Gorakhgad Day Trek

Gorakhgad Fort
1 Day

Event Overview

Gorakhgad is located in Thane District falling under Murbad Taluka. Dehri is the name of the base village which is 10 kms away from Murbad. Trek to Gorakhgad is majorly a Jungle trail. Once reaching the base where the steps begin, the trek becomes more exciting. As there are no railings or support to climb the steps, it increases the adrenaline which satisfies Adventure Enthusiasts. After reaching the caves, Gorakhgad offers breath-taking views of the Jungle, the Valley & Machchindragad. One can also witness water cisterns near the caves. Going ahead there is a ridge to go top of the Gorakhgad. There is a Temple of Mahadev facing a Nandi and views of Siddhagad, Ahupe Ghat & Jivdhan is mesmerizing.

The history of Gorakhgad is based on Master and his disciple. Gorakhnath was Master or Guru of Machindranath. Gorakhnath used to meditate in the caves for his penance. Apart from this, Gorakhgad was used as a Watch Tower and used as an occasional place for stay for the Maharajas of the bygone era.
