Sandhan Valley Hanging Camps

Sandhan Valley Hanging Camps
Sandhan valley is one of the greatest canyons in the Sahyadri mountain ranges. It is a very good combination of a canyon and a valley. Located in the Nagar district, near the famous fort Ratangad, Sandhan valley is undoubtedly The Valley of Suspense. Walking through the narrow streak of valley with 300 ft rock walls on both the sides is a lifetime experience. Descending full Sandhan valley is always a memorable outing and the overnight stay under the sparkling sky, along the reservoir side, is a sweet cherry on the cake!

About Alang fort:
Alang Fort (also Alangad) is a fort in Nashik district, Maharashtra, India. It is one of the three forts, the others being Madangad and Kulang, in the Kalsubai range of the Western Ghats. They are the most difficult to reach forts in Nasik District. A dense forest cover make thesetreks difficult. These three forts are a little neglected due to very heavy rains in the area and a difficult confusing path to the forts

About Kulang fort:
Being in the same region of the three forts its said climb to Kulag is the most difficult. On the way up climbing we come across patches of roch cut steps. It take 6 hours to reach from Kulanwadi to the fort. On the fortto see around 5 water cisterns. Form here we could also see Mahuli with the 3 pinacles. One can also stay at the caves here.

About Madan fort:
The climb preferred is usually between Madan and Alang. The time taken could around 3-4 hours toreach the step after leaving Kulung fort. over here rock climbing would be required as the wall of the steps was destroyed during the cannon fire. Use of a fixed rope is required. There is one large cave on this fort and 2 water cistern. The top of the fort is a huge plateau. On the fort, there are two caves, a small temple and 11 water cisterns. Remnants of buildings are spread over the fort. Kalasubai, Aundh Fort, Patta and Bitangad are to the east of the fort, Harihar, Trymbakgad and Anjaneri to its north and Harishchandragad,Aajobagad, Khutta (pinnacle), Ratangad and Katrabai to.ADVENTURE AIM Itinerary for trek to Alang Madan and Kulung

#About Sandhan Valley:
Sandhan Valley is a beautiful valley situated in the Western Ghats near Ratangad. Also known as the Valley Of Shadows (as the sun rays do not reach the insides of the major portion of the valley) , this naturally carved valley is 200 feet deep and approximately 2kms long. Located near beautiful Bhandardara region, it is also surrounded by Alang, Madan, Kulang, Kalsubai, Ratangad and Ajoba forts.
Sandhan valley is a full descend trek, but the descend is not an easy walk. Completing the trek is more like a solving a boulder puzzle. Throughout the length of the valley we come across boulders ranging in sizes that we need to tackle as we proceed ahead. This trek cannot be done without technical assistance of certified professionals as there are 3 patches where you have to rappel down. A 45ft rappelling patch and 2 more patches where assistance is required only add to the thrill of the exploration.

Sandhan is not recommended for people who are not physically fit/active. We highly recommend to check the photos and video link provided below before registering for the trek.
