Kalsubai Camping

Kalsubai, standing at 5,400 feet is the tallest peak in Maharashtra and its commanding view also overlooks all major treks in Igatpuri area including Ratangad, Harishchandragad, AMK, etc. Embark on an exhilarating trek to the mighty Kalsubai peak and camp out under the stars.

It is not just about climbing the tallest peak, the view from the top is incomparable! It is literally like walking on the clouds. And the rays of sunrise falling on it has a magical effect. Moreover, the cold wind blowing on your face at the summit transpose you to another world!

Although the Sahyadris are famous for its treks, the magic of winter treks highly under-rated! 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!

This is a CarvanTrips Select trip: A personalised Road Trip & Adventure experience which requires no minimum booking and no dependency on any group. A fun new way of discovering Hidden locations, Secret campsites, Adventure activities and unique experiences on your own, without the worry of uncertainties. Each of these destinations come highly recommended by our past travellers and Carvan Trips endorses these only after personally visiting there.
