 Location

Kalsubai as seen from Bhandardara lakeReaching the top of any trek is a real satisfaction. Reaching a top of the Everest is but a special one! As far as Maharashtra is concerned, reaching the summit of Kalsubai, the Everest of Maharashtra, should also be a special one! Situated at the height of about 5400 ft, the Kalsubai temple at the top has tempted many of the trekkers to come to her way

Kalsubai is situated in Ahmadnagar district at approximately 25-30 Km.South-East from Igatpuri. Igatpuri can be reached from Kalyan (or Mumbai) by boarding a train to Nasik. It takes about three hours to reach Igatpuri from Mumbai. Base village for Kalsubai is Bari, which can be reached from Igatpuri by ST bus(frequency of buses are good) or Jeep. First bus for Bari leaves Igatpuri at 6:00 a.m. which will take you to Bari in about an hour. In about two and half hours you can reach the summit.

 
 Precaution

Ladder on the way to summitPlease do have enough water stock from Bari itself, for there is no water source in between and though a well is there at the top it doesn't suit for drinking water. Also avoid going in summer.

 
 Sight Seeing
Kalsubai temple at the summit Being a summit, there isn't anything to watch on the summit itself, except for a small Kalsubai temple. Height of 5400 feet offers a panoramic view. Just towards west ,Alangad, Madangad & Kulanggad could be seen (~4850ft). Towards south, the famous Bhandardhara lake could be easily seen & beyond it look for Ratangad (~4200 ft.)
