Important Note :

1. This is just a rappelling event at Sandhan Valley, where we rappel down near start point in the valley, explore the valley but do not descend fully (Full descend is long trek and a separate event, this is just a rappelling event which can be done by even beginners). Apart from that we visit Samrad Village, Kokankada and Bhandardhara Backwaters if time permits.

2. Sightings of fireflies depends on weather conditions, we do not guarantee the same.

Overview : 

Sandhan Valley is a unique natural wonder, where a narrow valley is created naturally, it is hard to find such place anywhere else in Maharashtra. In this event we will not only explore the valley and experience thrill of rappelling but we will explore the Samrad Village as well. This is an ideal event even for beginners. In this season we also get to witness fireflies if the weather conditions are suitable.
