The Sahyadris are relatively safe for trekking. Most of the accidents in these mountains have been due to the foolhardiness of humans. It is very easy to prevent any kind of unfortunate accidents by using plain simple common sense and avoiding unnecessary risks and bravado. Always respect Mother Nature.

Trekking is as much a team sport as it is an individual activity. While all team members do help out each other, at the same time it is also necessary not to be a burden on someone by taking unnecessary risks. While every care has been taken to ensure safety, Trekventures cannot be held responsible for any accident, illness and such other unforeseen eventualities.
