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 spread plateau of Naneghat is an astonishment. To the left the steps besides the cave lead us to the plateau and going to the right lead us 

to Nana’s thumb. After climbing all the way to the bottom of the thumb, when we climb the stairs, we do not expect a big plateau. Thus this route leads 

directly to a higher altitude quickly, unlike Malshej Ghat, which goes all around the mountains. Ate the entrance to the Ghat is a big stone-made vessel 

like thing, in which coins as toll were put.
