Kalsubai Peak, nestled in the Sahyadri Mountains, is the highest peak in Maharashtra, standing tall at 5,400 ft.

It's a popular trekking destination, especially for those seeking a challenging yet rewarding experience. A temple at the top is also dedicated to the local deity Kalsubai, which is a significant religious and cultural attraction!

Kalsubai Peak is located in the Akola taluka of Ahmednagar district, Maharashtra, India. It lies on the border of the Ahmednagar and Nashik districts and falls within the Kalsubai-Harishchandragad Wildlife Sanctuary. Kalsubai Peak offers a unique blend of natural beauty, cultural significance, and a challenging trek.

Kalsubai is a popular trekking destination, offering a moderately challenging route suitable for experienced trekkers. The 6-7 km round-trip trek from Bari village involves an elevation gain of around 2,790 ft. The trail is well-defined and marked, but it can be steep and rocky in certain sections. The trail passes through lush green forests, rocky terrain, and ladders.

Once you reach the summit, you can enjoy breath-taking panoramic views of the surrounding Sahyadri mountain ranges and multiple forts including the picturesque Bhandardara Dam. The picture at sunrise or sunset is particularly stunning.

Kalsubai Peak is named after Kalsubai, a revered figure in local folklore believed to possess medicinal knowledge and serve the villagers. The peak is home to a small temple dedicated to Kalsubai Devi, visited by devotees throughout the year.

The best time to visit Kalsubai for trekking is during the winter months (October to February) when the weather is pleasant and the skies are clear. Avoid the monsoon season (June to September) due to slippery trails and potential landslides.
