Naneghat is one of the ancient trade routes connecting Konkan & Ghat, existing right from the Satvahanas, and was in extensive use to transport goods arriving at the Junnar which was then a flourished market place. 100's of years gone but still villagers at the ghat area use this pass to reach konkan. This pass once served a vital trade route between Kalyan and Junnar. Naneghat trek is simple and enjoyable. Way passes through dense teakwood forests. Literally, the name nane means “coin” and ghat means “pass”. The name is given because this path was used as a tollbooth to collect toll from traders crossing the hills.
Main attractions : i) Ancient Caves ii) Huge pot used to collect tax, iii) Thumb shaped mountain peak.
