Thrilling trek to Gorakhgad
Height: 2137 feet
Base village: Dehri
Gorakhgad is a fort that can be visited in a day's time, quite reachable from Mumbai and Pune. Though the history of the fort is not known, Gorakhgad attracts trekkers due to its thrilling experience of climbing the vertical rock wall and breath-taking views. This region of Gorakhgad and Machchindragad has a dense forest cover.
This fort is named after Saint Gorakhnath who is said to have performed penance here. No major battle is recorded to have taken place here. The rock-cut caves and water cisterns here indicate that it was used to look over the nearby region and as a stopover station during the journey to Junnar via Naneghat. Though small in size, there is enough water and accommodation place.
