Exploring Malshej Ghat & Trek to Shivneri Fort on 31st July 2016
Malshej Ghat : This region comprises the stretch of the Sahyadris from Harishchandragad in the north to Bhimashankar in the south. There are three passes for motor vehicles travelling from Mumbai to the Deccan plateau. These are the Thal Ghat in the north (from Kasara to Igatpuri), the Malshej Ghat in the middle (from Thitbi to Khubi) and the Bhor Ghat in the south (from Karjat to Khandala, or Khopoli to Khandala). Trains also ply along the Thal and the Bhor Ghat but not along the Malshej Ghat. Hence this region is rather remote. The only way of travelling to this region is by bus from Kalyan, via Murbad.
A trek in the Malshej Ghat region offers a unique feeling of remoteness and wildness, maybe because this region is less frequented by trekkers. All along the Konkan, the average drop in these mountains is about 900m, and the drops are rather steep. Amazing views can be got from the top of the mountains, of both the Konkan plains, as well as nearby and distant peaks and valleys. But because of less frequent transport connections, one should be careful about the first and last bus.
Shiveneri : This fort is one of the historically important forts as it was the birthplace of Shivaji who lived here till the age of five when the fort has handed back to the Mogul rulers from the Deccan. It has a huge arch at the entrance and many well preserved fortifications. It looks over the town of JUNNAR (3 Kms)
