About Gorakhgad Fort

Gorakhgad Fort is an amazing trekking destination, which is easily accessible from Thane, Mumbai, and Pune. Apart from the tourists, this fort attracts many trekkers also by offering a very thrilling experience of climbing vertical rocks. One side of Gorakhgad and Machchindragad is covered with dense forest. The fort is believed to be named after Saint Gorakhnath who performed penance here. The history of the fort is not very clear, but the water cisterns and rock-cut caves at the fort indicate that it may have been used as a stopover destination for travellers to Junnar via Naneghat. The fort is located at a height of 2150 feet from sea level. Trekking up to Gorakgad caves is not difficult, but climbing through the pinnacle is a challenging rock climbing experience. There are caves carved out at one side and the pinnacle can easily accommodate 25 people. Water is available atop the fort, but may need filtering.
