Naneghat Pass - This sheer cliff is a well know landmark, very clearly visible from Konkan region as you pass on your way from Kalyan towards Malshej. The walls of this pass jut out from the main range and hence command a magnificent view of the great bend in the Sahyadri. This is a pass, which once in history, enjoyed prime importance. The inscriptions, the steps, the rock-cut rest houses, and the cisterns all point out the historic fact that this route was frequently used as far back as the 1st century B.C. The Naneghat area and the caves are now very popular due to an easy access from Malshej ghat road.
Serving as a trade route for the transport between markets of Kalyan, Nalasopara (Konkan) and Junnar (Plateau) since the times of Satvahanas, this pass today offers you one of the most enjoyable treks in the vicinity of Mumbai
NaneGhat is situated at about 55 Km from Kalyan. One can reach the base village Vaishakare by boarding the state transport bus passing through MalshejGhat. From Vaishakare it's about 1/2 a hour walk along the road to MalshejGhat to reach the divergence for NaneGhat.
