Andharban Trek | Mapping Journeys

September 8 | 5:50AM
Pritam Hotel, Dadar
Sorry, this show is already over but head here for other fun events!


Andhar  means Darkness  and Ban stands for  dense jungle, so the  word Andharban literally  means The Dense Dark Forest.  The intimidating factor of this 13km  long trek has to be the hardcore jungle  cover. A major portion of this trek route  involves walking through this denseness. We begin the trek at Pimpri Dam in  bright daylight which keeps on fluctuating as we keep entering the dense  part of the forest and out. This adds to the magic.

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

The  trek concludes  at yet another dam  called the Bhira dam  which is also the source  of the Kundalika river famous  for its White Water Rafting. While  on the route we can see the beauty  of places like Ghangad, Tailbaila, Sarasgad,  Plus valley, Tamhini ghat, Kundalika valley. If  time permits after the trek, we will be also visiting  the famous Ganesh temple at Pali.
