For some, Anjaneri is unquestionably the birth place of Lord Hanuman, The Indian Monkey God, who is a central character in one of the great Hindu Epics â?? Ramayana. The Anjaneri Mountain is very close to Nashik and lies on the very famous Nashik â?? Trimbakeshwar highway. This trek is located in the beautiful and hilly terrain of Anjaneri Hills- which are also a part of the Sahyadri Range. The base village is called Anjaneri Village and is about 20 Kilometers from Nashik. The trek is easy and takes about two or three hours. The best season to do this trek is during the Monsoons when everything is green. There is a temple dedicated to â??Anjanaâ?? Devi, - Hanumanâ??s mother, hence the name â?? Anjaneri. The plateau is full of small lakes which look mesmerizing during the rainy season. As expected, (Hanumanâ??s father Pavan, a Hindu deity, is the Lord of the winds), it is very windy up on the plateau. One can easily spend a couple of hours exploring the fort, the nearby waterfall and the temple. The trek is a one day trek and is ideal for combining it with Nashik and Sula Wines.
