Highest Mountain in Maharashtra

Mt. Kalsubai Peak: 5400 Ft.

Kalsubai is situated in Ahmednagar district at approximately 25-30 Km. South-East of Igatpuri. 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”. At the summit, there is a small temple of goddess Kalsubai, which can seat just three people.

At this superb height, the view is just marvellous. The vastly spread out backwaters of Bhandardara attract one’s attention from the top. To the north of the mountain range forts such as Ramshej, Harihar Fort, Brahmagiri, Anjaneri, Ghargad, Bahula, Tringalwadi, Kavnai can be seen. To the east one can spot Aundha, Patta, Bitangad, to the west Alang, Madan, Kulang, Ratangad (south-west) and to the south Pabargad, Ghanchakkar, Harishchandragad can be seen.

It usually takes 3 hours to reach the top from Bari and 4 from Indore village. Soon after leaving Bari, a small stream is crossed followed soon after by a Hanuman temple. The route from behind this temple takes the hiker straight to the summit. There are three iron ladders along this route. There is a well near the last iron ladder as one approaches the top. Since Kalsubai is extremely famous, enough efforts have been taken to make this trek easy. There are steel railings, chains and ladders at places where it is difficult to climb. This is the most usual route that most of the trekkers take to climb Kalsubai.

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 puja’s 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 with an opportunity to revere the mountain.

Reaching the top is a real satisfaction. Reaching a top of the Everest is a special one! Bus as far as Maharashtra is concerned, reaching the summit of Mt. Kalsubai, the Everest of Maharashtra, should also be a special one!
