  • Trip introduction

    Travel away from the noise and lights of the city and celebrate New Year 2020 during a special night trek to Kalsubai. You'll climb over a mix of easy to ascend slopes and treacherous rocky terrains on your way to the top. In the thick of night, under the twinkling sky, you'll climb over 5,400 feet above sea level to reach the highest mountain peak in Maharashtra. At the peak, you'll wait for the break of dawn for a golden sunrise over the rugged Sahyadri mountains.

    At the stroke of midnight, you'll bring in New Near 2020, in the midst of deep forests of the Sahyadri mountains, looking out over beautiful nocturnal views of the valley.

    Destination

    The Kalsubai trek has attracted adventure enthusiasts for years now, but it is only lately that the authorities have built iron ladders along the slopes for the benefit of those climbing. While this helps, the climb can still be a challenge, especially in the dark, hence, you'll have to go slower than usual. The dense jungles, the hidden trails, the rough mountains, the star-studded sky and the hooting night owls, all of this and more will make your New Year 2020 celebration special and unique.
