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!

Did the trek for first time and felt good, with Alpine Ramblers group it was a pleasure full experience. Had some difficulty but with trekk experts Rushikesh Gawde it was great. Recommend Alpine Ramblers for any one who is interested in trekking

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 !
