  • Trip introduction

    Sandhan Valley is a canyon in the Sahyadris, also known as the Valley of Shadows because, in some places, the sides narrow so much that sunlight cannot enter.

    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 Sahyadris are a World Heritage Site, famous for the ecological diversity here. With thousands of flora and fauna species exlcusive 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, with towering mountains on both sides.
