About Kalsubai

Kalsubai Peak, with an elevation of 5400 feet, is the highest peak in the Sahyadris, and offers a thrilling trek, especially in the monsoon. The view from the top of the 'Everest of Maharashtra' is stunning and offers great photography opportunities, but the real reward is the thrill of conquering this peak. There are some rocky sections that can get very slippery in the rains, and some slopes that are quite steep, making the Kalsubai trek quite challenging. En route to the Kalsubai peak, you’ll find beautiful streams and pools that invite you to take a break and enjoy your surroundings. There are long vistas of green landscape on all sides, pretty water bodies, and even a charming local temple at the top. The Kalsubai trek is a fun challenge that tests your endurance, and will give you gorgeous views of the landscape around.

About the Kalsubai Trek

While Kalsubai is a tough trek, it's also a very beautiful one. It is recommended that only trekkers with experience try this trek. The route to the Kalsubai Peak is a mix of easy to ascend slopes as well as treacherous rocky terrain overlooking the valley below. Atop the Kalsubai Peak, you can see numerous other famous forts like Alang-Madan-Kulang, Ratangad, Harishchandragad, and many others.

Kalsubai treks are arranged to be day treks as well as night treks. Day treks to the Kalsubai Peak begin at Kasara station in the early hours of the morning. You'll watch the dark sky of the night turn into daylight as you travel. At night, it's even more thrilling. In the dark, you'll have to go slower than usual, listening to the nocturnal animals and birds, and enjoying the challenge of navigating in low light. The mesmerising view from the top will leave you feeling accomplished, especially as the sun rises.

Route for the Kalsubai Trek

For a day trek to Kalsubai peak, you’ll gather at the pick-up point in the evening and travel to the start point. You'll reach the base village in the early hours of the morning, and eat a tasty breakfast. By 6:30 am, your trek begins. The ascent takes about 3-4 hours and you'll spend some time relaxing at the summit. By noon, it's time to descend again. After that, proceed homewards from Kasara station.

For an overnight Kalsubai trek, you'll have to reach Kasara railway station by 11:15 pm. You will begin your trek after reaching Baari, around 01:00 am. By around 06:00 am, you'll reach the top of Kalsubai, just in time to watch the sky turning pink with the daylight. You'll have a couple of hours to rest or explore the top of Kalsubai. By around 08:00 am, it's time to descend. From the base, you'll be transferred to Kasara railway station.

Best time for the Kalsubai Trek

During the monsoon, the trek is dotted with beautiful streams, and spectacular sights. Visit the ancient temple of the local deity while getting the complete monsoon trek experience. Lately, the authorities have built iron ladders along the slopes for the benefit of those climbing. While this helps, the climb can be a challenge, especially during the rainy months when winds are strong and the rocks are always wet and mossy, so tread carefully.
