Lying in the heart of the Sahayadri Mountains, this water carved valley is in a secluded portion of the Indian state. Located on the Western Ghats, tourists experience the time of their life as they cross the water pool here which is at least four to six feet deep. You are to descend the water slope with three rapelling patches if you wish to enjoy Sandhan Valley to the full.

A wonderful form of nature with the background of the Western Ghats, this is one paradise situated on the western side of another beautiful region Bhandardhara. Ranges like Alang Madan and Kulang, Kalsubai, Ratangad and Ajoba are the trekking destinations here. The Alang Madan and Kulang are said to be the toughest mountains to trek upon. As you come here trekking up, the deep narrow ravine with rocks on the floor would enthrall you completely. Many places here are less than three feet wide thus preventing sun rays from reaching the interiors totally. So it is rightfully called the Valley of Shadows.

One can visit this region throughout the year except the monsoons, as it is dangerous due to the rains. Treks here culminate with a panoramic and memorable view from the top.
