What to watch out for…
Spectacular View of the famous fort peaks from the summit
The views from the summit of Kalsubai Peak is astounding. Most of the famous peaks of the Sahyadris like Alang, Madan, Kulang, Ratangad, Ajoba are visible from here. Trekkers combine two or more treks for more adventure and challenge.
The Auspicious Temple of Kalsubai Devi at the summit
The Kalsubai temple is considered very auspicious and many villagers still visit the temple to seek the blessings of Kalsubai Devi. The temple is open throughout the year.
A pleasant walk amidst fields, farmland, and grasslands
Bari village is a farming village, from the start of the trek the walk is through extensive fields and farming land. This is the best part of the trek and is an easy enjoyable walk.
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.
