WE ARE BACK! After organizing 4 successful batches in the past 4 months, we are back again with the famous SANDHAN VALLEY ADVENTURE.
It's true what they say about trekking at Sandhan, you can't get enough of the place. Also known as The Valley Of Shadows, it is a beautiful valley situated in the Western Ghats near Ratangad. Amidst the water lies this carved valley 200 feet deep and approximately 2kms long. Located near beautiful Bhandardara region, it is also surrounded by Alang, Madan, Kulang, Kalsubai, Ratangad and Ajoba forts. The base village itself is located at a height of approximate 3000 ft.
The usual trek that happens mostly in winters takes you through the entire length of the valley (Through Samrad village and via Dehene village) is an experience in itself with 3 rappelling patches.
This time though, we will be walking through the valley till the first water pool can be seen and to its immediate left we will be taking the route which will take us to the 120ft mighty rappelling patch. This is an ideal trek to do during summer given the intense heat these days. Throughout the day, the valley provides a pleasant climate for trekkers and hikers (It is called Valley of Shadows for a reason!)
