Best time to visit:
November to February is the best time to visit Sandhan Valley. The weather is cool and dry in the winter season. Summers can be very hot, while it rains heavily during monsoons, making it challenging to navigate through the valley.
A camping package with a tour-planner may cost you about Rs 350 inclusive of food. If you plan to visit the valley yourself, a round trip from Mumbai/ Nashik / Pune might cost you anything between Rs 2000 and 4000.
