Kalyan Railway Station is a busy railway station in the central line of Mumbai suburban railway network. It is easily accessible by road and rail.
This adrenaline-packed two day trek to Gorakhgad is perfect for those looking to do something unique and exciting. You get to make your way through a dense forest and then climb along the vertical rock face of the Gorakhgad fort. At the top is a massive cave that becomes your home for the night. You'll sleep in the shelter of the cave, listening to the sounds of wildlife outside, and awake to a beautiful morning in the outdoors!
Gorakhgad is a fort located in the Murbad region of Maharashtra. Owing its name to Saint Gorakhnath, Gorakhgad was used for patrolling during Shivaji’s reign. The fort however, offers a lot more to trekkers than to history buffs. The dense forest cover that leads up to the fort, the steep vertical face that requires a considerable amount of rock climbing, the caves and the final ascent to the top of the fort add up to making this a very adventurous trek.
