Backpack Outdoors has arranged a trek to Kataldhar Valley (Lonavala). Kataldhar valley is quite isolated and beautiful place to explore giving us the unique view of Rajmachi fort. Kataldhar is a huge waterfall which flows in the monsoon, post monsoon it’s a beautiful valley with dense jungle. The trek goes through the dense jungle and gives us an opportunity to experience different species of plants, insects and reptiles. This trek can also be called as a reverse trek as we descend down first into the valley and then climb up for our return journey. So Trekkers, let’s pack our back and head our ways to Kataldhar Valley Trek.
