  • Trip introduction

    Maharashtra’s dense, dark forest Andharban trek takes you on a mystical trail through the Sahyadris. This trek is a full descent trek, so won't have you puffing and panting, but it's still a challenge. You'll walk through a forest that is so thick that it's always dim here, hence the name 'Andharban' or 'dark forest'. Cross water streams, clamber over mossy stones, and navigate slippery trails with waterfalls gushing down on all sides. You be descending all the way, to emerge near Bhira dam, with splendid views of the Kundalika river.

    Destination

    The Andharban trek is a monsoon must-do in Maharashtra! The unique light conditions in the forest allow a rich biodiversity, so you can expect to see wildflowers, rare butterflies, and plenty of birds here. You'll also come across many natural pools and ponds to take a quick dip in.

    • Cross fabulous water streams and take dips in natural pools on your trail.
