Naneghat Trek-Trekking Along History
Naneghat is a mountain pass in the Western Ghats range near Junnar which is situated at an elevation of 2600 feet from the ground in the Thane district. The trek is famous more for its ancient pass than for the fort itself. Most of the fortifications have crumbled down, but some of the inscriptions on the caves still remain in praise of the rulers who built them.
There are a number of water tanks and reservoirs around the place. The fort has a number of artificial caves and the famous Naneghat pass with huge rock walls on either side. Inscriptions describe achievements and stories of valour frozen in time. These records have helped historians to establish the historical past of this region. There is a temple of Ganesha on the other side of the pass. A huge rock-cut pot was used presumably to collect coins from the traders passing by place. The pinnacle of the fort is shaped like a thumb, and is known popularly as 'Nancha Angtha'.
