Conquering the Everest of Maharashtra

2 comments

Edited: Jan 2, 2018

Kalsubai, the highest peak of Maharashtra, India. Located in the Ahmednagar district, Kalsubai peak stands at an height of 1646 meters (5400 feet) which gives it the much glorified title of the 'Everest of Maharashtra'.

 

This peak is part of the Western ghats and Sahyadri mountain ranges. A popular destination for trekkers, it offers a spectacular view of Sahyadri mountain ranges from the top. Especially in the monsoon season, green carpet of nature captures your sight and the beauty of this place is mesmerizing.

 

Although it is the highest peak, reaching to the top is not very hard. In fact, the trek is categorized as medium difficulty trek but tests your endurance level (as it is a long trek). Generally, it takes around 3.5 to 4 hours to reach the top. The way to top is straight forward, you come across 3 iron ladders on the way which you need to be careful while climbing.

 

At the top there is a small temple dedicated to local deity, "Kalsubai".

 

Some interesting facts (source: Wikipedia):

1. Touted as the most unusual wedding, on 28 December 2014, in the presence of close family members, a couple tied knot at the temple situated on the summit.

2. Celebrations for India's 69th Independence Day took place at the summit where the Navy unfurled the largest flag of India measuring 60 feet in length and 40 feet in breadth.

 

So, are you ready to conquer "Everest of Maharashtra", there is a great opportunity by Mumbai based Happy Owl Events. Enjoy first weekend of new year 2018 by conquering "Kalsubai", the highest peak of Maharashtra.

Date : 7th January 2018 (Leaving on 6th January at 10 pm, from Borivali National Park) Cost: Rs. 1200 per person

    Happy Owl Events is majorly into Organizing Local Treks in the Sahyadri Range of Maharashtra. This year it took its first ever leap internationally and organized a Nature trip to Thailand. All in all it was a wonderful combination of City and Nature exploration. Along with the fun and thrill of the night life in Pataya and Bangkok, we had the unforgettable taste of nature at the PHI PHI Islands and James Bond Island. We had an opportunity to test our limits to experience adventure with the Bungy Jump and sea snorkling and much more. Below are some of the exclusive pictures of the unforgettable trip with Happy Owl Events. https://www.facebook.com/HappyOwlEvents/?ref=bookmarks Amazing Dophin Show Amazing Sea Rides to the Exotic Islands from Phuket Trilling Rough Sea Water Adventure Diving into the Sea and Swimming all the way to the shore was the most challenging task.

    I was introduced to quora.com by one of my friend, and I just chose to write a few answers to some questions which I felt needs an answer. Some of my answers did not get as much response as I thought, but some answers got an overwhelming response and the count on views has exceeded 3.5 lakh views and still is receiving up votes. I would love if you read those answers and comment below on why did few of them trend well and some dint really do good. Really would love to read all you analysis on this. Does Modi help you in any way ? Is Sri Sri Ravi Shankar also a hoax personality and a fraud 'baba' like others ? Why is India afraid of Pakistan ? How do I become a millionaire by the age of 25 (in India) while I'm still of 16 with no great talents? I have 14 backlogs in engineering. Should I give up my life ? Which is a safe hotel in Lonavla for an unmarried couple without police harassment ? How can I contact or meet Mr Ritesh Agarwal (founder of OYO rooms) ? Now comes the Rockstar who performed beyond expectations.. Really need to know Why. Do OYO rooms put a hidden camera? Waiting to read your comments on this... Cheers :)
