Canian Valley a.k.a. Khandala Valley Trek -- B - E - A - UTIFUL

Hi,I, Shridhar Purandare, am back with one more trekking and admiring journey for travelers i.e. Khandala Valley or Canian Valley trek.

Best thing is its very close to Pune and connected will with road and rail. It was just exploring for me as I was going in there for first time. I, Seedalya, Bonbon and Adishri left Pune by 7am to reach Lonavala by 9am. With heavy breakfast we were ready to enter Canian track.

There was no place to put our helmets so we carried them with ourselves.

Now few things to know about Khandala Valley :

Popularly known as Khandal Dari or even Canian Track for some. This is the only place which is advised not to be visited in rainy season. The place is favorite of all trekkers. This place lies in between Rajmachi Point and Rajmachi fort. You come across Ulhas river in this valley. Easiest way to reach the bottom is to first reach the Kune point and then walk to the bottom.

Our group ... Very fine people with very fine attitude ...

View of the valley is awesome ... Isn't it??

The base of this waterfall was our aim !!!

We helped quite a few to descend down ... With helmets on our head we were looking quite funny ...

Closeup of the waterfall ... It was huge .. and Challenging us ..

Cloudy weather is very good for treks .. less dehydration .. so less water to carry ....

At some points it was tough and slippery ...
Finally we were there at the base .. It was only river crossing left to reach our destination.
These guys from Hadapsar crossed it by help of Human chain ...
I tried too !! but reached half of distance ... Nobody of us was ready to give it a try ...

So after chilling I came back .. Hoping to cross it next time ..

As always you can contact me for queries and information. Comments/Suggestions are expected. :)
