In Sahyadris, How much meters do you climb from base village to top

How much climb in meters you actually climb in Sahyadris during your trek?

I have measured heights of base villages in Sahyadris through Altimeter  and by using GPS device from Garmin which is the most trusted device and also from my altimeter app on Lumia Windows Phone.

My Procedure was as follows
     1) You know the height of the mountain in Sahyadris from mean sea level(Information available in many trek related books and over internet). Record it.This is reading A             
     2)      Reach the base village and take the Altimeter readings(B).This is the reading of base village altitude from mean sea level.              
      3)      Now do simple mathematics of (A-B) and you get the actual climb
This actual climb is what you climb in your trek from the base village to the top and this you know even before you climb
Here are few readings which I took recently in some treks treks in past 6 months to 1 year as well as some data I had previously collected.Based on this,I have

Still more to come

Surprisingly you find interesting facts

1) Bhimashankar,Siddhagad etc are 1000 meters above sea level but still you climb around 800 meters in your trek whereas Rajgad Torana etc are having height around 1400 meters, but yet their climb is around 450 to 600 meters

2) Harishchandragad from Belpada in Konkan is the trek offering highest climb around 1200 meters from base village to top followed by Ajoba Parvat and Kulang.These trek takes around 4 to 11 hours of climbing.Same is the case of Ratangad and Dhakoba from Konkan(total climb of these treks is not mentioned from konkan yet)
