How about a night trek to the coldest part of Maharashtra!
Beat the heat at the tallestpeak in Maharashtra,the only location where the temperature stays below 20 at night, even in summers! The pre-monsoon Sahyadri skyline looks like a gigantic painting in the horizon,one has to personally experience this magical play of clouds. Couple that with thrilling night trekking experience, and youll have a memoir of a lifetime!
Kalsubai, standing at 5,400 ft is the tallest peak in Maharashtra and its commanding view also overlooks all major treks in Igatpuri area including Ratangad, Harishchandragad, AMK, etc. Although the Sahyadris are famous for its monsoon treks, the magic of pre-monsoon is highly under-rated! You can see many fire flies hovering around you, the chill of night is a perfect respite from the city heat and pollution, and the amazing cloud formations, which can be viewed from the top during sunrise, is something which cannot be described in words. Interestingly, one will experience a temperature drop from the base village to the summit of almost 15 degrees!
Join us to climb Kalsubai to enjoy the chill before the Monsoons.
