Brief Introduction about Kalsubai :

Height: 5400 feet                      Grade:  Medium                        Location: Igatpuri


Kalsubai is the highest peak of the Sahyadris, the Everest of Maharashtra. 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, Harihar, 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 Pabhargad, Ghanchakkar, Harishchandragad can be seen. Since Kalsubai is extremely famous, enough effort has been made to make this trek easy. There are railings, chains and ladders at places where it is difficult to climb. There is a symbolic temple at the top.

The tentative itinerary for the Trek is as given below:
