User Experience

The Ghoti Igatputi region near Nashik is like Cherrapungi of Maharashtra. The place of Igatpuri is also known as the place of fog and mist. And the mountain range of Mhalunga is extremely beautiful. Starting towards Mhalunga, there is a temple of Goddess seen on a height at the left The temple and the surroundings are maintained by the villagers and are very neat and clean. Adjoining it is a pathway which goes to the top of Mhalunga. Mhalunga is divided into two parts. This is known as ‘Chota’ Mhalunga meaning small and another mountain beyond this towards the West is the ‘Motha’ Mhalunga meaning big. The top of Mhalunga is covered with grass and trees and spreads East-West. Towards the right are the mountains of varying heights grabbing attention. Amongst them are Kavanai, Budhya and Ishwara which can be easily identified. The entire surrounding is dressed in greenery. There are two ways to go on the Motha Mhalunga, a patch with rock climbing of around 35 feet or by a pathway besides it. From the top the view is breathtaking. To the West of Tringalwadi and the adjoining dam. Towards the South is Dhammagiri which looks completely green. To the North is Dhoriaand Budhya mountain and to the East are Mordhan and Kalsubai.
