Programs > Christmas Vacation > Sandhan Valley Trek

Tucked away in the Sahyadri mountains, near Samrad village in the Bhandardara region of Maharashtra is this beautiful valley called “Sandhan Valley”. The Sandhan Valley is one of the greatest canyon in the Western Ghats. It is a water-carved narrow, rock floored valley, 200ft deep and about 1.5 Km long located between the two high walls of the mountain range. With a width of less than 3ft at places, the sun rays don’t reach the floor of the valley, and hence it is also known as the “Valley of Shadows”.
Sandhan Valley is a delight for trekkers and treats you with amazing views. The trek is a unique experience combining adventure activities such as rappelling, trekking and camping. One of the sections of the trek to Sandhan Valley requires you to rappel down tens of feet. You also need to jump from boulder to boulder and navigate on a rocky terrain as you traverse through the valley. The overnight stay under the canopy of stars will also become a memorable experience. The highest peak of the entire Sahyadris, The Kalsubai at 5400ft, lies close to the Sandhan Valley.
