Kalsubai Peak

Highest Peak in Maharashtra : 5400 ft.

Highlights

With the height of 1646 m, this is the highest peak in the Western Ghats & Maharashtra. It is beautifully shaped and commands a fantastic view. The small temple of Devi Kalsubai at the top is legendary and receives many pilgrims.

For trekkers, this is simple mountain to climb. An easy but steep route leads to an upper plateau that has water.
It usually takes 3 hours to reach the top from Bari and 4 from Indore village. There are three iron ladders along this route. 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.

The top is rocky, and one can see distant peaks in all directions. 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.

For a change, you can descend by a different route. A route from the upper plateau traverses the mountain on the southern side, to descend to Udadhavane village.
An adjoining hill (western edge) also has a conical shape, like Kalsubai. It is 1580 m and is approachable through a connecting col with Kalsubai.

History

As per the legend, Kalsubai stayed in a nearby village as a young girl on one condition that her employers would not employ her to do manual work. When asked to do, she fled to this hill. A temple has been constructed on the top in her glory and villagers visit it often green bangles to please the goddess of women’s liberation.
