With rapidly approaching summer, every trek seems like last trek till monsoon starts. So when I came across this event by Dongaryatra of night trek, I quickly grabbed it.
We started our journey from Kalyan station in a private vehicle towards base village Tokavade. We reached there at 2.30 am and started the trek with batteries in hand. It was very serene walking in a jungle under starry sky and various chirping sounds in background. Please do not make noise during night trek as it disturbs wild life.
Within 2-2.5 hrs of ascend with decent pace we reached at Naneghat caves. There are 2 caves on the top, one has door installed to it. In this cave, you'll see centuries old Bramhi lipi in both side walls. Also beware of snakes as cold temperature at night attracts them on rocks and caves.
After having short nap, we resumed our journey towards Jivdhan fort. Ascend is quite steep and will exhaust you quickly. In 1.5-2 hrs, you'll reach at Gomukhi door which will lead to Kalyan Door. Crossing this road, you'll reach top of fort. Left way will take you to pinnacle known as Vanarlingi Sulka. From there, you can do one full round of fort. On the way, you'll see many tanks, storage room, temple of goddess Jivai and other ruins of fort.
After exploring fort, we started descending and reached Tokavade village at around 2.30 pm. There we had a tasty lunch and moved to Mumbai with beautiful memories.

Located around 120kms from Mumbai, at about 55 km from Kalyan, Naneghat is a must visit place for trekkers. It would be best during monsoons time. However, a bunch of friends just decided to do a trek and short-listed on this location. We started early morning at 6:30am from Mumbai and reached around 10.15am after taking stop for breakfast and fruit shopping at Vaishakare village. We did not expect oranges to be our saviour as we were getting dehydrated frequently due to the weather conditions in Feb. We began our trek around 10:30am and due to frequent breaks for pictures and fruit breaks reached at the top around 2:00pm. Trek started with around 3km straight forward walk and got twisty as we were heading towards the caves. Talking about caves, the monkeys out there were disciplined. Though they came around to check for food, did not bother us much. In total its approx 6km trek, one way.

The view from the top was simply amazing, felt blessed by the nature!!

Tips:
Carry lot of water & Juicy fruits during summer time.

Our AAC Group Decided to trek this Beautiful Fort Naneghat during Monsoon August.Its' Must trek during Rainy season as it gives glimpse of lush green mountains small waterfalls at intervals and less tiring forest walk. The base village is Vaishakhare. We started our trail around early morning 9.a.m from base village and while taking some breaks in between we reached fort after 3-4 hrs. but was pleasant walk through forest as it was raining too we could not feel exhaustion.Carry lots of water or juices as it's long walk sometimes and you feel tired..
A must Trek during Monsoon. ( if You Are coming by car it is 150 kms form pune.

Naneghat (Nane = Coin, Ghat = pass) is a famous landmark near Malshej Ghat/Kalyan region. Vaishakhare is the base village. It is around 130 km from Pune. The road from Pune to Junnar is good but from Junnar to the base village is full of pot holes and really slows you down.

Accommodation Facility :
Nearly 20-25 persons can be accommodated at a time easily in the cave, which is the only place available for accommodation.

Food Facility :
We have to carry your own food.

Drinking Water Facility :
It would be better to carry your own water

Trek range: Medium

Time to climb: 3 hours

Naneghat is one of the most scenic routes to walk in. It has a large cave at the top where you can have rest while doing the night trek. Rivers, waterfalls are add-ons. Pond, well are other attractions.

If you are a beginner, you’ll find little difficult for this trek, but go for it!!! Fatty people, oldies try to avoid this trek. Naneghat doesn’t have valley so it’s pretty safe. The trek range is medium but during the monsoon it’s uncertain.

Night Trek is permitted at Naneghat. There are caves at the top. The route is easy & it’s impossible to get lost. Carry torch-light & avoid entering the forest. Mosquito repellant cream is highly recommended.

Costing:

Bus ticket: Rs 120 (Kalyan-Naneghat one-way. There is no official stop at Naneghat hence you have to buy next stop ticket)
Entry ticket: Rs 10
Food: Maggi 20 Rs, Poha 30 Rs, Vada Pav 10 Rs. Lunch plate 180 Rs
Rickshaw: Rs 200 per auto from Naneghat to Tokawade bus stop.

Pro tips:

1) As there is no official bus stop at Naneghat, you will have to get rickshaw till Tokawade bus station. This is cost-effective, Don’t worry because from Tokawade the bus ticket is 60 Rs.
2) The water streams have many crabs, frogs, snails & snakes too. Don’t go for the swimming at a dam.
3) Stay connected on the route. Naneghat itself is a short-cut. Do not find an alternative.
4) Naneghat is a perfect destination for Vlogging & photography.
If planning a night trek, make sure its full moon night as this route will be most beautiful at that night/
5) Tenting? Naneghat is the most suitable place. You can tent at the top. but there are many open lands at the base.
6) Don’t be insane to drink water from ponds. Carry minimum 3 water bottles with you. There are no stalls in between. Trust me on this!
7) The climate changes drastically here. Be ready for the freezy day at the top.
We planned to get a bus from the top but it’s a bad idea. The bus station is far away & the connectivity is less.

I had visited this place Aug'2015 on Saturday. Place itself is nice and offer 360 degree panoramic view. But crowd on weekends are not so good so families with kids & ladies will not feel comfortable. People are drinking and dancing in open. There is little trek which takes you to the top hill. if you want then you can do which is very steep & slippery while raining so should be avoided with small kids.

Roads:
Good thing is that you can drive up to the top. If you are travelling from Mumbai or Thane then there are two ways to reach Naneghat. One is shortcut which disjoints at "Madha" few killometers crossing after Malshej Ghat. This road goes through some remote villages. Road condition is not good. 90% of the road has no tar, only metal blocks. Road is so lonely, I hardly come across few vehicles in this ~25 KM stretch. If something goes wrong then you will be in big trouble as mobile signals are not there most of the time. If you search through google maps then it shows this route which in my opinion should be avoided.

Second road is through Junnar. Go straight after crossing Malshej Ghat and follow direction for Junnar. When you reach Junnar then at the circle with Shivaji Maharaj's statue, take right. It is ~25 KM longer than the previously mentioned but road condition is good and safe too. Time taken would be same on both the roads but second one is good and safe and you can enjoy the ride.

There are couple of options to eat and night accommodation there but safety is still a concern if you are with family.

If you really want to enjoy the place then I think visit on weekdays and reach early by 9:00 AM so you can enjoy for few hours and start return journey by 12 or 1 PM.

Naneghat hills till recent 2 decades was a unexplored natural place. Now people are bored of the crowded and commercial hill stations like Lonavla, Khandala, Mahabaleshwar, Matheran, so they are now interested in new natural places like naneghat.

Best place to visit is in monsoon ,with mist all around n surrounded with lush greenery. We had travelled by car and it takes around an hour to reach from malshej ghat , roads are good . Was less crowded on weekdays and with rains it had zero visibility that day. People trek to this place which I ve heard is worth doing. Come prepared with food and eatables as there are almost no option other than two kiosks selling wada pav n tea.
Worth visiting with family n kids

It was great experience visiting this place. It was the old toll gate road from Mumbai during 17th century. A lot historical information can be captured if a guided tour is done.

It was a good trek. Took about 2 hrs to ascend the peak via Naneghat staircase. Panoramic views from the top. The trek itself is at a low level of difficulty and can be done by first timers. Best time to do this trek is during the monsoon. You will get about 2-3 streams on the way. No waterfalls, though.
The only thing to be wary about is once you reach the top, there's a tar road coming from the opposite direction, so you might get unruly crowds. However, the police patrols are also active during the peak season.

A place of historical significance. I would recommend this trek for anyone.
