Story behind Kalsubai – Unveiled

More about the climbing patches and Summit (Kalsubai Shikhar)
Nestled among several slopes, Kalsubai trek is a mix of easy to ascend slopes as well as rocky patches overlooking the valley below. To reach Kalsubai peak, Govt. has built many iron ladders along the vertical hill slopes.
