A 13 kilometer jungle stretch located in the midst of Tamhini ghat with dense vegetation and beautiful flora. Andharban, which literally translates to Dark Forest, lives up to its name. The forest trail unwinds through several streams, waterfalls and giant trees. The trail offers some of the most spectacular views of Kundalika valley and surrounding mountain ranges within Tamhini ghat.
The major attraction of the forest is sightings of butterflies. The forest is surrounded by colourful butterflies, specially the Blue Mormons which is also known as the State butterfly of Maharashtra.
