Kalsubai with the height of 1646m [5400 Feet] is famous as one of the highest peaks in Maharashtra. Kalsubai lies in the Sahyadri mountain range. This being the highest peak, it commands a beautiful view. Since Kalsubai is extremely famous, enough effort has been made to make this trek easy. There are steel railings, chains, and ladders at places where it is difficult to climb. There is a symbolic temple at the top. It is truly believed by the local villagers that a housemaid residing in a nearby village had disappeared near the mountain while trying to escape for employers Harsh suffering. This gives the mountain its present name, Kalsubai.
A small temple is built here, in her memory. From the top of Mount Kalsubai, one can get a great view of the Bhandardara Lake and Wison dam, immediately after the rainy season, the place is covered with a variety of flowers. It usually takes three hours to reach the top from Bari. Soon after leaving Bari, a small stream is crossed followed soon after by a Hanuman temple. The route from behind this temple takes the hiker straight to the summit. There are three iron ladders along this route. There is a well near the last iron ladder as one approaches the top. The rest of the route is without water, so it is best to fill water bottles in Bari. It is an easy hike, but parts of it are quite steep in places.
