Overview

About Ratangad : 

Ratangad is hill fort in the Sahyadris, near Bhandardara dam. The fort, initially ruled by the Mughals, was conquered by Shivaji Maharaj who loved it like a jewel! It is known to be more than 20 centuries old and is the origin of the enormous river Pravara, also known as Amrutvahini. It boasts of clear views of the Kalasubai peak and the Kokan-Kada (where the Sahyadris descend steeply into Konkan), thus becoming a trekker’s and photographer’s delight.

The 1000 year old Amruteshwar temple at Ratanwadi, the base village is a must visit. At the start of trek, the trails leads into a thick forest which will last for one hour. Then you come across long and firmly fitted series of 5 ladders which brings you to the enormous cave where around 50 people can be accommodated comfortably. On the way to the top, there are huge water tanks which trekkers use as a source of water. It is full almost throughout the year. Half an hour trek into knee deep grasses, we reach the top. At the top there is a giant hole caused by wind erosion called ‘The needle’. The view from there is spectacular. A perfect site for photography enthusiast.

    This was my third time to Ratangad, no matter how many time I trek here, this place always mesmerizes me with something new and beautiful. Make sure you get to the top above the needle hole which is the true top. Also the view towards Katra is amazing. I have done more than 20 forts in Sahyadris and this one ranks one of the top in terms of views.

    one of the best trek I explored in Sayadri, I went there with some solo trekkers from Mumbai. We start journey in the night and by 5:00am we reach Ratanwadi small village on the foothills of Ratangarh fort. We saw some great views over the top of Ratangarh Fort.

    Good place to visit, you can try for tracking also, also can check for one night stay at top of the mountain fort it is relay exciting. One suggestion, have a visit to fort in winters or rainy season to see the nature close to you.
