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
, the group proceeded on by bus and got down at a place called Thokavade
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.
