And before you leave, read the legend of Kalsubai!!
The peak gets its name from a woman. Apparently, she got upset with her family for some reason and found herself flocking to a peak. Her family sought her and pleaded to return but she wouldn't. She made her home atop a peak and remained there forever. It has since then become Kalsubai peak and she is worshipped as its Goddess.
If you know different versions of the story or have an interesting story from this trek, write it below in the comments! :)
Gorak, our dear friend from Purushwadi, had connected us with Ganesh, a local guide from Randha. Do message me if you need his phone number. Ganesh provides tents to camp along with yummy, home-made Maharashtrian meals.
One can do this trek without any local guide as well. Since it's a popular trek, you would find trekkers regularly on the route. Summers are harsh and dry, therefore, night treks are rather advisable during that season.
