A brief history:


Kalsubai, according to local legend, was the name of a tormented daughter-in-law who ran away to the top of a hill to escape harassment from her in-laws. She is believed to have disappeared here and the locals built a temple in her memory on the peak’s summit. The hill is named Kalsubai after her.



Kalsubai is the highest peak in Maharashtra and is one of the most enjoyable treks. The route to the top is well marked and many trekkers and pilgrims visit to reach the peak which has a small temple of Kalsubai.



During monsoon the peak is like being in heaven and is covered with fog and has strong winds blowing. But the best time to visit is during September just after monsoon when there are thousands of wild flowers blooming everywhere and the climate is just perfect for a trek.



Kalsubai trek has three ladders which have been installed by locals to make the trekking route till Mount Kalsubai easy. When trekkers reach the carved steps and later ladder from Bari Village you would have covered 1/3rd of the trek. After all the ladders are over 2/3rd of the trek is over.  After a decent walk on plateau you will reach the final ladder till Kalsubai summit.




Trekking Kalsubai peak takes about 3 hours and can be very tiring hence carry enough food and water. Trekkers can also take a night trek in winter and enjoy the sunrise at Kalsubai.




Camping info:


Camping in and around Kalsubai is possible and campers can bring in their own tents and rations for the night. However the best option for camping would be by the Arthur Lake near Bhandardara. Bari the base village is less than half an hour from Bhandardara with the rugged Sahyadri hills providing the perfect backdrop for the tranquil lake.
