Kothaligad is more commonly known as the fort of Peth because the
village of Peth is situated at its base. The pinnacle of the Peth can
be seen from the village. It looks like a filed surface. On reaching
the top of the fort, we see caves carved in huge rocks. The first one
is the cave of Goddess, besides which is a water cistern and the last
one is the specious Bhairoba cave. A flat floor and well-sculpted
pillars are specialty of the cave. Along the Bhairoba cave, steps are
carved leading the pinnacle. Four–Five potholes and some cannon balls
are scattered in the fort.

Brief Introduction about Kalsubai : -
.

Height: ~ 5400 feet
Grade:  Medium
Time: ~ Maximum 3 hrs from Bari
Location: Igatpuri

Kalsubai is the highest peak of the Sahyadris, the Everest of Maharashtra. At the summit is a small temple of Kalsubai. This being the highest peak, it commands a beautiful view.The vastly spread out backwaters of Bhandardara attracts ones attention from the top. To the north of the mountain range forts such as Ramsej, Harihargad, Brahmagiri, Anjaneri, Ghargad, Bahula, Tringalwadi, Kavnai can be seen. To the east one can spot Aundha, Vishramgad, Bitangad, to the west Alang, Madangad, Kulang, Ratangad (south west) and to the south Pabhargad, Ghanchakkar, Harishchandragad can be seen.
Since Kalsubai is extremely famous, enough effort has been made to make this trek easy. There are steel railings, chains and ladders at places where it is difficult to climb. There is a symbolic temple at the top.
