The mesmerising climate and the enthusiasm of the fellow trekkers make it memorable experience on 9/Oct/21.
I started at 5:15 am from Nashik to reach Bari village base, under a poor local road condition, reaching by 6:30 am.
Met Balu Kadhu-kalsubaitrek.com, a local trek event performer who had helped to get a guide since I was a 1st time trekker.
We started by 7:00 am to reach the peak at 9:45 am , while the guide had to match my slow pace with few stops while having the snap shots of the wonder scenery of fog, greenery and sun shine making it wonderful.
Generally expert trekkers reach in 40 min , like the the one guide.
We climbed up by the way which had stone patch, few steps and some steep stairs installed for climbers to approach the top.
The path wasn’t slippery with no heavy rains in recent period and even local villagers along with kids less than 10 yrs were seen climbing.
It is better not to carry any bag for food or water, unless one needs something special.Lot of stalls are available all along the trek with lemon water, snacks and even puja material and Prasad at the peak, where there is temple of Kalu Aai and many devotees and trekkers reaching top during Navaratri.
Offered prayers at the Kalubai temple and paid dakshina as well on the insistence of the pandit. Carrying a camera will add to weight and only mobile will be good.
There are also mid way camping for overnight stay, few even doing night trekking and reaching peak before 6:00 am and returning back till 9:00 am.One needs to conversant of the path or have a guide for support.While I could see the nearby mountains while climbing , it was complete fog while I reached the top and could not view anything till I decided to climb down.
Was almost in fog and barren clouds for most of the time and could easily view different scenes on different side of the mountains with a continual changing foggy atmosphere.
It was quite cool at the top although while climbing , we faced some heat.
I missed the view of the Bhandardara dam from the top which I heard is fantastic view with the fog over the top of water.
Started trek down by 11:00 am to tech down to the base by 13:15 hrs.
The delay was also on account of increasing devotee during Navaratri.
Plan to visit Kalsubai in night trekking as well during next trek to avoid heat while climbing.

I personally had a really great time even after slipping and sliding in the slush because of the monsoon season but when you reach at the top you get this feeling of serenity. You must visit this once in your life I would encourage you even more if you're young because the view was truly exhilarating!

Good trekking experience. This trek is medium difficulty grade. Started at midnight and reached the summit round 6:30 am. The perfect sunrise was captured from top. The view was beautiful from the top.

My visit to kalsubai peak was an amazing affair. Known to be the highest(5400km) peak of maharashtra, you have to be ready for the climb. It was fun in wilderness, however a complete energy drainer. One has to be careful while climbing the railings.
Climate: Monsoon is a good season,but it's slippery all the way if it rained in the night.
U have some energy boosters on your way,
Stopover: Water, bhajia, lemon drink, cucumber- beetroot salad.
One of the best place to trek with your friends n family. Adventures n exciting do visit kalsubai for once atleast !

The view from top of the peak is beautifying. This is the highest peak of Maharashtra. We went via bike. There are 2 ways to reach there. The road is under construction so we went via Peepli GAO. If you are planning to go by car then follow the main road as Village Road is too narrow and not maintained.

Trekking was always a fun , with multiple exzitingggg spots ...we had found Karnala challenging , so when we started the trek Kulsubai peak was funn ..
Finding the starting point was a challenge , and speaking to helpful villagers made it easy.
The trek initially was fairly uneventful , but later walk up over the iron steps , was something mind boggling.
We found , on our return journey , some of the brave trekker , going up in the dark for a night out awsum awsum is the word for the must make trek

Kalsubai is a 6.6 km long trek with an elevation gain of around 2700 ft. This is a one day trek having easy difficulty level with lush green landscapes and multiple waterfalls. The peak attracts many trekkers and devotees determined to scale the mountain. To reach the summit there are well designated trekking routes. The most popular route is through the eastern mountain face taking off from the base village Bari.

To reach Kalsubai peak, one has to reach to its base village Bari which falls between Ghoti and Akole route. Mumbaikars can catch local upto Kasara from Central Railway. After reaching Kasara, there are two options: State Transport bus plying to Akole/Sangamner. In the afternoon, there is bus at 2:30 pm which will take you upto Bari village. Fare of Kasara - Bari is ₹70, Second option is share Jeep but it will be too much congested and they take ₹120 per person.
After reaching Bari, there are two options, either stay in Homestay also there are few hotel which can provide accommodation.
I choose homestay Adiraj also known as Krushnavanti run by Raju Bharmal (Contact - 7350827854 ). They will charge (₹200 per meal and ₹300 for stay) for one day per person. One can opt their services for morning/night trek.
Raju Bhau and their family is very humble and caring towards their guest. I spent two fantastic days with them.
Raju Bhau also showed me nearby places and guided me for my remaining journey.

About Kalsubai peak -
It will take 1.30 Hrs to reach Kalsubai peak if you are a fit enthusiast else extra one hour. There are eatery shops enroute to peak. Some portion of the trek has iron ladders which will help in ascend and descend. Monkeys can aslo be seen nearby these ladders. Refrain yourself in carrying food in hand or open bag in these patches.
After reaching peak, There is small temple of Goddess Kalsubai surrounded by serene mountains. One can sit here for one hour before start descending.
Right from Bari village till peak, except few spots, there is no mobile range.
Nearby places to Kalsubai are - Bhandardara (18 km), Ratangad, Sandan Valley, Taked (Lord Ram with Jatayu temple). It will require additional 2 days to see these places.
