About Ahupe Ghat ::
Ahupe Ghat in the Malshej region near to Gorakhgad and Siddhagad. Ahupe Ghat is a pass leading from Khopiwali in the Konkan, to Ahupe village in the Ghats. The Ghat drops vertically to the Konkan all around Ahupe, and there are many narrow gorges, with breathtaking drops. the route from Khopiwali to Ahupe, near its upper reaches, is very narrow, and almost a gorge.
Ahupe village is very picturesque. 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.
