"Sahyankan" is one of the most popular programmes where a mountain range in the Sahyadris is covered during a trek of 5 to 6 days. Arranged every alternate year in the remote regions of the Sahyadris / Western Ghats, one comes across dense forests, formidable forts, adventurous climbs and rugged terrain. During Sahyankan lectures are arranged on various subjects like history, archaeology, astronomy, rock climbing etc. A thousand odd trekkers are reached through Sahyankan. In the last 24 years, the organisation has arranged thirteen “Sahyankan” and Sahyankan-2007 was the last conducted. 

Sahyankan has been inviting enthusiastic trekkers from different age groups over two decades. Through Sahyankan, Chakram Hikers has established an unique bond with people from different strata of society. Sahyankan has helped Chakram achieve great success in creating awareness about the geo-historical preserves of the state of Maharashtra, nature, historical forts and monuments amongst the young mindset. 

Sahyankan has received incredible support in the form of eminent laureates who have applauded the mission of Chakram Hikers. In a personal letter to the organization, Gopal Nilkanth Dandekar, better known as Go Ni Da, winner of Sahitya Kala Academy Award and an eminent author has expressed his sentiments on the heritage of Maharashtra, thus encouraging the youth to be a part of Sahyankan (View letter). Another famous author who has many travelogues to his credit, Shri. P. K. Ghanekar (Pra Ke) appreciated efforts taken towards execution of Sahyankan in most difficult terrains. (View letter)
