About Place

Ratangad fort is a part of the Kalsubai range, which consists of some of the highest peaks in the Sahyadri. Ratangad gives you the best views of the surrounding peaks and Bhandardara dam. Experience the colossal cliffs unfolding in front of your eyes, one behind the other as you walk on the edge of the fort.

The robustness of Sahyadri can be experienced only from a few forts and Ratangad is one of them. Standing in the “Eye of the Needle” is a major attraction.

Amruteshwar Temple in Ratanwadi
The trek begins from Ratanwadi village. Make your way to Amruteshwar temple once you reach the village. This is a 1,200-year-old Hemadpanti temple. The walls of this temple are adorned with beautiful and intricate stone carvings and sculptures. The Pravara river flows by the temple.
The trail starts from the left side of the Pravara river, exactly opposite the Amruteshwar temple.
