Kalsubai Trek | Mapping Journeys
There's a certain thrill, joy and ecstasy that comes while putting foot on the highest land in the state. Mt. Kalsubai. 5,400 feet.
Ready to conquer the highest peak of Maharashtra this Monsoon?
Kalsubai is a mountain of the Sahyadris range located in the Indian state of Maharashtra. Its summit, situated at an elevation of 5400 feet is the highest point in Maharashtra which earns the much glorified title of the 'Everest of Maharashtra'.
Kalsubai, though the highest peak, is a comparatively medum grade trek. The peak has a temple which many pilgrims aim at visiting. Hence, for such pilgrimers, trekkers the government and local villagers have made the route easy and safe by putting ladders and staircase wherever necessary. So reaching to the top is just a test of your stamina and not mountaineering skill. But once you reach the top, you get an absolutely uninterrupted view of the surroundings.
No other peak pokes its nose between you and the spectacular view! :D
