Required for participation: regular trekking and  walking ability.

 Age group: 15 to 55 years.

Sandhan Valley is a beautiful valley situated in the Western Ghats near Ratangad. Also known as the Valley Of Shadows (as the sun rays do not reach the insides of the major portion of the valley) , this naturally carved valley is 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.
Sandhan valley is a full descend trek, but the descend is not an easy walk. Completing the trek is more like a solving a boulder puzzle. Throughout the length of the valley we come across boulders ranging in sizes that we need to tackle as we proceed ahead. This trek cannot be done without technical assistance of certified professionals as there are 3 patches where you have to rappel down. A 45ft rappelling patch and 2 more patches where assistance is required only add to the thrill of the exploration.

Sandhan is not recommended for people who are not physically fit/active. We highly recommend to check the photos and video link provided below before registering for the trek.
