Night Trek to Gorakhgad

Gorakhgad Night Trek
SHORT INFO

Type: Hill fort
Height: 2135 ft from MSL
Grade: Easy- medium
Endurance: Medium
Base Village: Dehri

Gorakhgad is located near Murbad of Thane District. It is 95 kms and 140 kms away from Mumbai and Pune respectively. The Night trek to Gorakhgad is mainly a Jungle Trail till you reach a temple of Mahadev which is right at the start of Stone Carved steps.

These steps will take you to the cave where a group of around 50 can accommodate easily. One can enjoy the star gazing activity along with the darken view of the valley, before dozing off. Before Sunrise many trekkers climb the top to take darshan of another Mahadev Temple at the top and have a 360-degree view of the surrounding. Ahupe Ghat, Machindragad and Siddhagad are clearly visible from this point with an awesome view of the sunrise.

Gorakhgad and Machindragad are related to each other historically. The Master was Gorakhnath who resided in the cave for Tapascharya. His disciple Machindranath did not want to disturb his Master, but also wanted to follow him. So, he resided on the hill next to it to watch and learn what his Master was doing. Thus, the name of Gorakhgad and Machindragad came into existence. Apart from this, many Maharajas of the bygone era, used this fort as a layover stop to travel further.
