Bored Of The City Life? Go Trekking!

    Pimpri Chinchwad, Pune

    What Did I Like?

    Andharban means the dark forest and truly it was a dark forest. I had gone to the Andharbans for a trek from Mumbai. It is a one-day trek. It is around 150 km from Mumbai, it takes around 4 hours to reach the base village, Pimpri near Pune. This trek is an amazing experience. The trek starts from Pimpri and descends till the Bhira dam {the ending point}. The trek covers a distance of 10-12 km and it takes around 6-7 hours to reach the end point. The trekking route passes through many waterfalls, the dark Andharbans and a plateau. The route is fully covered in fog and greenery. The difficulty level of the trek is medium. The route of the trek crosses seven mountains to reach the final destination. The view throughout the trek was more than soothing. There are many trek organisers who organise treks to the Andharban. I had been there with Treks & Trails. The organisers arrange a bus from Dadar to the destination and back, and they provide snacks and trekking experts and guides. Smoking and drinking are strictly prohibited during the trek.

    What's My Pro Tip?

    Going on the trek with a group of at least 2-4 people would be more enjoyable and helpful. Bring along light snacks. Wear good sports or trekking shoes with good grip. Carry an extra pair of slippers and clothes to wear after the trek. Leave your clothes and extra luggage if not required in the bus. Carry a plastic cover for your phone. I advise against carrying a DSLR as it may get damaged in rains and waterfalls. Carry pain relievers like Relispray, and also carry pain killers if necessary. This trek is not recommended for children.
