Dear Trekkers and Routine Breakers,
Another Thrilling Monsoon trek with Outdoor Adventure Management & this time its “NANEGHAT” via Singapur village on 17th July 2016 in Malshej region.
About Naneghat :
This trek is a PASS, which once in history, enjoyed prime importance. The pass was mainly used by traders and is the shortest route to descend down to KONKAN (Kalyan port) from the Deccan Plateau. At Naneghat the inscriptions, the steps, the rock-cut rest houses, and the cisterns show that as far back as the 1st century B.C. A huge pot located on top plateau towards the entrance is said that it used to be a JAKAT NAKA (Toll) where traders placed SWARNA MOHOR (Gold coin) to gain access to the road. The inscriptions in the caves indicate work of Satavahana rulers who came into prominence after the fall of Mauryan Empire. The Naneghat records have proved very important in establishing the history of the region. Vedic Gods like Yama (Hinduism) Indra, Chandra and Surya are mentioned here. The mention of Samkarsana and Vasudeva indicate the prevalence of Bhagavata form of Hinduism in the Satavahana dynasty
