If you've done a few treks in the Sahyadris and are looking for something different, this day trek to Naneghat is perfect for you. The route takes you through a mountain pass in the Western Ghats, so expect rocky trails, clouds of mist caught between peaks, and strong winds. The trail can get very slippery in patches, and if it's raining, you'll be walking up as rainwater flows down the path, under your shoes. This is a must-do monsoon trek for adventure buffs!
There are stunning views from the summit, and you'll build up a good appetite for lunch. Breakfast, lunch and snacks are included in this package.
