  • Trip introduction

    Trek down into the depths of a deep, dim forest that is dotted with waterfalls and streams. The monsoon is the perfect time to visit the Andharban, named after the darkness (even during the day) that is caused by the tall evergreen trees that block out the sunlight.

    A unique ecosystem thrives in this dimly lit region, offering you a memorable adventure trek. The trail is not a difficult one, as it begins from an altitude and descends gradually into the forest, but it can get very slippery, so watch your step.

    Destination

    The Andharban forest is filled with tropical flowers, tall trees, and lots of birds and butterflies. During the monsoon, the rain water flows downward into the valley, creating waterfalls and pools all along the trekking route. You'll trek along a ridge and pass numerous viewpoints, so look out for views of the Kundalika Valley, as well as Bhira dam and the Tamhinighat mountains.

    Destination highlights

    • Trek down into a unique dark forest
    • Take advantage of an easy descent trail on one of Maharashtra's most unusual treks
    • Climb over rocky patches and across streams
    • Photograph some beautiful views from vantage points
