5 Places to Visit in Ratnagiri, Tourist Places & Attractions
Jaigad Fort

This 16th-century fort is one of the most notable tourist places in Ganpatipule, standing tall withstanding the tests of time. The fort was built on a cliff overlooking the Jaigad creek at the confluence of River Shastri and the Arabian Sea, to protect one of the major ports of the era.

The remains of this majestic architectural splendour, extending over 13 acres at an elevation of 250 feet above sea level, will spellbind you. A moat that used to be filled with water as a protection against invaders surrounds the structure.

Most of the outer walls and ramparts are intact, connected by robust bastions. If you climb the stairways, you can enjoy a spectacular view of the creek from the upper fortress. In the centre of the construction lies the palace of Shivaji’s commander-in-chief Kanhoji Angre.

Location: Near Jaigad Village, approximately 20 km to the north-west of Ganpatipule.

Timings: 9am to 4.30pm.

We had an amazing trek here. We loved it totally. We were around 15 friends. We were a bunch of my school friends and my college friends. It was a bid difficulty to plan and bring all of them together and move forward with the trip. Once that was done, we had a great time. The trek was so beautiful to take. Despite what many people say, we didn’t find this trek to be difficult or tough. IT was quite fun and interesting. We had a great time here, and I so recommend this one.

Prachitgad Trek in Maharashtra is by far the best trek that I have ever been. Well, where should I start? I am a huge fan of trekking, and mostly treks are surrounded by lovely greenscape. However, I always wanted to trek in a rustic village trek surrounded by rocks and stuff. I have searched and found such places and trekked there a lot. My recent find is the Prachitgad Trek in Maharastra. It was quite a lot of fun. We had amazing trek experience over here. It was so brilliant.

The trekking at this place was an amazing experience. The fort stay was one of the good aspects. The trek was breathtaking to say in 1 word. The surroundings and landscape are too good. The weather too makes you fall in love. The trek trails were fine, but not that easy for first time trekkers. The cost of this trek seemed fair and it was worth spending on it.
