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.
