Kasara railway station is easily accessible by means of rail and road. It is the final railway station on the central line of the Mumbai suburban railway network.
Participants coming from Pune can also reach Kasara by means of rail or road.
Kalsubai is the highest peak in the Sahyadris, and offers a thrilling trek, especially in the monsoon. It stands tall at 5400 ft, with a trail that is treacherous in parts due to the rocky sections that get very slippery, and some slopes that are so steep that iron steps or ladders had to be installed. There are some beautiful streams and pools along the route, offering a chance to take a break and enjoy your surroundings.
While Kalsubai is a tough trek, it's also a very beautiful one. There are long vistas of green landscape on all sides, pretty water bodies, and even a charming local temple at the top. The excitement of climbing the 'Everest of Maharashtra' is in the air, and there are usually other climbers on the trail to add to the camaraderie.
From the top of the fort, you can see numerous other famous forts like Alang-Madan-Kulang, Ratangad, Harishchandragad, and many others.
