Nane Ghat is situated at about 55 Km from Kalyan. This sheer cliff is a well-known land mark, very clearly visible from the Kokan. The walls of this pass just out from the main range and hence command a magnificient view of the great bend in the sahyadri. To the north one can have a view of Kalsubai, to the south Bhimashanker, to the north east is Harishchandragad and to the north west is Mahuli across the Kokan plains, with its cleft and shatered pinnacles. To the southwest, behind Siddhagad are seen the level tops of Matheran. The great comb-like rock of chanderi and the pinnacles of Haji Malang are also visible. Serving as a trade route for the transport between markets since the times of Satvahanas, this pass today offers you one of the most enjoyable treks in the vicinity of Mumbai.
