Sandhan valley is a beautiful carved valley in magnificent
Sayhadri mountain range, which is part of Western Ghats in Maharashtra.
Surrounded with mighty and jaw-dropping mountains of Ratangad and Kalsubai, the
valley stands at the height of 4255 ft high above sea level, which is the
perfect spot for trekking and other adventure activities. The trek goes through
200 ft deep and 2 km long gorge carved by water between the narrow walls. The
adventurous part of the trek kicks in when we are left to rappel down the 100 ft
rocky patch with the help of experienced guides and equipment. Unlike all treks,
we descend down in valley on the first day and climb up the next day. We camp in
the valley and while descending, we have to rappel down at 3 spots.
This trek is not for people who want to give up halfway!
