Sandhan Valley 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. Along with breathtaking sights, Sandhan Valley also offers adventure seekers a chance to rappel down patches to reach its base.
