Kalsubai Peak

Climbing the summit or Kalsubai peak is one of the best things to do in Indore as it is the topmost peak in Maharashtra standing with a height of 16446 metres. The whole hilltop is a chunk of the Harishchandragad Kalsubai Sanctuary. A village called Bari is where the route to the summit starts, followed by various trekking routes, the animal tracks in the route gifts a thrilling atmosphere to the climbers. Local guides are available throughout the year who help the visitors in climbing the summit. The route to the peak is very well marked and perfectly guides the trekkers. It is one of the most thrilling as well as enjoyable place to trek. The Kalsubai temple is situated in the summit of the peak, only three people can sit in this temple at one time. When one reaches the summit apart from the temple, the hugely spread out backwaters of Bhandardara also attracts the attention.

1. Kalsubai Peak Trek
सफर के दौरान मैं अक्सर खुद कहीं गुम हो जाने के लालच में रहता हूँ। मुझे चलते-चलते और सोचते-सोचते कहीं गुम हो जाना बहुत पसंद है। अपने इसी शौक को पूरा करते हुए हम देखते ही देखते खड़वली, आसनगांव और खर्डी जैसे इलाके पार करते हुए करीब 2 घंटों में मुंबई शहर में रहने वाले बाशिंदों के सबसे फेवरेट वीकेंड टूरिस्ट प्लेस कसारा घाट पहुंच गए। और भाई साहब, कसारा घाट पहुंचकर यहां के नजारों ने हमें अपनी थकान मिटाने का बेहद खूबसूरत मौका दिया। हमारे भीगे हुए बदन पर बहती हवा के टकराने से शरीर में छूट रही कंपकंपी को कंट्रोल करने लिए गुंजन ने रामबाण इलाज 'चाय' के लिए यहां-वहां नजर दौड़ाई और तुरंत ही उसे एक टपरी नजर आ गई। सड़क किनारे टपरी पर गर्म चाय की चुस्कियां लेते-लेते घाट से बहते झरनों को देखने का एहसास ऐसा कि सारा दिन इन्हीं दृश्यों को एकटक देखते ही गुजर जाए।
मेरे लिए सफर कहीं पहुंचना नहीं है बल्कि इसके ठीक उलट मेरे लिए सफर कहीं से निकलना है। अपनी जगह और अपने कंफर्ट से कहीं दूर। किसी एकदम बेगानी और अनजानी जगह। मेरे लिए सफर का मतलब ओवररेटेड मंजिल को सर माथे से लगाने की बजाय उस तक पहुंचने के लिए तय किए गए सफर को आंखों के जरिए रोम-रोम में भर लेना और फिर खुद को पूरी तरह खाली कर देना है। तो खुद को खाली कर देने के अपने पसंदीदा ख्याल को अमलीजामा पहनाने के लिए मैंने अपने दोस्त गुंजन के साथ महाराष्ट्र का "माउंट ऐवरेस्ट" कहे जाने वाले 'कलसुबाई शिखर' को फतह करने का प्लान बनाया।
On the next day we started our Trek in the morning as around 30  min of walk the rain started again and we all are wet completely, then we thought let's continue this way as higher we're climbing the rainfall getting dense and wind also added in it. And we're climbing and climbing and it was getting very windy the wind was blowing around 60kmph and it was not easy to see and climb because the rain was falling staright into our eyes and we're not able to see the path.Sk I as personally took a halt so as the rain get slower down then I'll move further.And finally we reached to the top after facing all difficulties there was temple of some Hindu Goddess.And we spent couple of minutes over there and thought it was worth trekking over here and facing all difficulties.

What I did:We decided to drive to Igatpuri in the evening, stayed overnight and then drove to Bari in the morning to start our trek.It rained throughout the day, and I really enjoyed my trekking up the peak besides the route was completely into shambles and slippery all the way up! It was a holiday, hence hundreds of people were climbing on the day, creating jams at the stairs which are put up in the route along with the last section of the peak wherein only one person can climb up at a time!Honestly, it wasn't very safe in terms of the condition of the stairs installed along with number of people trying to hang on them at a time!Nonetheless, we really enjoyed our time trekking in absolutely beautiful weather with low hanging clouds, crossing overflowing river and enjoying a gushing waterfall om our way 😊
