Kalsubai :

The peak of Kalasubai in Nagar district is the highest peak of the mountain range of Sahyadri. The everest of the Sahyadris, Kalsubai trek is a dream of every avid trekker to climb it at least once. Kalsubai is a part of the Kalsubai Harishchandragad Wildlife Sanctuary which spreads from Kalasubai to Harischandragad in Akole. The Kalsubai sanctuary is a challenge to trekkers with its rugged hilly terrain and the Kalsubai pinnacle at its height of 5500 ft is a real steep climb.

 

 

According to the legend, Kalsu, a came to the Indore village at the foothills of Kalsubai. She took service with a Koli family on condition that she should not be asked to clean pots and sweep. Matters went smoothly till one day, when one of the family-members ordered Kalsu to clean some pots and clear away some litter. She did as she was told to, but immediately climbed the hill and stayed there till her death.

^^with Permission from Ruben Fredrick ^^

 

 

There is a steep and difficult route from Indore but trekkers prefer the ladder-route from Bari village which is about ten km from Bhandardara. It usually takes three hours to reach the top from Bari. Soon after leaving Bari, there is a Hanuman temple and 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 but the water is not potable. At the summit is a small temple of Kalsubai, which can seat just three people.

At a height of 5500 feet Kalsubai offers a panoramic view. Towards west ,Alangad, Madangad & Kulanggad could be seen towards south is the famous Bhandardhara lake and Ratangad beyond it.
