Trek Mates Night trek to NANEGHAT on 30-31 May 2009

Hi friends,

We at Trek Mates are planning for a night trek to NANEGHAT on 30-31 May 2009.

NaneGhat Pass - This sheer cliff is a well know landmark, very clearly visible from Konkan region as you pass on your way from Kalyan towards Malshej. The walls of this pass jut out from the main range and hence command a magnificent view of the great bend in the Sahyadri. This is a pass, which once in history, enjoyed prime importance. The inscriptions, the steps, the rock-cut rest houses, and the cisterns all point out the historic fact that this route was frequently used as far back as the 1st century B.C. The Nane Ghat area and the caves are now very popular due to an easy access from Malshej ghat road.

This is a pleasant one day hike with dramatic views from the top.
