Highlights

Gorakhgad and Machhindragad peaks stand tall over the trail, providing a surreal setting to the trek. A wide region ranging from Siddhagad and Machchindragad up to Ahupe Ghat and Jeevdhan in the Naneghat area towards north can be seen from the fort-top.

Gorakhgad attracts trekkers due to its thrilling experience of climbing the vertical rock wall and breath-taking views. This region of Gorakhgad and Machchindragad has a dense forest cover.
The trek of Gorakhgad Fort is not complete without reaching the top of the pinnacle. Facing the cave, proceed ahead towards your right. Just after a short walk, some steps can be seen on your left, which lead to the top. The climb along this stepped way in the rock needs to be carried out with utmost care. The top of the fort is very small. There is a small Mahadeo temple with Nandi.

History
This fort is named after Saint Gorakhnath who is said to have performed penance here. No major battle is recorded to have taken place here. The rock-cut caves and water cisterns here indicate that it was used to look over the nearby region and as a stopover station during the journey to Junnar via Naneghat. Though small in size, there is enough water and accommodation place.
