About And History ......

Ratangad is a fort in Ratan Wadi, Maharashtra, India, overlooking the picturesque locale of Bhandardara, one of the oldest artificial catchment area. The fort is about 400 years old. Ratangad was captured by Chhatrapati Shivaji Raje Bhosle and was one of his favorites. The base village Ratanwadi has a beautiful Amruteshwar temple which is famous for its carvings. The fort is origin for the river Pravara / Amrutvahini . The Bhandardara dam is built on this river.
Ratan means jewel in Hindi. This hill fort is indeed jewel in all the hill forts here in Sahyadri. 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.
Trek as such is quite simple. In order not to waste time, one should try to catch the 1st bus for Bhandardara and then the launch which normally comes for a ferry from Murshet to Ratanwadi. Have enough water from Ratanwadi itself as there is no water on the way.
