Overview
More
Sandhan valley is a beautiful carved valley in magnificent Sayhadri mountain range, which is part of Western Ghats in Maharashtra. Surrounded with mighty and jaw-dropping mountains of Ratangad and Kalsubai, the valley stands at the height of 4255 ft high above sea level, which is the perfect spot for trekking and other adventure activities. The trek goes through 200 ft deep and 2 km long gorge carved by water between the narrow walls. The adventurous part of the trek kicks in when we are left to rappel down the 100 ft rocky patch with the help of experienced guides and equipment. Unlike all treks, we descend down in valley on the first day and climb up the next day. We camp in the valley and while descending, we have to rappel down at 3 spots. This trek is not for people who want to give up halfway! Entry to Sandhan Valley is Free, people who are just visitors and not prepared for the hike are recommended to not venture beyond the water pond. While on the trek, its must to carry Sleeping bag, sleeping mat, Food, you should be accomapnied by professional guides with rope equipment for rappelling and anchoring at few spots. We can arrange a trek for you to Sandhan Valley with the full package ie: Professional Guide, Climbing equipement, tents, sleeping bags, food etc.

Amazing trek. Very close to Igatpuri. you can travel by bus or train from Mumbai as well as Pune Although, from Pune you need to come to Mumbai by train to take another train from Mumbai to Kalsubai.
