Junnar, 17th July 2023: Over the weekend, on Saturday, July 15th, and Sunday, July 16th, Naneghat, a historical site, witnessed a surge in monsoon tourism as more than six thousand tourists braved the thick fog, cold winds, and falling rain in the deep valley.

According to the Joint Forest Management Committee at Ghatghar, a total of 1,950 vehicles, including 1,092 two-wheelers and 858 four-wheelers, were registered at the check post in Nahargaon. These vehicles transported around six thousand six hundred and fifty-seven tourists to Naneghat. A sum of 66,570 rupees was collected as nuisance fees from the tourists.

Range Forest Officer Pradeep Chavan mentioned that this revenue would provide employment opportunities for the youth of the village and contribute to the upkeep of biodiversity while ensuring a plastic-free area.

The popularity of Naneghat as a tourist destination during the monsoon season continues to grow. The British-era Phadke Dam, located in the area, is currently overflowing, attracting tourists who enjoy the sparkling white water flowing from the steps below the dam. The streams in the vicinity are also brimming with water. Visitors from Pune, Mumbai, Thane, Nashik, and Ahmednagar are increasingly drawn to the scenic environment, with the lush paddy fields filled with water.

Due to the high influx of vehicles, tourists experienced traffic jams at various points along the Aptale to Naneghat road. Ghatghar sarpanch Manoj Nangre, ex-sarpanch Popat Raote, PESA president Anil Raote, and Tantamukti president Raghu Raote have jointly demanded road widening measures to prevent vehicles from getting stuck in the mud on the roadside.

To manage the situation, the Joint Forest Management Committee implemented nuisance charges starting from July 5th. As part of the regulations, the consumption of alcohol was prohibited in the Ghatghar area, and security guards were appointed to maintain order. Strict vigilance is being maintained to ensure that tourists are not disturbed by unruly individuals.

Despite the challenging weather conditions, Naneghat remains a popular choice among tourists seeking a monsoon getaway, showcasing the enduring allure of this historical site.
