Andharban Trek, Jungle Trek - Monsoon Trek From Mumbai
Andharban Trek, by its name, means a dark, dense forest. It is a gradual descend trek, where you are already on height, and you will descend till the end. It is one of the most beautiful treks in Maharashtra and has lots of things to explore. We will be walking on a ridge offering a fantastic view of the Kundalika Valley, Bhira dam, Devkund Waterfall, and the mountain ranges of Tamhini ghat. Evergreen forest covers you with shade in the first half of the trek for 6 to 8 kilometers. The Trek to Andharban further descends in Konkan to reach Bhira village around 4 kilometers. The same valley is the origin of the Kundalika river, famous for its white water Kolad river rafting.
