Dark Forest

Andharban is one of the most refreshing treks in the Sahyadri mountain region. The name ‘Andharban’ is a compound word, coming from Andhar, meaning ‘dark’, and ban, which means ‘forest’. Literally the ‘dark forest’, Andharban is a trail through dense overgrowth, with beautiful views of the Kundalika valley and the Tamhini Ghat along the way. Scattered throughout with numerous small streams and waterfalls. (Water streams are available in Monsoon season only.)

It is a descending trek – it begins at an elevation of approximately 2,160 feet in the Sahyadri mountains and descends down into the valley, to reach the backwaters of the Bhira Dam.

Andharban is open all year round, but the best time to visit would be the monsoon, and the post-monsoon period, when dense fog settles down in the forest, and everything is fresh and green.
