Kalsubai Peak Trek

Climb up to an altitude of 5,400 feet and scale the highest mountain peak in the state of Maharashtra. The trek to Kalsubai, even as it goes over uphill terrain marked by slippery rocks, dense jungles and steep inclines, is perfect for fit beginners as well as experienced trekkers. Throughout the trek, clattering iron ladders will assist your climb. Patches of open meadows with an easy ascent will give you a chance to stop and admire gorgeous views of the Sahyadri mountain ranges. From the top of the peak, the highest point in Maharashtra, you'll catch refreshing views of other peaks including the trio of Alang, Madan and Kulang and the vast expanse of Lake Arthur.


Often called as the Mt. Everest of Maharashtra, the Kalsubai peak is located in the Kalsubai Harishchandragad Wildlife Sanctuary, a short distance away from Igatpuri. As the monsoon brings a change of scenery over the hills by turning them green, the peak of Kalsubai becomes a popular destination of avid nature lovers and trekking enthusiasts during the monsoon season. Atop the peak, there is a temple frequented by local villagers and vantage points to click awesome photographs and view breathtaking sceneries.
