  • Trip introduction

    The Sandhan Valley trek is a thrilling, overnight adventure near Mumbai that combines the fun of trekking, camping and rappelling. You'll begin by trekking amidst dense forests with flowing waterfalls, rivers and lakes all around you. En route, you'll encounter sections on the trail where you'll go rappelling down ravines between two mountain cliffs as high as 200 feet. In the evening, you'll stay in tents that are pitched with scenic views of the valley and enjoy a fun night with your fellow trekkers.

    Destination

    Sandhan Valley, located in the Sahyadri range, is a water-carved valley with mountain cliffs rising so high that they block out the sunlight in certain sections of the valley, giving the valley it's nickname of the 'valley of shadows'. The valley is of immense interest to adventure junkies for the rappelling sections that trekkers encounter during the trek. With thick and overgrown forests, especially in the months of monsoon, the trek itself is a pleasant and nature-rich experience.
