Kalsubai with the height of 1646m is famous as one of the highest peaks in Maharashtra. Kalsubai lies in the Sahyadri mountain range. This being the highest peak, it commands a beautiful view. From Igatpuri station (central railway) there are buses to Pune. We took this bus and got down at Bari village. Since Kalsubai is extremely famous, enough effort has been made to make this trek easy. There are steel railings, chains and ladders at places where it is difficult to climb. The is a symbolic temple at the top. We went to Kalsubai during the monsoon season. We could not get any shelter at the top and were left all drenched. It was frigid cold and we were shivering but the fact that we had climbed the highest peak in the western sahyadris had kept some warmth in us. After we climbed down we went straight to bhandardhara dam. Since it was monsoon, the dam was overflowing and there were hundreds of tourists.

From Igatpuri take the early morning bus (at around 5.00 am from the Igatpuri Bus Stand) going towards Pune and alight at Bari.

It usually takes three hours to reach the top from Bari. Soon after leaving Bari, a small stream is crossed followed soon after by a Hanuman temple. The route from behind this temple takes the hiker straight to the summit. There are three iron ladders along this route. There is a well near the last iron ladder as one approaches the top but the water is not potable during the summer. The rest of the route is without water, so it is best to fill water bottles in Bari. It is an easy hike, but parts of it are quite steep in places.

At the summit is a small temple of Kalsubai, which can seat just three people. The vastly spread out ...more
