Maharashtra's Grand Canyon – Sandhan Valley or Valley of Shadow
"The deeper you go, the higher you feel”
It is a very good combination of a canyon and a valley.
Imagine walking along a 200 ft deep gorge carved by water over a million years, as the sound of your breath echoes against the narrow walls. Sandhan Valley, which transforms into the mist-filled Valley of Shadows in the monsoon, is a 200-ft deep cut in the scenic Sahyadri mountains. Rising 3000 ft above sea level, the valley is a natural crack, the walls of which have been honed over the years by waterfalls, creating a trekker's paradise.
A trek filled with rocky descends, several rappelling patches, wading through pools of cold mountain water, a night swim in a dark pool and the chance to camp at the bottom of the gorge with a bonfire bouncing shadows off the rocks.
At some places its width is less than 3 ft and at some places sun rays unable to even reach the ground. Which gives it’s the name valley of shadows!!!

ॐ श्री गणेशाय नमः
वक्रतुण्ड महाकाय सूर्यकोटि समप्रभ। निर्विघ्नम् कुरु मे देव सर्व कार्येषु सर्वदा॥ Ganesh Jayanti (literally "Ganesha's birthday"), also known as Magha shukla chaturthi, Tilkund chaturthi, and Varad chaturthi, is a Hindu festival. This occasion celebrates the birth day of Ganesha, the lord of wisdom. It is a popular festival particularly in the Indian state of Maharashtra and it is also celebrated in goa held during the shukla paksha chaturthi day (fourth day of the bright fortnight or the waxing moon) in the month of Maagha as per almanac, which corresponds to the Gregorian calendar month of January/February. The distinction between the Ganesh Jayanti and the more popular, almost pan-Indian Ganesh Chaturthi festival is that the latter festival is observed in the month of August/September (Bhadrapada Hindu month). According to one tradition, Ganesh Chaturthi is also considered as the birthday of Ganesha. This festival of Ganesha is also called as the Tilo Chauth or Sakat Chauthis in Uttar Pradesh, where Ganesha is invoked on behalf of the son of a family. It is also called as Tilkund chaturthi in Maharashtra.
