 Location

GorakhgadThis is a small hill jutted out of the main range. Simple walk, spacious cave at the base of the pinnacle, good drinking water makes it a place of visit for many trekkers.

To reach Gorakhgad, take a bus to Murbad. Regular S.T. service is available for Murbad from Kalyan. From Murbad then take a bus to Dehari. Two hours climb from Dehari will take you to the summit.

 
 Precaution
Rock patch on the way to the templeReaching the cave is quite an easy trek. However, if one wishes to go to the top in the temple, then one will have to be a bit careful covering the rest patch! It's a thrill......enjoy it! However, it's better not to try this patch in the monsoon when the rocks are slippery.
 
 Sight Seeing
Temple at the top of GorakhgadReaching the top of the Gorakhgad is a nice thrill that one should enjoy, except in the monsoon! The view around, is wonderful........Siddhagad in the south-west and Naneghat, Jivdhan, Dhakoba  in the east, offers a nice panorama.
