The Dark Forest – Andharban Trek!


Andhar means Darkness and Ban stands for dense jungle, so the word Andharban literally means The Dense Dark Forest.
The intimidating factor of this 13 km long trek has to be the hardcore jungle cover over your head.
A major portion of this trek route involves walking through this denseness.
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.

With the onset of monsoons, this trail becomes a denser and greener, with waterfalls all along. Best suited during monsoons and winters, this trek can also be done in summer.

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. 30% of the trek is all descend and remaining is normal walking.
While on the route we can see the beauty of places like Ghangad, Tailbaila, Sarasgad, Plus valley, Tamhini ghat, Kundalika valley.
