We at Trekगुरु are glad to invite you all for Thrilling Trek To Kalsubai On 24 july 2016 (leaving 23 july night).
Kalsubai is known as the Mt. Everest of Maharashtra. It is the highest mountain (5400 feet or 1646 meters) in Maharashtra. It is located in Akole Taluka of Ahmednagar district in northern Sahyadri mountain portion of Western Ghats. Although this is not the highest peak of entire Sahyadri mountain range, highest Sahyadri mountain is Anamudi in Kerala state of india.
At the summit is a small temple of Kalsubai. This being the highest peak, it commands a beautiful view.The vastly spread out backwaters of Bhandardara attracts ones 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, Vishramgad, Bitangad, to the west Alang, Madangad, Kulang, Ratangad (south west) and to the south Pabargad, Ghanchakkar, Harishchandragad can be seen.
Since Kalsubai is extremely famous, enough effort has been made to make this trek easy. There are steel railings, chains and ladders at places where it is difficult to climb. There is a symbolic temple at the top.
