Dear Friends we invite you all for Republic Day trek to Kalsubai fort highest peak of Maharashtra on 26th Jan 16 Kalsubai Peak is the highest peak (1646 meters) of the Sahyadris on the border of Igatpuri Taluka, Nashik district and Akole Taluka, of Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra. 'Kalsubai' temple is located at the top most peak of Sahyadri mountain range of Maharastra. The main route starts from the village of Bari which is about six km from Bhandardara. The main route to the temple is at small climbing slope . It usually takes three hours to reach the top from Bari. There small huts in this area who could be very helpful in case of any emergency. There are three iron ladders along this route. There is a well near the last iron ladder as one approaches the top but the water is not potable during the summer. The rest of the route is without water, so it is best to fill water bottles in Bari. It is an easy hike, but parts of it are quite steep. Reptiles like lizards and snakes could be spotted sun-bathing during winter mornings near the ladders. 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.    Fort infoType: PeakHeight: 5400 Feet above MSL (Approx)Grade: Easy- mediumBase Village: Bari.Trek Leader : Girish The itinerary for trek is: Meeting at : Pritam Hotel Dadar East 11.00 pm (On 25th Jan 2016)Pick up Points : Nitin Company Junction , Thane 11.45 pm.

Dear Friends we invite you all for Camping at Naneghat on 16 17 Jan 2016 We Will Travel by Vehicle till top (No Ascend Only Descend Naneghat).   Little info about the fort : Place: Naneghat Height: 2750 feet Base Village: Vaishakhare District: Thane Difficulty Level: Easy Endurance Level: Medium Region : Malshej Trek Leader: Nishant Sheth.   We will be going to Naneghat top by jeep Via Junnar, camping and stay in tents, Morning Explore surrounding places and Start Descend Reach Base village  12 o'clock reach Kalyan 2 o'clock. Naneghat (Nane = Coin, Ghat = pass) is a famous landmark near Malshej Ghat/Kalyan region due to its thumb shape.  This pass has historic importance as it was used around 200 BC as a trade route between the Konkan (Seaside) and Ghat (rest of maharashtra plateau).  Naneghat is about 50 KMs from kalyan on NH 222. A 3 hour trek takes you on top of the world.  Bor Ghat, Malshej Ghat and Naneghat were the foremost  road links for commuting coast to the plateau.   From here one can enjoy the vast plateau.  The Satvaahans had made Naneghat their main route to Junnar. During their tenure the most important way of  commuting was Naneghat, which linked Kalyan & Sopara to Paithan. Today one has to reach Junnar by going all the way through Malshej, which is a big round.  But Naneghat had much reduced distance and was a definitely shorter route. However, as time proceeded, it was destroyed by alien rulers and then paid no  attention. The first thing we can see after reaching Naneghat is the spacious cave of Naneghat. The ancient carvings, which are seen on the walls of the  cave, remind us of the Satvaahan period. Here we find inscriptions in Brahmi script all over the cave. These indicate the magnificent era of the Satvaahans and their generosity. These inscriptions are gradually being destroyed and only a part of it is remaining. The inscriptions are very precious, and are  undergoing destruction due to the negligence of Archeology.     The widely spre... Read more
