NIGHT TREK TO KALSUBAI
Dates as per your choice
About the Fort:-
The highest peak in the world is Mount Everest. Likewise, Kalsubai is the highest peak in the Sahyadris in Maharashtra. Kalsubai Temple is Located at the Topmost peak of Sahyadri Mountain Range of Maharashtra.
Route:- One has to reach Bari village via Igatpuri - Ghoti. Bari village is about 170 kms from Mumbai. The main route starts from the village of Bari which is about six km before Bhandardara. To reach Bari, one has to travel to Igatpuri on the Mumbai Nasik route. It takes 3 hours to reach the top from here. There are three iron ladders along this route. You can reach the top and return back in around 5-6 hours. As soon as you leave the village, you come across a stream. Within a few minutes of crossing the stream you come across a temple. The route going from behind this temple takes us straight up to the top of the peak.
Bari Village to top– 3 hours
Surroundings:- 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 the north we see the mountain range having 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. One can spend around an hour on this peak before starting to descend back to the village.
