Sandhan Valley Trek – In Outdoor Adventures Style

Sandhan Valley, also known as Valley of suspense or Valley of Shadow, is one of the greatest canyons in the splendid setting of Sahyadri (Western Ghats). The water carved valley is 200 ft deep and about 1.5 Km long. Sandhan valley is located on the western side of the beautiful Bhandardhara region, near Samrad village.
The valley is surrounded with mighty Alang, Madan and Kulang,Ratangad, Ajoba & Kalsubai (5400 ft. highest peak in Maharashtra) mountain ranges. The brilliant and deep narrow rock floored ravine is located between the two high walls of mountain range. At some places its width is less than 3 ft and at some places sun rays are unable to reach the ground. Which gives it the name: Valley of Shadow.
To go at end of gorge you have to cross 2 to 3 water pools, water level changes according to season. In winter water is up to waist and in summer it is up to knee high level. At the end of valley you get magnificent view of high cliffs and deep valleys. You have to rappel down 3-4 small patches ( height. 40-50 ft) to reach base of Sandhan Valley.
