Famously termed as ‘Maharashtra’s Grand Canyon’, Sandhan Valley is located in Ahmednagar of North Maharashtra in the Sahyadri region (Western Ghats). This amalgamation of a canyon and a valley can be found near the Bhandardara region, in a village called Samrad, as a deep rock in between two mountain ranges. It is ideal for any adventure enthusiast or just for anyone looking to step out of their comfort zone, away from busy crowds of tourists. However, one requires some level of past trekking experience and a high level of fitness and stamina to be able to go on this challenging trek.
Teeming with unique outdoor activities and nature experiences, Sandhan Valley is approximately 200 feet deep and 2 kilometres long. The valley is such that the sun’s rays are unable to reach it at some points, giving it its famous nickname of ‘The Valley of Shadows’. The Sandhan Valley is surrounded by many mountain ranges, including Alang, Madan, Kulang, Ajoba and Ratangad.
