Naneghat Trek

#Trekking
Located at: Junnar
Maharashtra, India

Naneghat is a famous mountain pass in the Sahyadri Mountain Ranges near Junnar.
It is a relatively easy trek, making it ideal for beginners or the first timers. It’s a simple uphill route on neatly man made rock cut stairs. What makes it out of the ordinary is that during monsoon one gets to traverse it with a gushing waterfall engulfing the legs as one climbs up.
The highlight of this trek will be the ancient cave, said to be commissioned by a woman ruler Naganika, probably to serve as a resting place for the traders who used this route.
The route was once an ancient trade route which was in extensive use to transport goods arriving at the Junnar which was then a flourishing marketplace. The locals are still found using this pass to reach Konkan.
Best time to go for trekking is June to December.

Visit Shivneri Fort in Junnar

Shivneri Fort

Shivneri Fort is one of the most magnificent as well as historically rich forts of India. It is situated at a distance of 2.5 km from the Junnar, Maharashtra. The fort dates back to the time period when Shivaji was not even born yet. Almost the entire childhood of Shivaji was spent playing inside the compound of the fort. Apart from its connection with Chhatrapati Shivaji, the fort is also quite popular for its surround architecture. To make the Shivneri Fort enemy proof, Shahaji ordered the construction of seven massive gates. One has to go through all the seven to gain entrance into the fort. Badami Talav, a small pond situated in the heart of the fort, is one of its most endearing features. In the vicinity of the pond is a magnificent statue of Jijabai, along with her son Shivaji. Amongst them is a temple dedicated to Goddess Shivani. The local people of the area believe that Shivaji was named so, after the Goddess only.
