  • Location

    Andharban, Maharashtra

This trekking trail is a steady descent through the Andharban or quite literally the "dark forest". The walk is sure to challenge your endurance but is perfect for those who prefer the way down rather than uphill! At a height of 2,160 feet, we'll make our way through dense evergreens, across gushing streams, and over-looking misty valleys. Goodwill Hiking is our initiative to promote a responsible hiking culture , where we climb the Sahyadris while reversing some of the damage to the environment by cleaning up the trails as we climb them. We also add to the local economy by hiring villagers as our guides and to make our meals in their own homes! After the trek, we donate a part of our proceeds to the local school as a part of our educational initiative.

Meet your host

Our Alpha Mike Foxtrot (military slang for Adios, motherf*****s!) program is the best job in the world: 3 hosts travel for 6 months straight! 

You’ll be travelling on this one with Chief Alpha. Like all our chiefs, Alpha’s a die-hard travel junkie, and has shed the city-slicker persona to go exploring with you. We’ve heard Alpha’s trips are all non-stop parties – lots of laughing and harmless prank-playing – sure to be a hoot!

Trip Highlights

What makes our treks different?

clean up drive

As we trek down, we also collect trash on the way to reverse some of the damage done to the environment, in exchange of the soul-cleansing experience that the hills offer us!

 

We have local hosts to help us as guides and all-round knowledge boosters on the trek. They will also be cooking fresh, organic meals for us in their own kitchens. 

We share a part of our proceeds with the village school to support their initiative. Our trekkers are encouraged to bring along art supplies, clothes, stationery and so on to donate to as well. 

contribute to the local economy

All meals on the treks are cooked with love by the village helpers in their own homes. This not only helps us supplement their income, but also allows us to eat fresh food made the local way! 


 

A descending trek which begins at an elevation of approximately 2,160 feet descends down into the valley, to reach the backwaters of the Bhira Dam.
