    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.
