All videos are from our 2014 trip. Harishchandragad is a hill fort in Malshej Ghat which has played a major role in guarding and controlling the surrounding region. This hill fort can be approached from multiple routes. One such route via Nalichi Vaat (which translates to ‘passage through a gorge’) is a channel that lies to the extreme right of the mountain. It is the most difficult path to the top. Popular among climbers and experienced trekkers, Nalichi Vaat involves a near 80 degree climb, involving steep rock patches. The trail begins on a stream bed filled with large man-sized rocks and eventually leads to the foot of the gorge. Jassi, Shravan and few others on the Trek route. Most of the uphill route is through a Gorge and that means lot of steep climbs over huge rolling boulders. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRmQtPVJ_jQ The Trek comprises Rock climbing multiple patches. Below is one of them. On a rainy day there would usually be a waterfall at this exact patch. Ananth Leading the climb to set up the rope followed by Dhilleban showing how to climb with a rope.

The highest Peak of Maharashtra, Kalsubai - get ready to experience one of the most amazing treks in Sahyadris with its green mountains and waterfalls. Considered to be one of the best trekking spots. Hurry up!!! Only 13 slots available on a first come first serve basis. Difficulty level : Easy to Medium Category: Adventure / Trek / Nature Camping Weather Forecast: Weather near Kalsubai ( https://www.accuweather.com/en/in/igatpuri/189444/daily-weather-forecast/189444?day=50 ) 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. 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.

Category: Adventure/Trek/Camping Trek type: Hill Fort Grade : Easy-Moderate Base Village: Bhor Height: ~4500 ft Team size: 14+2 Raireshwar is situated in Bhor near Pune. Raireshwar has a temple famous for its historical importance. The temple is very old and of stone structure, but it was later re-constructed in 18th century. Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj took the oath of Hindavi Swarajya in this temple at the age of 16 in 1645 and then created history.
