  • Trip introduction

    Get the thrilling experience of trekking and rappelling in the valley of shadows, the Sandhan Valley, with an easy, overnight itinerary from Pune. At the base village of Samrad, after learning how to pitch tents, you'll rest and enjoy the star-studded night with your fellow campers. The next morning, you'll begin the trek and go valley crossing over mountain tops and rappelling down the 80 feet tall cliffs at Sandhan Valley.

    Not too strenuous, this trek is perfect for those who are looking for an off-beat adventure on a short itinerary.

    Destination

    Located in the Sahyadri hills, the Sandhan Valley descends as deep as 200 feet between two mountain walls, stretching almost 2 kms in length. One of the largest canyons in Maharashtra, this water-carved valley, near the Bhandardara lake, is located in the Kalsubai Harishchandragad Wildlife Sanctuary. The valley is also known as the valley of shadows since the two towering mountain cliffs on either side of the valley block the sunlight from reaching the ground in several sections.

    Destination highlights

    • Go trekking in Sandhan Valley, the valley of shadows.
    • Enjoy a night of camping and stargazing at the base village.
    • Go rappelling down the 80 feet tall mountain wall of Sandhan Valley.
    • Explore trails and routes in the Kalsubai Harishchandragad Wildlife Sanctuary.
