Some basic information about the trek is as follows:
Andhar means Darkness and Ban stands for dense jungle, so the word Andharban means, Dense Dark Forest. The fascinating thing of this trek is 13km long trek has to be the hardcore jungle cover over your head. A major portion of this trek route involves walking through this dense and dark forest. The start point of this trek i.e. Pimpri dam begins in bright daylight which keeps on fluctuating as we keep entering the dense part of the forest and out, this only adds up to the magic that this place has to offer. The trek concludes at yet another dam called the Bhira dam which is also the source of the Kundalika river which is famous for its White Water Rafting. Almost one third of the trek is constant descendand the rest is a normal trail walking. While on the route we can see various landmark trek spots like Ghangad, Tailbaila, Sarasgad, Plus Valley, Tamhini Ghat, Kundalika valley.
