Night Trek to Kalsubai from Mumbai, which happens to be the trek to the highest peak of Maharashtra is a worthy weekend getaway experience.
At the summit is a small temple of Kalsubai, which can seat just three people. This being the highest peak, it commands a beautiful view. The vastly spread out backwaters of Bhandardara attracts ones attention from the top. To the north of the mountain range forts such as Ramsej, Harihargad, Brahmagiri, Anjaneri, Ghargad, Bahula, Tringalwadi, Kavnai can be seen. To the east one can spot Aundha, Vishramgad, Bitangad, to the west Alang, Madangad, Kulang, Ratangad (south west) and to the south Pabhargad, Ghanchakkar, Harishchandragad can be seen.
The main trek route to Kalsubai peak starts from the village of Bari which is about 6 km from Bhandardara. To reach Bari, one has to travel to Igatpuri on the Mumbai Nashik route.
