• Trip introduction

    Take a trek into the most mysterious forest of Maharashtra. The word Andharban means dark forest, and that's a thrilling thought! The trail is so densely forested that it stays dim and misty even during the day. The best time to visit is in the monsoon, when all the pools are full and waterfalls dot the hills around.

    This trek is unusual because it descends into the forest instead of going up, and it has a rock-hewn path most of the way. But don't be fooled into thinking that this is an easy trek. The path can be slippery, and there are spots that you'll have to climb over very carefully.


    Enjoy a trek into a rainy wilderness. Set in Mulshi near Pune, the Andharban trail is a beautiful one, full of wildlife, birds, and tropical flowers. Look out for spectacular views from the vantage points along the route. There are numerous streams and clear pools, so you can take a dip if you like.
