Gorakhgad (Gorakh-Macchindra) is one of the best trekking destinations near Mumbai. It is ideal for short one-day treks. It is about 25 km from Murbad near Kalyan in Thane District. Gorakhgad offers a thrilling opportunity for climbing at night. The climb takes about 4 hours. There are many temples and caves around Gorakhgad. Accommodation is available in a large cave at the base of the peak which is another attraction of Gorakhgad. The large temple of Gorakhnath also has a shelter big enough to house around a hundred people. Behind the temple, a path leads up to the base of the Gorakhgad fort. Visitors can reach this beautiful monument in an hour's walk.
