 Location

Nane Ghat as seen from the highwayServing 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

Nane Ghat is situated at about 55 Km from Kalyan. One can reach the base village Vaishakare by boarding the state transport bus passing through Malshej Ghat. From Vaishakare it's about 1/2 a hour walk along the road to Malshej Ghat to reach the divergence for Nane Ghat. Now there is board indicating the divergence so there will be no difficulty in finding the divergence. Once a divergence is taken, it is about 2-3 hours climb to the summit.

 
 Precaution
Take sufficient amount of water when you leave Vaishakare as there is no water in the way till you reach the top. If you are visiting in non-monsoon season it's advisable to carry an anti-dehydrate.
