  • Trip introduction

    Embark on a thrilling night trek to Andharban that will lead you through dense forests and narrow nature trails. On this trek, you will hike through the mountainous wilderness under the night sky and experience the nocturnal beauty of the Sahyadri mountain ranges. Known for its photogenic beauty, this trek will lead you through hilly ridges that offer you unmatched views of the Kundalika Valley, Bhira Dam and the mountains of Tamhinighat.

    During this trip, you will trek throughout the night and reach Bhira in the morning. Take breaks at intervals to rest in the shade of trees and admire the night-time view of mountains painted across the dark sky. This is a relatively easy trek that is perfect for beginners as well as experienced trekkers.

    Destination

    As Andharban literally translates to ‘dark forest’, it is only fitting that this trek takes place entirely in the dense forests of the Sahyadri mountain ranges under the dark shadow of the night sky. You will trek on a stunning route that gradually descends from Tamhinighat to Bhira. Along the way, astounding views of the silhouetted mountains of the Sahyadri will accompany you. The rich greenery covering your route is marked by wild flowers that attract several butterflies and other birds. Your route will also take you across several monsoon-fed river streams and ponds that offer a chance to take a quick dip or relax by the water.
