JEEVDHAN NANEGHAT TREK – 13TH September 2015 - Ayudh Adventures
The terrain in Maharashtra is highly uneven and is primarily divided as coastal plains and eastern plateau. These are connected by ghats. Sixty such ghats exist in Sahyadri and they have played a major role as commercial routes. Huge forts guarded each of them. The whole range that has been guarding the ancient commercial route of Naneghat for thousands of years includes the forts of Jeevdhan, Hadsar, and Mahishgad & Chavand.
Jeevdhan: Jivdhan lies at the mouth of Naneghat (height 3757 Feet) and is a quite tougher one. Moreover it is famous for the pinnacle Vandarlingi. The fort stands at an important position and most important guard of Naneghat.
It was under Bahmani control and after that it went to Nizamshah. In 1818, the British captured all the forts here and destroyed them. Steps are broken due to the devastation by the British. Jivdhan too became a victim and the main entrance was destroyed. Even today the marks of those wounds cannot go unnoticed as we climb the fort. The entrance being ruined, a small gap exists through which we reach the top of the fort. Here the bastions and ramparts are very intact in spite of such devastation. We reach the western side of the fort.
Naneghat: Bor Ghat, Malshej Ghat and Naneghat were the foremost road links for commuting coast to the 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.
The first thing we can see after reaching Naneghat is the spacious cave of Naneghat. Now the forest department have made efforts to keep it clean and put up gates. At the entrance to the Ghat is a big stone-made vessel like thing, in which coins as toll were put. To the left the steps besides the cave lead us to the plateau and going to the right lead us to Nana's thumb.
