A descending trek between the great canyon mountains of Sahyadri range, a mystic valley of shadows - SANDHAN VALLEY!
We started our journey from Mumbai to explore this mesmerising valley on our reliable Honda Dio. In a world full of people riding on RE/KTM, our Dio shines. Well, its just how the rider rides his vehicle matters.
So, we began early morning fresh right on schedule taking a route from Thane - Kalyan - Shahapur according to Google Maps. The weather was just pleasant and whilst enjoying the always beautiful sunrise, we reached Shahapur before time.
We couldn't be happier, so we took a halt. Since we were travelling to Sandhan Valley for the first time, we referred google maps to reach Samrad Village. So we went on to a route where it was from a rural area which was full of twists and turns. Since it was such a perfect weather, we didn't bother and started from Shahapur, riding through small villages, twists and turns just couldn't stop. However, looking at such green environment, we went on and on exploring new village with each passing by. Locals were just so much fascinated looking at us with camera mounted on the helmet, such a small vehicle having two bags tied at the back, two humans stupidly dressed :p. We, then reached Saralgaon, thats when we took a halt for breakfast since we were still on time. Locals did not have any clue about the village Samrad. According to maps, we were just around 20km away from Samrad so we thought of following it religiously, then went on to Ghatghar looking at such scenic view, we couldn't take our eyes off the roads and the beautiful mountains.
