Night Trek to Andharban Forest
Grade: Medium | Endurance: High | Altitude: 2,100 feet Approx
This weekend, lose yourself in nature by venturing into a dark, dense forest. Night trekking in a dark jungle is a thrilling experience that you’ve got to try at least once! At Andharban, you will experience the wilderness of the jungle in a way that never fails to tempt trek-lovers. Uncover the mysteries of this wonderful dark forest and allow nature to impress you, for a never before experience!
Imagine yourself in the middle of a dark jungle, finding the route, towering over valleys and crossing ghats… Sounds adventurous?? Yeah!!!! You’ll be doing all this and more at Andharban – The Dark Forest Trek. This trek majorly consists of descending from the peak. It is one of the most stunning treks in the Konkan region and there are lots of things to explore. You will be walking on a ridge that gives an scintillating view of the Kundalika Valley below, the Bhira dam and the various mountain ranges of Tamhini ghat. While you’re trekking, the dense, evergreen forests will cover you with their relaxing shade almost throughout first half of the trek (6-8 kms), surprising you with waterfalls every now and then! The trail then starts to descend down a rocky patch to reach Bhira (4 kms). This valley happens to be the origin of the Kundalika river, which is famous for its white water river rafting and other adventure activities!
