Highlights

Kalsubai peak is in the Western Ghats, located in the Indian state of Maharashtra. It’s summit situated at an elevation of 1646 m. (5400 feet) is the highest point in Maharashtra which earns it the much-glorified title of the “Everest of Maharashtra”.

The trek along this route is a mix of easy to ascend slopes as well as treacherous rocky outcrops overlooking the valley below. Considering the increased footfall in recent years, the government has built iron ladders along the vertical hill slopes. These assist trekkers to allow for a convenient and safe ascent

On the top of the peak is a small temple, which can seat at the most 3 people. The vastly spread out backwaters of Bhandardara attracts ones attention from the top. On a clear day, get imposing views of the surrounding forts like Ramsej, Achala, Ahivant, Saptashrungi, Markandya, Dhodap, Rawlya , Jawlya, and Koldher. To the east one can spot Aundh, Vishramgad, Alang, Madan, Kulang, Matheran and Harishchandragad. There has, however, been a massive deforestation on this mountain.

A traditional prayer service is held every Tuesday and Thursday by a priest. During the festival of Navratri, a fair comes to be organized each year with many stalls being set up near the summit to provide pooja materials to the devotees. On these special occasions, local villagers participate in this fair which helps to supplement their livelihood and as well as provides them an opportunity to revere the mountain.
