Maharashtra Vacations Monsoon
Each year throughout the rainy season, Maharashtra becomes one of India’s most popular tourist attractions. Steep Drop Waterfalls, Valley of Wildflowers, River Rafting, Rain Forest, Greenfields, Roaring Rivers, Foggy Mountains, Magnificent Historical Forts, and Buddhist Monasteries all beckon you to spend your Saturdays experiencing monsoon trekking. The Sahyadri Mountain Range is an adventurer’s dream.
Why do you have to go trekking during the rainy season?
The atmosphere is more peaceful during the rainfall, and hiking will let you reconnect with the environment and make new friends outdoors. When you need to escape from the congestion and loud pubs, travel to the highlands and rivers for an adrenaline rush.
Andharban trek (or Dark Woodland) is a deep wilderness in Maharashtra, about an hour and a half drive from Lonavala. Andharban trek journey is a great monsoon hike because it is mostly partially obscured and descends all the path. In the Tamhini Ghats, there is an evergreen Sahyadri forest draped in mist and a lovely woodland scene.
Throughout Andharban trek there are gushing cascades and somehow still freshwater ponds among the dense greenery. You will indeed be treated to breathtaking vistas of the Kundalika Valley as well as incredible vegetation and animals. Around Andharban trek, people also undertake night mountaineering.
