  • Trip introduction

    Sandhan Valley is a canyon in the Sahyadri, also known as the Valley of Shadows. Located in between two high walls of rock and mountain, the sides of the canyon are so narrow that even sunlight makes brief appearances.

    This 200-feet deep valley was carved by water, and is flanked by the massive forts of Alang, Madan and Kulang, amongst others.

    There is no ascent during this trek - instead it takes you along the valley floor for about 7 hours. There may be some amount of rock-climbing or rappelling involved in this trek.

    Destination

    The Western Ghats or Sahyadri are a World Heritage Site, famed for the ecological diversity. With thousands of flora and fauna species exclusive to this region, any trek through this area involves plenty of interaction with nature.

    This trek takes us along the floor of the Sandhan Valley, past naturally formed rock ponds filled with clear water, and towering rock faces on either side.

    Destination highlights
