  • Trip introduction

    The Andharban trek takes you deep into the thick forests of the Sahyadris. Known for its rich tree cover, the sunlight hardly penetrates the trail of Andharban trek. During this trek, you’ll encompass beautiful sights of waterfalls, indigenous birds and glimpses of the gorgeous Kundalika Valley all the way till you reach Bhira Dam.

    With a non-strenuous trek route with just a few shards of sunlight to navigate your way, makes this trek exhilarating, especially for nature lovers. It offers city dwellers a perfect escape into the deeper crevices of Maharashtra’s lush beauty.
