The Complete Guide to Kalsubai Peak Trek

Kalsubai Peak is a very popular trek in the Sahyadri region. It is the highest peak in Maharashtra at 5,400 ft and is easily accessible both from Mumbai and Pune. The trek offers a breathtaking combination of natural environments like waterfalls, forests, grasslands, and historic forts. 

The Kalsubai Temple at the summit of the peak draws people from the nearby villages throughout the year. They come to take blessings from Kalsubai Devi.  It is believed that a young village girl named Kalsubai, lived in the mountains. During that time she cured villagers and animals and also helped in village activities. One day she left for the summit and never returned. So in her memory, a small temple was built at her home on the mountainside and the main Kalsubai temple was built on the peak.

The Kalsubai trek offers views of many famous forts like Alang, Madan, and Kulang . The treks to these peaks are pretty challenging. On a clear day, you also get imposing views of other surrounding forts such as Harihargad, Harishchandragad, and Ratangad . Many experienced trekkers combine these treks for added adventure.

The Kalsubai trek is also a very popular night trek. Trekkers flock here for the brilliant views of the sunrise!

The Thrill of climbing four narrow iron ladders on vertical rock faces!

The ladder section comprising four narrow iron ladders is the most adventurous and challenging part of the trek. The ascent and descent on this trek is the same way so there is a two-way traffic of trekkers and villagers! Trekking in the monsoon season can be tricky on these ladders.

Section I: From Bari Village to Ladder section

Trek distance: 3 km Trek duration: 1 hour 45 minutes GPS coordinates of Bari village: 19°36'44.48"n  73°43'57.19"e GPS coordinates of ladder section: 19°36'10.87"n  73°43'2.55"e

The trek starts from Bari village. Walk through the village on the path that leads straight through it, without taking any of the turns that you come across.

Once you leave the village behind, the trek begins with a walk through some fields. Take a right after you reach the end of the hutments. In monsoon, there will likely be a stream flowing here. You will need to cross this and continue walking through the fields.

Walk through the farmlands where a variety of rice like Indraini, Kolum, and Tukda are grown. Wheat and green vegetables like Tandul are also cultivated. The trail passes through one or two villager houses and dhabbas. There are some steep ascents in this section.

The path naturally turns upwards to the left after the fields. The trail now becomes a little rocky. It is well shaded by trees. The first small ascent leads you to the temple of a local deity. This is an ideal place for some quick rest.

The summit is visible from this point and looks deceptively close but you’re at least 2.5-3 hours away.

The trail ahead is marked almost throughout with no scope of getting lost. It continues to ascend from here and the terrain is rocky. The tree cover disappears in around half an hour.

After an hour of trekking, you reach the first set of iron steps. Be careful while climbing this. It becomes a little slippery in monsoon. There are four such climbing ascents. Each of these is quick and steep. The descent might induce knee pain.

The rock surface is steep. To tackle these, the steps are at spots where climbing the rock surface is difficult.

Each of the ladder sections is followed by an ascending trail which flattens out into small sections. It’s mostly grassy here. If there are many trekkers during the monsoon, the path tends to get slushy.

After close to 3 hours of climbing, you reach a ridge-like area when you might believe you have reached the summit. However, there’s still a small last climb left.

Panoramic views of the different mountain forts and the Kalsubai-Harishchandragad range makes the summit worth the demanding trek. Make sure you spend enough time to absorb what the mountain views offer!

Best time To Do The Kalsubai Peak Trek

The trek is open throughout the year with each season having a different landscape. So choose the best time depending on what you would like to experience.

July to September is the monsoon season. You get to see lush green landscapes and experience trekking in heavy rain. Although the monsoon season is the peak season it gets extremely crowded with about 2000- 3000 people on the trail.  It gets very slippery and risky due to the slushy trail. It is very difficult to get clear views too so it's best to avoid this season.

September and October are the flowering seasons. These autumn months give clear views of the surrounding peaks and forts. You get to experience walking on grasslands with a vast variety of flowers. The same variety of flowers found in the Kaas plateau is also found here. Snake lovers get to see some rare species on the iron ladders.

Night hikes are best from November to April when the weather is perfect to witness the spectacular sunrise from the summit. It can get a bit chilly so carry a light jacket.

May and June are the pre-monsoon months. The clouds form interesting patterns, also look out for the fireflies!

➤ How to Get Fit for the Trek

The Kalsubai Peak trek is classified as a Moderate grade trek . From Bari Village at 2400 feet, you will gain approximately 3000 feet in altitude. 

Here’s a guide to help you get fit for a Moderate grade trek in 4 weeks.

Cardiovascular endurance.

In case you’re just starting with a fitness routine, start slow and increase your pace every day in the following manner –

  • Target completing a brisk walk of 5 km in 45 minutes when you begin.
  • Gradually increase your pace by walking 5 km, 4 times a week.
  • As you become more comfortable, introduce jogging into your routine. 
  • Progressively increase the distance you jog in a workout until you can complete 5 km in 37 mins.

If you prefer cycling over running, target covering 15 km in 60 minutes when you begin.

  • Progressively increase your pace to cover 20 km in one hour.

Strength Training

This is an important area you need to work on. 

Strength training is equally important to trek comfortably. Work on your glutes, calves and knees. Additionally, work on strengthening your core.

You must strengthen your core muscles. For strengthening your core muscles, holding a plank and its variations (elbow, side planks) are the best exercises to go about doing it.

Also, try these exercises for strength-

Target 4 sets of squats with 20 in each set

– Squats (Mix it up with sumo squats)

– Lunges (Forward, backward and lateral lunges)

Flexibility

Flexibility determines the amount of movement your bones can make in any direction around joints such as shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees. 

It is an aspect that will help you trek comfortably. Carrying a backpack, however light can become a strain. Stretching your hamstrings, quadriceps, hip flexors, and lower back muscles regularly promote relaxation in the tissues reducing the strain on your back.

If you can’t go out and jog because of time and space constraints, here’s a video you can use to work out indoors.

➤ How Difficult is Kalsubai Peak Trek

There are some sections on the Kalsubai Trek that can be classified as moderate-difficult. A trekker must always be aware and should prepare for any eventuality. 

Here are a few difficult sections on the Kalsubai trek you should keep an eye out for - 

The Ladder Section - The 3rd and 4th ladders on the trek are one of the most difficult sections to cross. The ladders are slightly old with a few sections having broken handles. They are vertical and steep over rock faces.

During the monsoon season, the trail is crowded and you will have trekkers simultaneously ascending and descending on the ladders. As the ladders are not in very good condition, you need to be extremely cautious while using them.

Also, trekking in monsoon, the section after the small temple, and before the ladders get very slippery and slushy, be extremely careful in this section.

Kalsubai’s Base Village Bari

It is a small village and is quite clean and beautiful with many paddy fields around it. The water facility is good but you would hardly get drinking water on the trek route. It is advisable to reach the village as early as possible (around 5 am) to witness a beautiful morning and to avoid a lot of crowds. You will have to park your vehicle on the main road and walk through the entrance to the village.

At the starting of the village, there is a small house converted into an eatery/resting point which provides breakfast and meals to the trekkers.

Kalsubai Trek From Mumbai

The trekking trail turns the most beautiful during monsoons.

There is a medium hike till you reach the first stop where there is a small temple under a tree; taking a left turn from there will lead you to a pathway passing through paddy fields. You can stop to have nimbu paani or tea at the stall here or else you can move up.

The route turns steeper before you reach a plateau. You would be climbing the first ladder now. Don’t forget to glance back and see the floating clouds below you.

After an hour of hike, you will start climbing the steep ladders which will finally take you to the base of Kalsubai Temple; that is, the chef’s Dhaba (A small hut) who will serve the most delicious onion pakora and chai ever. Do not miss out this mouthwatering delicacy in the cold rainy weather. Trust me, you will forget all the pakoras you have ever had anywhere.

The last steep ladder takes you to the temple of the Devi from where you would see the clouds raining below you. All your efforts to climb up will seem worthy. Carry enough winter wears as it would be too cold at 5,400 ft.

In case you are hiking on your own, there are no chances of getting lost as the route is well marked and as there are many tapries on the way, the owners would definitely guide you. Or else you just need to keep following other hundreds of trekkers moving to the same destination. (Only during seasons – Monsoons/Winter)

And please do not litter this heavenly place and try adding to its beauty by collecting the wrappers thrown by illiterate people.

The same route should be followed while getting down till you cross the mini-waterfall at the starting of the village.

Waterfalls at Bari

Kalsubai trek base village

If you have started climbing as early as 6 in the morning then you would definitely have some time to spend at the clean and not so crowded waterfalls located at the right turn before entering the village. The first waterfall is at five minutes distance, but if you wish to enjoy in a better waterfall you will have to keep walking for a few more minutes and you would see a comparatively bigger and clear waterfall. It isn’t dangerous as the water level is not too high.

How to reach Mumbai from Kalsubai 

The local buses pass from the highway outside the village. The buses will drop you till Kasara. After that, you will have to catch a local train towards Mumbai.

Guide to Kalsubai Trek

Kalsubai – ‘the everest of maharashtra’..

Related image

Kalsubai is Maharashtra’s highest peak. Standing at a staggering height of 5400 ft. above sea level; it offers stunning views of the Sahyadri ranges and lush green cover surrounding the mountain. Kalsubai is one of the most popular trekking destinations in Maharashtra. The trek is steep in places but is helped immensely by the good infrastructure in place for the trek, making it accessible for inexperienced trekkers as well. The mountain itself dates back to the Cenozoic Era, composed mostly of solidified flood basalt. Kalsubai is a great spot for star gazers and campers as well.

Nestled amongst the pristine Sahyadri ranges, the Kalsubai trek is a blend of rocky patches and steep vertical hill slopes. The peak gives an excellent view of various forts such as Kulang, Madan, Alang forts. We recommend this place as a one-day trek , but incase an overnight journey is being planned, one can stay at Bhandardara which is approx 16-17 km away from Bari Village. If you are feeling a bit more adventurous, pitch your tent on top of the hill at a suitable place to camp. There are many travel agencies which conduct trek events at this place. But since the route is pretty straightforward and well laid-out, going without a guide or group is not much of an issue. For details about accommodation at Bhandardara, refer to our article on this beautiful location here

In the winters, snakes and lizards can be spotted sun-bathing near the ladders often.

– The meadows bursting with flowers in bloom make for a splendid day trek-route and activities such as stargazing and Moonlight treks attract a large number of travelers to Kalsubai in the Winter. The months from October to February are suitable to enjoy the mesmerizing view of the  night skies and beautiful sunrises atop the hill.

Both Vagabond Experiences and Ajay Singh from the Adventures Club Pune recommend the night trekking experience while climbing Kalsubai peak.

“As there is hardly any forest cover on the Kalsubai Trek, the Moonlit sky and night trekking makes for a fun experience as you can avoid the heat,” states Shannon Fernandes.  “In comparison to other treks, there is a clear laid out path and staircase to climb and so there isn’t much of a risk to trek at night.”

MUMBAI TO BARI

– Located at a distance of approx 150 KM from Mumbai, it takes 2-3 hours to reach the village of Bari, which is the base of the trek.

https://talkingtota.files.wordpress.com/2014/06/kasubai-004.jpg

The trek route begins at Bari, which is the base village. There is a small temple which is 15 minutes away from the start of the trek route. People who can’t climb up till the peak take the blessings of the deity at this Kalsubai temple. There are patches of shade at frequent intervals which can be used to rest and enjoy the breeze which gushes through the mountain route often. A word of advice though – opt for a night trek (especially in Summer) or begin the journey as early as possible in the morning; as the scorching heat tends to dehydrate and tire the trekkers on what is a long trek route to the peak. Fortunately, there are little stalls serving buttermilk and lemon juice at various places on the route, which leave one feeling refreshed and energized.

For breakfast and lunch, you can head to this place called Kalsubai Tea Centre And Dharmaveer Lunch Home which serves tourists. snacks and meals near the base Village. In case you need details about their menu and location, here is their Contact no : 099234 42273

Camping at the peak is possible and a very enjoyable experience. If you are planning an overnight camp, you can carry your own tents and pitch them at a suitable corner on the summit. Typically, you will find clusters of tents at and around the peak during peak seasons.

Do note though, that there is no washroom facility or toilet at the top of the mountain. There is a washroom located only at the base village to freshen up.

Apart from the camping option, Hotel Trek Kalsubai is an alternative for a more comfortable stay. Not only does this hotel provide accommodation at the base village, but it also provides trekking and camping facilities like guides, tents, etc for the Kalsubai trail. Here is their Contact no : 083903 74971

Nights at the top of the mountain can get quite chilly and so carrying a jacket or blanket to wrap yourself with warmth is quite a must. While the temperature during the day ranges from 35°C to 28°C, it can dip as low as 12°C to 15°C at night.

WHAT TO PACK

The Kalsubai trek can be long and arduous, so it’s best to be prepared and carry the right gear. At the same time, overpacking leading to a heavy load on your shoulders can be counterproductive. So choose your gear well and ensure that it is lightweight, portable where possible. Here are some suggestions:

  • Backpack: Ideal size would be 20-45 liters. Make sure it has a good carrying system with adequate padding and ideally a chest strap. We recommend the the Tatonka Pyrox 45 lit as top of the line trekking backpacks. This should have enough space for you to load up your tent and sleeping bag as well. For a day trek, even a good quality daypack/school bag will work – such as the  Deuter Futura 32 lit
  • Shoes: Many people are seen undertaking a trek in flaoters etc. This will increase the risk of slipping significantly, especially during monsoons. We strongly recommend basic hiking or (trail) running shoes.
  • Camera: Ideally a point and shoot with good zoom or a 360* camera , for capturing the scenic locations and/or Binoculars (one within a large group is enough)
  • 2L Water Bottle per person
  • Sweatshirt ( During winters)
  • Torch / Headlamp , especially for night treks
  • Dry Snacks like biscuits, wafers or nutty bars.
  • Cap/ sunglasses
  • Raincoat/ Poncho ( During Monsoons)
  • Power Banks for charging electronic devices
  • Hiking pole , especially if you have weak knees

If you are camping, you will also additionally need the following:

  • A camping kit such as this or the following separately
  • Tent (waterproof for monsoons)
  • Sleeping bags (10* in winter, 20* in monsoon)
  • Tent light/ lantern
  • Peebuddy for women

SAFETY AND SECURITY

-The rocky patches and metal staircases often get slippery during monsoons and thus, some caution should be exercised while trekking. Invest in a sturdy pair of shoes with good grip!

– Take along a basic first-aid kit to help in case of injuries or emergencies.

-The main hospitals in this area for any medical emergency are : 1) Primary Health Care Center Ahmednagar; Maharashtra. Contact no :097628 30880 2) Samarth Hospital SH44; KolaharGhoti Road; AurangpurPhata; Contact no : 099222 64094

-The nearest police station is located at a distance of just 160 m from Bari village.

Here are some details :

Akole Police Station Dhumalwadi Road; Amrut Nagar; Akole; Maharashtra 422601; India phone: 02424 221 333.

Kalsubai Trek Route & Difficulty

Ladder Section on Kalsubai Trek

The Kalsubai Trek has two routes; however, in this guide, we will cover the most common one, the ladder route from Bari. The trek is a  6 km (approx) long trek  that takes approximately  3-4 hours  to reach the summit. The hike is divided into three sections: the initial climb, the plateau walk, and the final ascent.

Here’s a breakdown of what you can expect from each section of the trek:

  • Initial Climb:  The trek starts through farmlands and rice fields and then has a steep climb up a series of rocky steps, which can be challenging for some. This hike section is difficult, so take your time and pace yourself.
  • Plateau Walk:  Once you’ve done the initial climb, the trek levels out, and you’ll walk along a scenic plateau with stunning views of the surrounding mountains.
  • Final Ascent:  The final stretch of the trek is the most challenging, with steep inclines on the ladder and rocky terrain. However, the sense of accomplishment you’ll feel when you reach the summit is worth the effort.

The difficulty level of the trek is moderate.  A beginner with zero hiking experience but a good fitness level can attempt this trek because the terrain is comparatively easy compared to other hikes in Maharashtra. However, one must be careful in the monsoons because the trail gets slippery.

Best Time to do the Kalsubai Trek

Celebrating 3 million hits, amazon sale, kalsubai peak trek | stay contact numbers | how to reach from mumbai & pune.

By Mahesh 7 Comments | Last Updated June 29, 2019

We started from Chinchwad at around 11.30 pm and went to village Bari via Sangamner.(Travelling via sangamner was wise decision by Mandar since on the return journey we tried shortcut which was extremely bad !) Reached Bari at around 5 am and started climb at around 7.30 am (after tea and bk fast) all members could reach the peak in 3 hours (cloudy atmosphere helped us though) Climbing is not that difficult, due to the fact that ladders are laid down at all difficult rock patches … Descending time was less than 2 hours …

** the most important incident in Kalsubai trek ** leopard sightseeing

When we left the highway at Sangameshwar and turned towards Baari road … I told Mandar to keep an eye on road, since the past experience shows that animal sighting is a possibility at night travel .. Mandar casually said that here we can have sighting of Rabbit 🙂 .. in just few minutes it was beginning of first Ghat section … few houses were there and suddenly we could see big cat “leopard” inside a sugarcane farm !! by the time we realized that its leopard the bus has crossed down at high speed and there was no point in going back to check whether  leopard was still there !!! I think a lesson can be learnt in this to keep your eyes wide open (if you are not able to sleep at night travel) on small roads where you are far away from the highways …

Kalsubai trek difficulty level

Medium height is 5400 feet,

  • Sunrise from the peak (It is said that in 1860 Mr. Arch DiCken Gale climbed Kalasubai peak at night and mesmerized by the sunrise. He mentioned Kalasubai as the King of Deccan Hills)
  • East, Aundha, Vishramgad, Bitangad
  • West, Alang, Madangad, Kulang, Ratangad (south west)

You can stay in the Hanuman temple in the village, if you need good stay Samadhan Khanawal (located before entry on village) is better option.

Precautions [ read things to carry during trek ]

  • Use proper trekking gears for this trek
  • Carry sufficient amount of water, I recommend at least 2.5 liter per person, being humid it sucks your energy (although you get water sold by local people on the way, as a good practice carry your own water)
  • Snakes  are seen around the route hence precaution is necessary when you wish to sit around and rest

Kalsubai Trek: A Thrilling Journey to Maharashtra’s Highest Peak

Table of Contents

Introduction

Picture this: you’re hanging in the air, between the earth and the sky, supported by nothing but a ladder. It’s a moment that defines adventure, one that tests your boundaries, celebrates your bravery and etches itself into your very being. My Kalsubai trek was all about these moments, and I can’t wait to take you along on this extraordinary journey.

Kalsubai Trek

Historical Perspective

To fully appreciate the grandeur of Kalsubai, you must first understand the heights it reaches. Kalsubai is the highest peak in Maharashtra, India, and it reaches an elevation of 1,646 meters (5,400 feet) above sea level. This Kalsubai peak height isn’t just a number; it’s the heart and soul of this mountain, showcasing the rugged beauty of the Western Ghats.

But Kalsubai’s significance goes beyond its impressive height. People have been coming here for ages to pay their respects to the local goddess. The name “Kalsubai” itself derived from a village woman named Kalsu who took up the challenging task of scaling the mountain. She couldn’t complete the task, but her efforts earned her the name of the mountain. Some cool stories and legends make this place even more special. It’s not just a trek; it’s a cultural journey.

How to reach Kalsubai Trek

Now, before we delve into the heart of this journey, let’s talk about how you can actually get to Kalsubai. If you’re in Mumbai or Pune, you’re in for a treat because Kalsubai isn’t too far away. You can opt for a scenic bus ride or choose to drive, both promising a delightful journey.

The drive is an adventure in itself, taking you through the serene rural landscapes of Maharashtra. As you leave the bustling city behind and head toward the mountains, you’ll witness the landscape transform, preparing you for the adventure that awaits.

The trek kicks off from Bari, the base village of Kalsubai. Reaching Bari is relatively straightforward. If you’re relying on public transport, catch a bus to Igatpuri, a town located close to Bari. From Igatpuri, you can easily hire a local vehicle to reach Bari, the starting point of your trek.

If you have the luxury of your wheels, driving to Bari offers flexibility, allowing you to set your pace and make impromptu stops to admire the scenic beauty of the region. The journey covers approximately 165 kilometers from Mumbai to Bari and typically takes around three to four hours, depending on factors like traffic and road conditions.

Best Time to Visit Kalsubai Trek

The prime trekking season for Kalsubai peak trek is during the cool, pleasant months of November to February. It is when the weather is just right, with clear skies and comfortable temperatures. During these months, the landscape surrounding Kalsubai is a lush green, offering a beautiful contrast to the rocky terrain. The trek becomes a delightful adventure where the elements are in your favor.

However, it’s best to avoid Kalsubai peak during the monsoon season, which typically runs from June to September. The heavy rainfall during these months can transform the trails into slippery, muddy paths, making navigation challenging and potentially risky. While the monsoon does bring about greenery and the sight of waterfalls, it’s not the safest time to undertake the trek. Safety first, as they say!

Trek Difficulty and Duration

Now, let’s dive into the nitty-gritty. Is the Kalsubai trek right for you, and how long will it take? Well, here’s the scoop: the Kalsubai trek is fantastic because it caters to a wide range of trekkers, from novices to seasoned hikers. The difficulty level of Kalsubai trek is often classified as moderate, making it suitable for most adventure enthusiasts.

Now, let’s talk time. The typical duration of the Kalsubai trek, from start to finish, is around 6 to 7 hours. This can vary depending on your fitness level and how fast you want to tackle it. Some adventurers might complete it more swiftly, while others savor the journey, relishing the breathtaking scenery.

Kalsubai Trek Route

When you get to the base village, Bari, you’ll start your trek. It’s a bit steep at first, but don’t worry; it gets easier as you go. The path is well-defined so that you won’t get lost. The lush green surroundings and the cool mountain air are incredibly refreshing, especially after leaving behind the hustle and bustle of city life.

As you ascend, you’ll notice the change in the vegetation around you. The dense forests and the abundance of wildflowers create a magical atmosphere. The monsoon season, with its frequent showers, transforms this region into a paradise for nature lovers.

And then, you encounter the “Heavenly Ladder.” This is the most exciting and challenging part of the trek. The ladder is a steep climb, and as you make your way up, you’ll be surrounded by the breathtaking view of the valley below. The feeling of accomplishment once you conquer this section is truly extraordinary.

    Introduction

    In the Sahyadri area, Kalsubai Peak is a famous trip. With a height of 5,400 feet, it is Maharashtra's tallest mountain and is conveniently accessible from both Mumbai and Pune. The walk passes through a stunning variety of natural settings, including waterfalls, woodlands, meadows, and medieval forts.

    Visitors from local communities go to the Kalsubai Temple at the peak's summit throughout the year. They have come to seek Kalsubai Devi's blessings. Kalsubai, a young village girl, is said to have lived in the mountains. She treated locals and animals at that period and assisted in community activities. She went to the peak one day and never came back. So, in her honour, a tiny temple was built on the slope near her house, and the larger Kalsubai temple was constructed on the top.

    Many prominent forts, such as Alang, Madan, and Kulang, may be seen from the Kalsubai hike. The hikes up to these summits are strenuous. On a clear day, you can see Harihargad, Harishchandragad, and Ratangad, as well as other forts in the area. For extra adventure, many experienced hikers combine these trips. The Kalsubai trek is a popular night hike as well. Trekkers come here for the spectacular morning views!

    Best Time To Go On Kalsubai Trek

    The trail is available all year, with a varied environment for each season. So, pick the optimum time based on what you want to see and do.

    The monsoon season lasts from July through September. You will be able to enjoy beautiful green landscapes and stroll in the rain. Despite the monsoon season being the busiest, the path may get quite congested, with up to 3000 people on the trail at any given time. Due to the slushy trail, it becomes extremely slippery and dangerous. It's also quite difficult to gain clear views during this time, so it's better to avoid it.

    The blossoming months are September and October. The neighbouring peaks and forts may be seen well during the fall months. You will be able to wander across meadows with a wide diversity of flowers. The same flowers that can be seen on the Kaas plateau may also be found here. On the iron ladders, snake enthusiasts can glimpse several unusual species.

    The greatest time to go on a night trek is from November to April, when the weather is warm enough to see the stunning dawn from the peak. Carry a light jacket because it might get chilly.

    The pre-monsoon months are May and June. The clouds create intriguing patterns, and keep an eye out for fireflies!

    How To Get To Kalsubai Trek?

    By road - Mumbai to Bari

    • The town of Bari, which is the starting point for the journey, is around 150 kilometres from Mumbai and takes 2-3 hours to arrive. Hence, taking the road rather than the rail is strongly advised from a convenience standpoint.
    • From Mumbai to Kalsubai, the best route is Mumbai > Kalyan > Ghatgar > Bhandardara > Bari.

    By road - Pune to Bari

    • Bari village is 180 kilometres from Pune and takes about 4-5 hours to visit.
    • Pune > Sangamner > Rajur > Bhandardara > Bari is the best route from Pune to Kalsubai.

    By public transport - 

    • The closest stations to Bari village are Kasara and Igatpuri. Kasara is 50 kilometres from Bari, whereas Igatpuri is about 30 kilometres.
    • From CST to Igatpuri, one can catch the Mahanagri Express, Nandigram Express, Kolkata Mail, or Howrah Mail train, or a local train to Kasara.
    • Private automobiles and buses run routinely from Igatpuri and Kasara Station to Bhandardara, Pune, and Akole, all of which stop at Bari. Buses leave Igatpuri Station as early as 5 a.m.

    Kalsubai Trek Difficulty Level

    Although it is a difficult journey, there are steps that go to the peak's summit. The in excellent condition metal ladder has been installed in uneven sections that may be difficult to climb. As a result, it is quite accessible to first-time hikers.

    The area is protected inside the limits of the Kalsubai Harishchandragad Wildlife Sanctuary. The walk starts at Bari, which is the starting point. A tiny temple may be seen 15 minutes from the start of the walking path. People who are unable to ascend to the summit seek the deity's blessings at the Kalsubai shrine. There are pockets of shade at regular intervals where you may rest and enjoy the air that blows through the mountain road. However, as the blazing heat tends to dehydrate and fatigue hikers on what is a long walk path to the top, consider doing a night trek (particularly in the summer) or starting the journey as early as possible in the morning. Fortunately, several little kiosks along the road provide buttermilk and lemon juice, leaving one feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

    It is possible to camp at the summit, and it is a really nice experience. You can bring your own tents and pitch them in a good location on the top if you're planning an overnight stay. You’ll typically see groups of tents at and around the top during peak seasons.

    However, it should be noted that there are no restrooms or toilets at the summit of the mountain. There is a bathroom in the base village if you want to freshen up.

    The nights at the top of the mountain may be extremely cool, so bringing a jacket or blanket to cover yourself in warmth is highly recommended. While the temperature fluctuates from 35°C to 28°C during the day, it may drop to as low as 12°C to 15°C at night.

    Important Things To Carry On The Kalsubai Trek

    Because the Kalsubai trip may be lengthy and difficult, it's important to be prepared and bring the appropriate equipment. On the other hand, overpacking might result in a hefty burden on your shoulders, which can be counterproductive. So pick your stuff carefully and make it as light and portable as possible. Here are a few recommendations:

    • Backpack : A size of 20-45 litres would be ideal. Check for a sturdy carrying method with plenty of cushioning and, ideally, a chest strap. You should be able to pack your tent and sleeping bag inside this as well. Even a decent quality daypack/school bag will be enough for a day hike.
    • Shoes : Many individuals are observed trekking in floaters and other vehicles. This will considerably increase the risk of sliding, especially during the rainy season. Basic hiking or (trail) running shoes are highly recommended.
    • Camera : For photographing stunning settings, a point-and-shoot camera with decent zoom or a 360* camera is ideal, as are binoculars.
    • 2 litres water bottle per person
    • Sweatshirt (During winters)
    • Torch/Headlamp (for night treks)
    • Dry Snacks like biscuits, wafers, or nutty bars
    • Cap/Sunglasses
    • Raincoat/Poncho (During Monsoons)
    • Power Banks for charging electronic devices
    • Hiking pole, especially if you have weak knees

    If you are camping, you will also additionally need the following:

    • A camping kit 
    • Tent (waterproof for monsoons)
    • Sleeping bags
    • Tent light/lantern
    • Pee buddy for women

    • Kalsubai temple: The Kalsubai temple attracts a large number of worshipers. It is a highly auspicious temple, and people come here to seek Kalsubai Devi's blessings. On top of the Kalsubai peak, this temple may be found.
    • Kalsubai Trek: Kalsubai provides a tough and fascinating hiking experience. The Kalsubai walk is popular among travellers because of its abundance of natural and scenic beauty. Because of the fascinating and interesting trip experience, it is a favourite trekking destination.
    • Walk in the grasslands: Near Kalsubai is a settlement called Bari village, which boasts the most stunning lush green grassland. This location is ideal for a relaxing and enjoyable stroll with your loved ones. It is the section of the walk that is, without a doubt, the most enjoyable.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    1. what to expect at the summit of kalsubai peak.

    Expect to see panoramic views of the area, including mountains, rich flora, and lovely water bodies, when you approach the peak of Kalsubai. These vistas will help you forget about the arduous walk. Take in the stunning vistas of the Bhandardara backwaters and neighbouring hills, including the forts of Harishchandragad, Ratangad, Harihargad, and Alang-Madan-Kulang. A temple devoted to the local god, Kalsubai, can also be seen atop the hill. The temple priest leads the prayer every Tuesday and Thursday, attracting throngs of worshippers.

    2. What should you go for among the two: Kalsubai day trek or Kalsubai night trek?
