Kalsubai
Fascinating Spots :

      On the top of the peak is a small temple, which can seat at the most 3 people. The vastly spread out backwaters of Bhandardara attracts ones attention from the top. On the north we see the mountain range having forts like Ramsej, Achala, Ahivant, Saptashrungi, Markandya, Dhodap, Rawlya , Jawlya and Koldher. To the east one can spot Aundh, Vishramgad, Alang, Madan, Kulang, Matheran and Harishchandragad. There has, however, been a massive deforestation on this mountain. One can spend around an hour on this peak before starting to descend back to the village.
Ways To Reach :
      To reach this peak there are various trekking routes and animal grazing tracks. The main route however goes up from the village of Bari. This village is at a distance of around 6 km from Bhandardara. To reach Bari, one has to reach Igatpuri in the Mumbai - Nasik route. From Igatpuri take the early morning S.T. to Pune and alight at Bari. It takes 3 hours to reach the top from here. There are three iron ladders along this route. You can reach the top and return back in around 5-6 hours if you leave your sacks at the base village. As soon as you leave the village, u come across a stream. Within a few minutes of crossing the stream you come across a temple. The route going from behind this temple takes us straight up to the top of the peak.
Accommodation Facility :
      There is a no accommodation facility on this peak.
Food Facility :
      Food arrangements can be made at the base village of Bari.
Drinking Water Facility :
      There is a well near the last ladder. As the complete route is without water sources, one has to fill in the water bottles from Bari and carry it all through the route.
Notes :
      It is an easy trek. The only difficulty is the inclination, which is quite steep at places.
