PTT : One Day Monsoon Trek to Naneghat on 5 August 2017.
Little Brief :
Height: 2750 feet
Base Village: Vaishakhare
Difficulty Level: Easy
Endurance Level: Medium
Region : Malshej
Cost : 900- per head
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. At the entrance to the Ghat is a big stone-made vessel like thing, in which coins as toll were put.
