PARVAT BUDDIES: Night Trek & Camping atop KALSUBAI on 5-6th Dec 2015.   Hello Friends, we invite you all for the most-awaited trek of the winters!   Some Info about the place: Kalsubai (1646m/5400ft) needs no introduction. We all have studied Geography in school and know that this is the highest peak in the state of Maharashtra. A temple dedicated to Kalsu-Devi is situated on top of the hill. Though not a difficult trek, it surely takes a good endurance and a patient mind to scale the "Everest of Maharashtra". Reaching the top of this 'Everest' would not only give you an unmatched feeling of joy and confidence, but you would also be rewarded with a beautiful view of the surrounding valleys and hill ranges. Hence, a trek to Kalsubai definitely finds place in every trekkers' 'must-visit' list.                                     So what we are going to do is climb up the mountain in the night so you can spend the cold winter night under the starry sky and also get to enjoy the sunrise from the highest point in Maharashtra. As we trek we will come across several villagers who are mainly farmers, shepherds and local devotees – it would be a nice experience to interact with them, hear their stories and know something about their way of life. Not only this, you'd also enjoy some delicious local food too. Sounds exciting, isn't it? It can't get any better than this! So what are you waiting for? Hurry, register yourself at the earliest.
