    Did You Know There's A Reverse Waterfall Less Than Four Hours Away From Mumbai?

    Jayati posted on 06 July

    What Is It?

    Also known as Maharashtra’s Grand Canyon, Sandhan Valley is a unique destination for trekkers. During the monsoon, a waterfall here comes to life and it’s known for a bizarre phenomenon – it flows in reverse. If you’re looking to experience something beautiful, then head here.

    How Do I Get There?

    Sandhan Valley is a good three and a half hours away by road. If you’re looking to avoid the road trip, take the train to bound to Kasara {but do book in advance}. From there, you can drive down to Samrad village {approx. 80 kms away} which is the base village for the trek.

    From there, once you begin the trek, the top of the valley falls out into beautiful and majestic waterfalls.

    What Is Unique About It?

    Nature at its BEST. #maharashtra #sandhanvalley

    Only during the monsoon time, a rare phenomenon comes to life in this valley. Also known as ‘the reverse waterfall’, it forms during heavy monsoon period. Owing to the high pressure winds, the water starts to flow back – upwards. If you stand at the top, behind the guarded railing from where the waterfall begins, you’ll be drenched and how.

    It makes for a gorgeous outing, photo ops and trek. Since the waterfall comes alive only during the monsoon period, make sure to go there during this time.

    Anything Else?

    Wear waterproof clothing and footwear with firm grip.
