Gorakhgad Trek

Hi,I, Shridhar Purandare, am back with one more trekking destination for travelers i.e. Gorakhgad trek.

We planned it as a night trek. So that difficult steps and valley around them will not make others afraid.

Some information about Gorakhgad At a Glance

We started our journey by 10pm ... Full time pass in the bus with all enthusiastic singers and dancers !!! We met Mumbai group at Dehari .. Few of them left behind to guide us ..


We started the trek around 2am from Dehari .... A girl gave away her will power after 20 mins walk .. Somehow we convinced her to come with us to top ..The tricky steps way came up and slowed us down .. I and Dhawal were leading way checking difficulty for different patches ...


Finally by 5am we reached caves and everybody Hushhedddd !!!!



Wee hours provided us beautiful views throughout the trek


As most people preferred to rest in the cave .. Few of us started to cruise to top of Gorakhgad ... The path is again tricky with one rock patch ...

Finally we were on top ... It always provides me joy of accomplishment ....We also tried few weird things with VJ ... Haha That was funny !!!

Descending was as tricky as climbing ... But we did it successfully with utmost care...It was time for group photo ... Some brilliant and cute memories will stick to this photo...

Next day we started descending after doing some easy rappelling in front of the caves ... The way and the deep valley was very clear now ... So everybody was very cautious ...


Finally it was time to look back at our achievement ... Mission accomplished .. !!!

As always you can contact me for queries and information. Comments/Suggestions are expected. :)

Regards
Shridhar Purandare

  2. Sometimes I feel like a Stepping Stone... I am that kind, young lady that offers a wanderer food 'n drink off to the side of the road -- in the middle of nowhere as they journey into the next phase of their life. I am that kind, young lady that will change a stranger's life forever, and be a burned out memory in the back of their mind... I was that lady with the sad green eyes, the kind smile... The one that offered you a helping hand and good conversation while you ate your food.
