  • Very near Trek to the top with clear path. Level - Easy to intermediate. Go with friends & have a good walk up the hill to have a wonderful view into the valley

  • One of the best treks I had in my entire journey of hiking. Climbing the last pinnacle needs moderate assistance. It takes 2 hours to reach the top. Before the fort there is dense forest. Avoid climbing during heavy rainfall.
  • Superb trek. Till the base of the fort, it’s a pretty decent trek. Till that point it’s an easy trek. But from the base of the fort it gets a little tricky with some treacherous rock patches. You have to be really careful on them. One wrong step and it could be disastrous. It can be moderately difficult trek during the monsoons considering the rock patches get slippery. Be very careful. But the experience is super amazing. It’s about 2 hrs drive from Belapur to Gorakhgad temple. Its a nice temple with huge complex. Behind the temple starts the trail to the fort. Keep walking and after about 1.5 hrs hike you find another temple from where you hike up to the top of the fort. Ample parking space available. Lovely views. Highly recommended.
