Hearing your own thoughts, the silence, and your smartphone not distracting you at all! That’s a vacation, that’s how it was intended to be. Nature is the best teacher to teach us more about ourselves. No flusters, no stress. Only you, a bunch of friends, a thick green forest. This is what Andharban Trek is all about. HikerWolf wants to put a pause on your repetitive life and declutter the noise away!
Andharban Forest is dense, the green floor of flatlands, waterfalls descending and river crossing. All this is so surreal, we’re sure that it’s going to exile you to a movie scene. The type of movie scene where laughter is real, the experience is real and so is the creation around the people in that scene! Andharban jungle trek will do this to you.
It’s going to open its gates to you to a land where nature agrees to retire all year long. Filled with scintillating views of the Kundalini valley, Ghira dam and mountain ranges of Tamhini ghat!
Andharban jungle trek is a trek to descend rather ascend. It’s time to have a stunning weekend and explore something new altogether?
Memories, Masti and mystical world of greenery- that’s what HikerWolf believes to deliver. We’ll make sure that your phone is filled with photos and boomerangs.
Secluded woods can do wonders. Wander around the Andharban forest with our trip experts who will keep you hooked throughout the trek
Explore directions and falls with a bunch of strangers who we promise will become your family and pull you up through the mountain highs
Garma garam chai, and food by the falls, ahhh! What a view. HikerWolf will surely introduce you to a new way of dining.

We will start our journey to the mystical land of Andharban at 10:45 pm sharp from Dadar station (Pritam Hotel) and our further meeting points will be Ghatkopar (Amar mahal) and Vashi (Vashi toll Naka)
We will be reaching our base village early morning.
There we will savor traditional breakfast while enjoying a 360°view of mountains and cloudy peaks with hot tea/coffee. After that, we will adjourn towards the Pimpri dam: a beautiful dam and a mesmerizing preview for our journey to Andharbun forest and trek further. Just picture the view from the peak! That’s going to motivate you to climb further till you are at the top of the peak.
Here, we will have a small instruction and introduction session followed by lots of photography.
Around 7:00 am we will start trekking. The most exciting and unique component here is that it’s a descending trek and nothing like any other trek.
Because the Andharbun jungle is dense, the trek is through a dense, deep and dark forest. The fascinating thing here is a 13 km long trek along jungle so thick and beautiful, you surely will have a rare experience.
After traversing through the possibly rainy forest, it’s time to shut our stomachs from growling like an old engine. Around 11:30 am we will have our appetizing food at Hirdi village: A medium-sized populated village colonized by welcoming and fun-loving citizens who have opted for a natural lifestyle.
12:30 pm: It’s time to again discover the roots of the dark and deep Andharbun jungle, as we will follow the music of insects, birds, and the waterfall as they together create a symphony of nature. En route, we would witness the alluring beauty of places like Ghangad, Tailbaila, Sarasgad, Plus valley, Tamhini ghat, Kundalika valley, and few mesmerizing waterfalls.
Andharban jungle’s irresistible beauty will definitely make you pen down your poetry and stories about the dreamy journey to the land of neverland.
We together will dance and sing and play and splash in the falls. Explore this natural beauty along with charming views of the Bhira dam. We will retire our descending trek around 3:30 pm.
With the views of this amazing dam, we will have our breakfast at Bhira village: lush greenery spread across the waterfalls sprinkling joy. It will be the endpoint of our trek.
With lots of clicks and flashbacks of the jungle, we will return back to Mumbai around 5:00 pm and try to reach Mumbai by 9:00 pm.
