Igatpuri (near Nasik) is a small village which falls on the way to Nashik and is the first place after crossing the Thal Ghat. It is located at a height of 1900 feet above sea level. Yet it is known to the people only as a major railway junction.
The beauty of “GANAKA VALLEY VIEW MOTEL” is still untouched. Mornings are greeted by magnificent sunrise, when the skies are painted with hues of gold, orange and yellow. The grass is wet with morning dew and birds begin their song.
Far much cooler than other hill stations of this area such as Khandala, this land boasts of many places of tourist interest, within and on the outskirts of the village.
