Night trek to the Tallest Peak of Maharashtra
The tallest peak of the world, Everest has been a dream of every trekker. How about a night 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 in Sahyadris…. the sun can be actually seen rising from the horizon. It is literally like walking on the clouds. And the rays of sunrise falling on it has a magical effect!” Exlcaims an ex climber.
Although the Sahyadris are famous for its monsoon treks, the magic of pre-monsoon are highly under-rated! You can see millions of fire flies hovering around you, the chill of night is a perfect respite from the city heat and pollution, and the amazing cloud formations, which can be viewed from the top during sunrise, is something which cannot be described in words. Interestingly, one will experience a temperature drop from the base village to the summit of almost 15 degrees!
Join us to climb Kalsubai to enjoy the chill before the Monsoons!
