From the top of the fort, one can see Bhorgad at the north-west side, Tryambak range at south and Satmala range at north. Though small in size, Ramsej has an amazing history. In 1682, Mughals tried a lot to capture the fort but failed. Marathas fought very bravely for 6 years and finally the Mughals captured the fort on 1687. Marathas captured it again in 1707. During the Maratha war of 1818, Ramsej was one of the seventeen strongholds which surrendered to the English on the fall of Trimbak.
