< <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Dear trekkers, & Routine Breakers >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
After rocking monsoon, Its time for post monsoon and winter treks… so let’s pack the bags once again to enjoy winter session of trekking with another trek, another place with mind blowing scenery and this time it’s going to be “GORAKHGAD” in Murbad region.
Friends, we are glad to announce that “OUTDOOR ADVENTURES MANAGEMENT” is organizing a “Trek to GORAKHGAD” on 19 th DEC 2010 in the murbad region.
More about the destination:
Fort Height: 2230 ft. approx
Type: Hill forts
Gorakhgad is a fort that can be done easily in a day, both from Mumbai and Pune. 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 having strategic importance during the reign of Shahaji Raje. However, no major battle is recorded to have taken place here. It was used in Shivaji’s 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.
you all are requested to carry packed lunch for the trek as there are no villagers for arranging food, water etc. Also there’s nothing available on top except a mind blowing scenery & Loads of water and a wonderful cave to relax in…. so please carry decent amount of eatables.
