Rated : 5.0
Nature was at its best, that feeling of walking on waterfalls nd feeling of thunderstorms were awesome, though we couldn't trek throughout the valley bcs of level of water nd couldn't do repelling still it was worth it, service was very nice nd they were really cooperative nd friendly... If you are planning to visit the place then don't visit during heavy rain days or during early morning bcs too much fogg obstructs the view

Trek to sandhan valley was a great experience overall (although it was quite challenging) . it has trekking, rappelling, water crossing, all of it in a single trek!!! This makes sandhan valley a special place to boost your adrenaline compared to other destinations, need not be necessary that you've to be pro to manoeuvre the valley, a complete rookie can make it through if you follow the team leaders. The group having the best leaders who become your best pals make it a cakewalk for a beginner only if you follow the instructions. Just to let you know the sweat and challenges are frugal compared to the satisfying beauty of the gorge.

Camping in Kodaikanal is one of the best things to do. I felt connected with nature again and loved the ambience there... We had a number of team building exercises like waterfall visits, tree climbing etc. I think we all know each other better now after having so much fun. Nice tour
