  • Trip introduction

    Embark on a day trek to Gorakhgad that will take you on a 5-hr trek through the rugged mountains and dense forests of the Shri Bhimashankar Wildlife Reserve. The route to Gorakhgad takes you over a steep staircase carved into the side of the hill. You’ll navigate your way over these narrow rock-cut steps without any railings or support for an exciting adventure. Hiking through the jungles, you’ll reach the fort and catch splendid views of the Machchhindragad Fort, Siddhagad Fort and the Ahupe Waterfalls.

    This trek will lead you over a trail of relatively moderate to easy difficulty, making it perfect for fit beginners as well as experienced trekkers.

    Destination

    Located near Murbad, inside the Shri Bhimashankar Wildlife Reserve, the Gorakhgad Fort was used by many hermits to meditate in peace, one of whom was the namesake Gorakhnath. The fort was also used to guard an ancient trade route passing through Naneghat. Currently, the fort is in a condition of ruins with ancient temples, caves and water cisterns at the top. Trekking enthusiasts visit the fort to explore the centuries-old caves, inscriptions, walls and structures.
