While you are working away to get that perfect body, sweating inside the confines of a gym
or the polluted concrete jungles of the city, there is a whole world of hiking terrains outside
Mumbai, which if treaded upon can give you epic results to what your body & mind can
endure and achieve. Thanks to the uphill terrain, trekking & hiking burn up to an amazing 300
calories an hour! Each trek is bound to burn 1000+ calories!
Andharban , meaning dense dark forest, is a hub of wanderlust which lie right here in the
Sahyadris and it offers amazing scenic beauty for the trekkers as it can be explored only on
foot. The whole descend trek of 13 km takes almost 4 hours to complete. The trek takes one
through beautiful patches of greenery, innumerable waterfalls and a majestic view of the
river Kundalika seen from the ridge found inside the jungle. During monsoons the whole
forest transforms itself into a natural paradise. Colorful flowers bloom everywhere, many
different species of butterflies fly around and streams of rain water form natural waterfalls
along the side of the ridge.
