    I was visiting my cousin in Pune for his birthday celebration and wanted to surprise him with some adventure outing. My colleague from Bangalore suggested me of this trekking expedition in Pune. I am really thankful to him for his suggestion as this trek was by far the most adventurous and fun trekking. I am not much of a trekking guy but this trek has definitely made me one now. We were picked up from the mentioned location and it was on time. We were 6 people who went on this trek. The beauty of this place just can’t be described in few words. We also made some new friends on this trek. Andharban can be best described as a heaven on earth. The scenic views with the laid back scenery will definitely mark a place in our hearts. The food provided was also good. We made few halts in between our trek to catch up some breath. We also made some new friends there during the trek. Just be a little cautious for your own safety during the trek. Gaurav our birthday boy was happy as well. After all it was his birthday and we had to make it special. After our amazing adventure we returned back to Mumabi. All together great experience and fun. Would love to visit again and recommend as well.

    One of the best trekking adventure so far. It was very well organized must say. From our pick up to the whole trek we had the best times of our life. We met few other people who were very friendly as well. We started out trek through the scenic beauty of the grounds. Trust me guys it was really beautiful. Most of the parts were dense jungle throughout our trek. The vast greenery was something which I will never forget. Another best thing was that everything was on time and so we did not had to worry about anything. Loved it. I would definitely recommend to the ones who are looking for an adventure.

    This was my first trek in Pune. The trek matched the itinerary as mentioned above, except that our return was delayed by an hour. The trek crew was knowledgable and helpful. They knew the area well and came in well prepared. Food and snacks provided were good. Overall, the experience was amazing and I will go again.

We trek through the verdant green forest and the quaint zig zag roads. The best part was the sky that was just giving us the best view together with the scenery. Breakfast and snacks were good. Nice one!
