  • Trip introduction

    The Andharban trek takes you through a forest with such thick green cover that very little sunlight seeps in, hence the name Andharban which means 'dark forest'. The unique feature of this trek is that is an entire descent trek, which makes it easy to do. However, all the rainwater gushes downhill with you, heading to the bottom of the valley. You will be walking alongside gushing streams and waterfalls, along a trail that is slippery with moss. This is a fun 13 km trek that ends at Bhira Dam.

    Destination

    Your trek will begin from Pimpri Dam. En route, you will pass Ghangad, Tailbaila, Sarasgad, Plus Valley, Tamhini Ghat, and the Kundalika Valley. You'll be trekking through thick forests, discovering natural ponds and small streams that you can stop to take a dip in, if you want. Thanks to the lush greenery, you'll see many rare butterflies and birds, and beautiful flowers all along.
