  • Trip introduction

    The Gorakhgad Fort trek is the perfect one for trekkers looking for a bit of a challenge. There are craggy pinnacles at the top that are begging to be climbed, and you might have to rope up for some sections. The three-hour trek to the pinnacle takes you through green-covered trails, past waterfalls, and gives you a chance to explore the caves at the top. It's not a very difficult trail, but the rock-climbing can be tough, although not technical.

    Destination

    Located at an altitude of 2137 feet, the Gorakhgad Fort is one of the lesser-known forts in Maharashtra. The fort is not historically very important, but the trek attracts adventure-seekers looking for a less crowded trail. From the pinnacles of this fort, you can see cloudy horizons and views of Ahupe Ghat, as well as the forts of Siddhagad and Machchindragad.
