    All about the || 21-22 April 2018 || Wild Rangers Night Trek to Gorakhgad.

    Gorakhgad, located near Murbad taluk in Thane district, is a one-day trek that can easily be done from both Mumbai and Pune. It is one of the twin pinnacles, Machindragad and Gorakhgad. Gorakhgad had strategic importance during the reign of Shahaji Raje. However, no major battle is recorded to have taken place here. It was used in Shivaji’s era to patrol the nearby region and was used as a stopover station during the journey to Junnar via Naneghat. Though small in size, there is enough availability water and a lot of space for accommodation. The fort gets its name from Saint Gorakhnath, who performed his “Sadhana” in this place. The path to the top of the fort plateaus out twice before reaching the cave. The final climb to the pinnacle involves a steep rock patch that leads to a small temple. As we reach the top we get a view of Ahupe region of Bhimashankar forest, Siddhagad, and Macchindragad. Gorakhgad and Macchindragad are joined by a common ridge. The top of the rock passes through a bit tough route. Though not a technical climb, it has high exposure.
