Ratangad Fort Trek

Ratangad is a 400 year old fort, captured by Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj in his time. It is situated in Ratanwadi which is it’s base village and overlooks the Bhandardara.

The natural rock formation has an emerging tip at the top known as ‘Nedhe’ or ‘the eye of the needle’. There are many wells on the top each near the four gates of the fort – Ganesh, Hanuman, Konkan, Trimbak. The Fort at the top of hill provides its spectators a view of the Sahyadri range that can be compared to no other, a true paradise of the photographer. The trek is a stimulating one and will keep you on your toes throughout the journey while the surrounding scenes mesemerize you.
