Aasamant Trek To Kalsubai 9th Aug 2009

Date: 9th Aug 2009

Kalsubai is situated in the Balaghat range. At an altitude of nearly 5500 ft, it is the highest peak in the Sahyadris. Hence it is also referred to as ‘The Mt.Everest of the Sahyadris’. Kalsubai has Ratangad, Harishchandragad, Alang-gad, Madangad and Kulang-gad as its neighbours. On clear days, we get great views of these forts from the top. A small temple dedicated to Kalsubai is situated on the top.
What to look forward to on this trek…
Kalsubai peak /temple on top.
The roaring winds and the sheer altitude make it a must-see during the monsoon.
A ‘well’ on top which has water all round the year.
Bhandardara dam / reservoir.
