Chawand Fort & Naneghat Caves Trek

Chawand Fort
1 Day

Event Overview

Chawand is a hill fort located at around 30kms from Narayangaon in the Junnar region of Maharashtra. Difficulty level for trekking is moderate and it takes just an hour to get to the top of the fort. Ideal for a one day trek or even for an overnight trek. The surrounding region of this fort is just awesome and you will get to see flora and fauna at its best.

Naneghat is a mountain pass in the Western Ghats range near Junnar in Pune district of Maharashtra, India. The pass was extensively used as a trade route between Kalyan and Junnar. This was the most important trade route, as it connected harbour of Sopara and Kalyan directly to Junnar and Paithan. The name nane means “coin” and ghat means “pass”.The name is given because this path was used as a tollbooth to collect toll from traders crossing the hills. While going through Malshej Ghat, we can easily get a glimpse of Naneghat after Murbad. The significantly shaped thumb-like peak and the pinnacle of Vanarlingi are the most distinctly seen spots.
