Sandhan Valley is a beautiful valley situated in the Western Ghats near Ratangad. Also known as the Valley Of Shadows as the major portion of the valley doesnt allow the sun rays to come in. This naturally carved valley is 200 feet deep and approximately 2kms long. Located near beautiful Bhandardara region, it is also surrounded by Alang, Madan, Kulang, Kalsubai, Ratangad and Ajoba forts. Along with breathtaking sights, Sandhan Valley also offers adventure seekers a chance to rappel down patches to reach its base.

The beauty of this trek lies within the fact that each year after monsoons the valley offers a new route, its like solving a puzzle to reach your destination.
This batch will be the final batch number 7 for 2016.
