Trek to Naneghat

8.00pm, 24 June 2002

This years Kresit Trek season started rolling yesterday, 23rd june '02, with mtech01 guys going on a trek to Naneghat. A group of eleven enthu guys started out from the Kresit stairs at around 5:45 am. The group caught the ever reliable mumbai local and got down at Kalyan after about 45 mins. After having one or two cuts of kadak chai , the group proceeded on by bus and got down at a place called Thokavade which many inexperienced trekkers thought to be a place quite close to the actual trekking point. But it turned out to be a walk of around an hour and the group thoroughly enjoyed the walk in the rain. Then came the turning point, into the jungle towards the actual trekking point. After another long walk (but shorter then the one on the highway) in the jungle, actual ascent started. It took about 2 hours to get to the peak with a break for finishing up all the grub carried by the guys. It was raining most of the time. The view was simply superb from different points during the ascent. It got very cloudy at the peak so much so that one was not able to see another standing only a few meters away. The view from there was simply breathtaking. The calm that filled the area at the peak would forever be etched in the minds of everyone present at the time. One could even listen one talking to himself. After that experience, it makes one feel that we are unnecessarily lost in too much noise these days. After that memorable experience, everybody started back and the group reached IIT at around 8 pm in the evening. Overall, a great start to the trekking season in the department.
