With the monsoon finally bidding adieu, the nature lover in you must be getting excited to explore new forests and trekking destinations. Nestled amidst the lap of lush greenery and picturesque sites, Dandeli and the nearby areas offer you a great escape away from the hustling city life. Trekking enthusiasts, especially, will find the options here not only enthralling, but equally challenging.
While there are many mountains and sites which you can target for a quiet trek, the three popular routes are Kavala Caves trek, Kulgi-Nagzari Valley trek and Potoli-Shiroli trek. The routes are well defined and these are not extremely difficult treks, making them perfect for adventure enthusiasts.
One of the hardest routes in the area, the Kulgi-Nagzari Valley trek is 15 km long and takes about 8 hours to complete. This is a relatively difficult trek and not advised for first time trekkers or people with breathing issues. Potoli Shiroli trek is also a medium difficulty trek with a 13 km route which takes about 5-6 hours to complete.
If you are a frequent trekker, you would enjoy the climb on these two routes along with the mesmerizing views. For first time trekkers, the Kavala Caves is the perfect option to consider. It is a guided route with 4 km downhill walk leading to the magnificent caves. It is run by the forest department but you can get arrangements done via any leading Dandeli tourism agency. Alternatively, the caves can also be reached by a jeep or any other private four wheeled vehicle.
