About RatangadRatan means Jewel in Hindi. This hill fort is indeed jewel in all the hill forts here in Sahyadri. It is located in the district of Ahmednagar and is located about 4255 feet above sea level. It lies in the Ajoba mountain range surrounded by great mountains of Kulang, Alang, Kalsubai, Katarabai, Ajoba and Ghanchakkar. Geographically Ratangad is at the banks of Bhandardara lake of Ahmednagar district. With views of lake and highest mountains in Sahyadris looks very much lost in time. At the base of this fort is ancient Lord Shiva (Amurteshwar) temple. About 1000 years old temple of Lord Shiva, the Amruteshwar Temple at Ratanwadi, is an absolute paragon of high class architectureRatangad has still the remains of fortress with bastions and stone walls.

DGA invites you to a trek into the Jewel fort of Sahyadris. The 1200 year old Amruteshwar temple in the base village Ratanwadi is of a great historic significance and architectural marvel. At the beginning of the trek, we approach the fort by walking on flat ground and cross river beds. The trek then enters into forest canopy. One hour into the thick forest will lead us to a series of 5 firmly fitted steel ladders. This is the most exciting part of the trek. We then approach the beautiful caves. From the caves, the trail towards the top is through knee deep grass. On the top of the fort, there is a giant hole called 'needle' in the mountain caused by wind erosion. The view from the top is mesmerising. The Sahyadris giants AMK, Ajobagad, Kalsubai surround Ratangad. The beauty of the view in monsoon is indescribable.   Brief Itinerary: 24th December, Thursday 20:45 - Catch Kasara fast local starting from CST at 20:52 (Dadar-21:06, Thane-21:33).
