Monsoon One day trek to Ahupe Ghat with VRangers on 7th July 2013.

Ahupe village is very picturesque, with a lake and an irrigation system. It looks like a remote hamlet because on one side, is the steep drop to the Konkan, and on the remaining three sides, there is a mountain range enclosing it, cutting it off from the Deccan plateau proper.

Region: Murbad

Height: 850 m (aprx.)

Grade: Medium.

Base Village: Khopivali

Last Date for Registration: - 4th July 2013.

Cost: Rs. 400/- (which includes traveling from Kalyan to kalyan by local vehicle, breakfast, eve refreshment).

About Ahupe Ghat:

Ahupe Ghat is a pass leading from Khopiwali in the Konkan, to Ahupe village in the Ghats. Ahupe village is at a height of about 850m. The Ghat drops vertically to the Konkan all around Ahupe, and there are many narrow gorges, with breathtaking drops.

Thus to go from Ahupe to the Deccan plateau proper, one has to cross these hills which are about 200m higher than Ahupe. The route is like most stretches, and climbs up steeply. It can be a little slippery during the monsoons for the uninitiated.
