  • Trip introduction

    Trek down into the depths of a deep, dim forest that is dotted with waterfalls and streams. The monsoon is the perfect time to embark on a trek to Andharban, named after the darkness (even during the day) that is caused by the tall evergreen trees that block out the sunlight.

    A unique ecosystem thrives in the dimly lit Andharban, offering you a memorable adventure trek. The trail is not a difficult one, as it begins from an altitude and descends gradually into the forest, but it can get very slippery, so watch your step.

    Destination

    The Andharban forest is filled with tropical flowers, tall trees, and lots of birds and butterflies. During the monsoon, the rain water flows downward into the valley, creating waterfalls and pools all along the trekking route. You'll trek to Andharban along a ridge and pass numerous viewpoints, so look out for views of the Kundalika Valley, as well as Bhira dam and the Tamhinighat mountains.

    Destination highlights

    • Embark on a trek to Andharban, a unique dark forest.
    • Take advantage of an easy descent trail on one of Maharashtra's most unusual treks.
    • Climb over rocky patches and across streams, waterfalls and ponds.
    • Photograph some beautiful views from vantage points along the way.
