In the night, the twinkling stars take over the sky and you’ll sleep in cosy alpine tents.
NOTE: This is a strenuous trek and is suggested for trekkers with some experience but it can also be undertaken by very fit beginners.
The Sandhan Valley is surrounded by some of the tallest peaks and forts in the Sahyadris, such as Alang, Madan, Kulang, Ratangad, Ajoba and Kalsubai, although you won't be able to see much of them once you're inside the valley. The steep walls of the gorge keep the sun out, and you'll be trekking in the cool, dim valley for most of the day.
