All About It
  • 1 Days  1 Nights 
  • Difficulty - Easy Moderate

  • Deep in the belly of Sahyadri, lies this beautiful and unexplored Aadrai Jungle where the forest floor seldom feels the warm embrace of the sun. The Aadrai trek location was actually discovered by a local villager, who came across the Aadrai forest location by fluke as he had lost his way while hunting. 
  • This beautiful trek location dates back to the 1st millennium and is located in Junnar city in the Pune district. Aadrai Jungle Trek is a paradise for all trek lovers who are looking for an escape from the monotony of city life. This jungle trek offers the trekkers a much-needed break from the polluted air and every breath of air here feels rejuvenating and refreshing. 
  • The Aadrai Jungle Trek is a treat for all your senses given its abundant flora and fauna. Along the trail, one will witness various streams and passing waterfalls including a mega 1200 feet tall waterfall. 
  • The mesmerizing view will seem like out of a fairy tale with the lush green forests, melodious chirping of the birds, the chittering of the forest animals, and invigorating streams and waterfalls. 
  • Apart from the lush green forest, the Aadrai trek has a lot to offer like the Kalu waterfall, Nageshwar temple, and many ancient caves- each with a story to tell. Due to Aadrai’s Jungle location, it is one of the most sought-after jungle treks.
  • During Monsoons, the Aadrai jungle trek is one of the most exhilarating treks because of its dense forest area. It is one of the most thrilling treks of the Sahyadri range that lies deep within Malshej Ghat.
