forts such as Ramsej, Harihargad, Brahmagiri, Anjaneri, Ghargad, Bahula, Tringalwadi, Kavnai can be seen. To the east one can spot Aundha, Patta, Bitangad, to the west Alang, Madan, Kulang, Ratangad (south west) and to the south Pabargad, Ghanchakkar, Harishchandragad can be seen.
It usually takes 3 hours to reach the top from Bari and 4 from Indore. Soon after leaving Bari, a small stream is crossed followed soon after by a Hanuman temple. The route from behind this temple takes the hiker straight to the summit. There are three iron ladders along this route. There is a well near the last iron ladder as one approaches the top. Since Kalsubai is extremely famous, enough efforts have been taken to make this trek easy. There are steel railings, chains and ladders at places where it is difficult to climb.

Reaching the top is a real satisfaction. Reaching a top of the Everest is but a special one! As far as Maharashtra is concerned, reaching the summit of Kalsubai, the Everest of Maharashtra, should also be a special one!
