Fitness Trek to the Everest of Maharashtra
We’re happy to share & introducing a unique concept for a healthy lifestyle called “fitness trekking”! Spend your Sundays not running on a stationary tredmill in a boring gym or binge eating while lying around like a couch potato. Instead, join us for Medium level monsoon treks in the backdrop of picturesque locations of cloud covered mountains! Each trek is bound to burn 1000+ calories!
The tallest peak of the world, Everest has been a dream of every trekker. How about a trek to the tallest peak of Maharashtra?
Kalsubai, standing at 5,400 ft is the tallest peak in Maharashtra and its commanding view also overlooks all major treks in Igatpuri area including Ratangad, Harishchandragad, AMK, etc.
It is not just about climbing the tallest peak, “The view from the top is uncomparable! It has one of the best sights I have seen from the top in Sahyadris…. It is literally like walking on the clouds. And the rays of sun falling on it has a magical effect!” Exlcaims an ex climber.
Calculated Calorie Burn:
We will be carrying along a GPS based (non cellular) device to measure our ascend, descend and total disctance covered. This device will be worn by one person along with a HR monitor, which will help us calculate the average calories burnt by that person. The exact calorie burn count would vary upon the physical attributes of each person.
