About Gorakhgad:
Gorakhgad is a fort that can be done easily in a day from Mumbai. Though not famous for any historical events, Gorakhgad attracts trekkers due to its inviting pinnacles, which offer good opportunities for rock-climbing. This region of Gorakhgad and Machchindragad has a dense forest cover. Fort Gorakhgad is quite small in size. It was had strategic importance during the reign of Shahaji Raje. However, no major battle is recorded to have taken place here. It was used in Shivaji Maharaj era to patrol the nearby region and was used as a stopover station during the journey to Junnar via Naneghat. Though small in size, there is enough availability water and a lot of space for accommodation. The fort gets its name from Saint Gorakhnath, who performed his “Sadhana” in this place.

Irshalgad plateau and pinnacle

 

About Irshalgad Fort

‘Irshal’ means a pinnacle and ‘gad’ means a fort. Hardly found anywhere in History, Irshalgad may have been under the Maratha rule when Shivaji Maharaj captured the regions of Kalyan and Bhiwandi.
The Fort has been visited by very few history lovers and is a favourite for trekkers, adventurers and nature photographers as well. The Fort is intimidating and takes a brave adventurer to scour its heights. Join the different trekking enthusiasts on the Irshalgad trek to revel in the glory of the challenging and massive fort that has spiked the interest of several mountaineers and rock climbers for quite a few years.
