Gorakhgad is located along the Bhimashankar range of Sahyadri. The fort still holds interesting remnants like ancient temple, rock cut steps through a tunnel, huge caves along rock cut water cisterns and the sky-high pinnacle. The fort was not only used to keep vigil on the surrounding area, but also provides a safe halt location during the journey to Junnar via Naneghat.
The hike to the fort is exciting, the initial trail traverses through dense forest, later ascending rock cut steps and further through a tunnel, carved out from the rock.
As you ascend further, will reach to base of a pinnacle. There are caves at the pinnacle base, one among these is a one cave huge enough to accommodate a large group.
You can enjoy the surrounding view of Ahupe ghat, adjacent Machchindragad, Naneghat, Jivdhan fort and Sidhagad at the sunrise.
