My memory:- When I went to Kalsubai in 2018 Monsoon, I met a man who hiked Kalsubai 4 times in a day. He was practising for a big summit.
A fact: Couple of years back, a boy and a girl met on the top of Kalsubai, fell in love and ended up marrying each other on Kalsubai summit itself.
The whole crowd hiked Kalsubai for attending their marriage.
Every year, many people celebrate Republic Day and Independence Day.
Kalsubai had been witness to many such insane people and you can get to meet those crazy minds!
You can proudly write in your diary that you have hiked a mountain which is 5400 feet high! This can be a great milestone for life.
