Goodwill Hiking: Overnight Trek To Mt. Kalsubai
White Collar Hippie bring to you incredible offbeat, travel and outdoor experiences. Be humbled and transformed by the journeys you embark on. And White Collar Hippie wants you to go on a journey with them!
It’s Winter and it's the perfect time to put on your trekking shoes and explore the beautiful Sahyadris!
White Collar Hippie looks at taking activities a step above the usual, and this time they will be doing so by hiking overnight and reversing some of the damage done to the environment to the best of their ability.
This overnight trek will be to Kalsubai Peak, which is the highest mountain peak, situated in the Western Ghats of Maharashtra. Since it’s a very famous trek it has been made easy with ladders and paths along the route. The trek will start early in the morning around 3 am to reach the peak in time for sunrise. While descending, you along with the team at White Collar Hippie will be cleaning up the trail and head back to the base village where lunch will be awaiting you!
Spend a night at the ‘Everest of Maharashtra’, as you indulge in its lushness and adventure. Enjoy the freshly cooked organic meals prepared by the hosts that come straight from their hearts and homes!
What’s in it that makes it different from all the other treks that are happening?
1. CLEAN UP DRIVES – Throughout the trek, as you bask in the glory of mother nature, wash off the grime and grit of your everyday city life, collect the trash on your way as a humble exchange for the soul cleansing and rejuvenation that the hills provide you with.
2. CONTRIBUTING TO THE LOCAL ECONOMY - During the trek, some of the local hosts will help you as guides and just all around knowledge boosters (as they say, the best-kept secrets of a place are known only to the locals!). Apart from this, they will be cooking fresh organic meals that come straight from their very own kitchens. What better way of spreading love and feelings of communal harmony than by sharing meals!
3. Another opportunity you will be seizing is one that fits with White Collar Hippie's philosophy, and surely, fits yours too! A part of the proceeds will be shared to an educational initiative in the host village, as just another way of giving thanks for the hospitality, love and time that they will be offering you.
Fun fact about Kalsubai Fort: Local legend says that Kalsubai was a house maid residing in a nearby Indorey village. She is believed to have disappeared near the mountain while trying to escape her employer's relentless torment. This lends the mountain its current name as well as a reason for this temple to be built in her fond memory.
What better way to spend a night in this season than, living it to the fullest, with things that make your soul happy: friends, nature, food and lots of adventure!
