All About It
  • 1 Days 
  • Difficulty - Moderate

Naneghat is a trek like no other. Situated close to Murbad in Maharashtra, Naneghat used to be a route frequented by traders and travelers more than two centuries ago. It is the perfect trek for beginners and intermediate trekkers alike. On the way up, we will pass clear streams and beautiful forests with an opportunity to chance upon some mad flora and fauna. At the top, we'll witness history as if we had traveled back in time. Naneghat is a lovely mix of equal parts history, nature, and adventure.

Difficulty level: Moderate-Challenging
Base village: Naneghat
Summit height: 2,461 ft
Time taken to climb/descend: 3.5 hrs climb / 3 hrs descent
Duration: 1 day
Bus pickup points: Andheri Station East (5:45 am), Powai Lake (6:00 am), Thane Cadbury Junction (6:30 am)

Who should attend?

-There isn’t an age restriction on any of our experiences, everyone is welcome. However, the average Vagabond customer is anywhere between 20 – 35 years old. The experiences involve a good amount of time spent with the group. Depending on what experience you’re opting for, there could be a lot of walking and physical exertion

-It’s important to understand that most of our experiences include very rustic accommodation and not a luxurious means of transport. These may be basic in their facilities, but the hospitality is homely and comforting. If you’re someone who doesn’t like compromising on your comforts while travelling, this experience may not be very enjoyable

-Most of our trips have a healthy number of solo travellers. We encourage you to join us solo, especially if you’re tired of waiting on your friends. We promise you’ll return with many more

-We try our best to be responsible travellers. Everyone is welcome to explore with us, but we pay utmost importance to cleanliness on all our experiences. We encourage you to #LeaveNoTrace behind while you discover the beauty of the outdoors

-It’s important to understand that in a limited amount of time, only a limited amount of experiences can be had. We like to cover a few places in-depth rather than just ticking off a long list of things-to-do and places-to-go. However, if you are that kind of traveller, on almost all trips you can feel free to wander by yourself to places of your interest

-At a Vagabond Experience, it’s important to stay open-minded and positive when things don’t go as per plan. The essence of traveling in a group is being able to help each other out when in need. The weather could go bad, and plans could get altered. In such situations, we urge you to have faith in your group leader to make the most informed decision for the group.

05:45 am: Report outside Andheri Station East (or the pickup point of your choice) and board our private bus. We make our way toward the base village of Naneghat.
09:30 am: After a round of introductions, we make our way toward the hiking trail
12:30 pm: We will break for lunch on reaching the summit, or en route depending on our group's speed
03:00 pm: Once at the top, spend some time absorbing the beauty that is the Sahyadris. We will walk around and explore the other summits of the Naneghat area. We make our way back down the same route we climbed.
06:00 pm: We board our bus and head back to Bombay
10:30 pm: Adios! Back to the mundane city life. Until next time, Vagabonds!

Vagabond started out as a project by four friends with a disdain for the ordinary. The idea was simple; take people out of their comfort zones. Not like Roadies, but just enough to bond them together through beautiful and authentic experiences. Happiness, as they say, is only real when shared. And share we did. The company was founded in 2014. As fresh Bachelor of Arts degree holders, companies were lining up to hire us fine gentlemen; we’re kidding. Fueled by entrepreneurial zeal, we started with small events in the city like heritage walks through Bombay’s old quarters. As musicians and travellers ourselves, we decided to marry these two loves of our lives. That is how the idea for the first Fields of Sound™ came about. Since then, it has only been onward and upwards for us. Since 2014, we’ve made friends like family through our journey. Our little ‘Vaga’-Fam. It’s safe to say, it’s been quite an adventure. One we would like you to join :)

Frequest Questions

Q: How difficult is this trek?
A: Vagabond's trek to Naneghat would be graded as a 'Moderate-Difficult' level trek. Because we're climbing a mountain during the monsoons, it's slippery and gets challenging at certain parts. However, the view from the top is worth the climb

Q: What's Vagafam?
A: Vagafam is a loyalty discount for those who have joined us on a minimum of 3 experiences in the past. If you have travelled with us 3 times before, reach out to us and you can start availing of the Vagafam discount going forward.

Q: Are there any toilets where we trek?
A: Unfortunately not. The only toilet is at a canteen when we start the trek, after which there will be no bathroom facilities till we end the trek back at the base.

Q: Can I bring my dog?
A: We have had multiple trekkers in the past bring their dogs for our treks. However, a few things to keep in mind are... You will have to travel back and forth in your own private vehicle. There are stray dogs we'll encounter throughout the course of the trek.

Q: What about lunch?
A: As there is little or no way we can provide lunch on the trek, you are expected to carry your own packed lunch. We will, however, provide you with some lip-smacking breakfast at a local Maharashtrian dhaba before we start our climb.

Q: How do I get to the meeting point?
A: Our private bus will be picking you up from the following locations. Andheri Station East (5:45 am), Powai Lake (6:00 am), Thane Cadbury Junction (6:30 am). Please DO NOT be late, as our journey to the Naneghat base is close to 4 hours long. We will provide you with breakfast on the way.

Q: Can first time trekkers join?
A: For those of you who haven't trekked before, don't worry, we at Vagabond encourage you to take your time and have a great experience climbing with us. A Vagabond trek isn't about speed, it's about the group experience. For those of you who have trekked before, we encourage you to encourage the beginners and help them through the way.

Q: Any trekking tips?
A: Please make sure you have good rain gear to protect yourself and your bag from getting wet. Please wear sturdy closed footwear with a good grip and one that won't tear. Do not carry sling bags or any bag that dangles. Try keeping your hands free at all times.
