• Trip introduction

    Conquer the highest peak in Maharashtra on this trek to the Kalsubai Peak. On this trek, you'll trek through lush greenery to reach the top, from where you'll be treated to the breathtaking views of the Western Ghats carpeted in greenery with numerous milky waterfalls dotted here and there. You'll also get to spot other forts like Alang-Madan-Kulang, Ratangad, and Harishchandragad.


    Kalsubai Peak is the highest peak in the Sahyadirs, at an altitude of 5400 feet. The trail to the top is challenging even through there are iron stairs installed on some parts of the route; the trail consists of some rocky sections that can get slippery in rain, and some steep slopes where one needs to watch their step. Best time to trek to Kalsubai is monsoon, when the landscape is covered in lush greenery accompanied by the grey clouds engulfing the surrounding peaks.
