Ratangad, also known as the “Jewel of Forts” is located in the Bhandardara region. The view of Katra cliffs and backwaters of the Wilson dam from atop the fort is breathtaking. The trek up to the fort is enjoyable as the route passes through the fields, one has to cross a Pravara River, couple of streams along the way. One has to climb a ladder to Ganesh Darwaja as the rock cut steps were destroyed by Britishers. Trimbak Darwaja is a marvelous piece of architecture. Khutta pinnacle, Kalsubai peak, forts like Alang, Madan , Kulang, Pabargad and Ajoba mountain etc can be seen from top. Ratangad is a source of river Pravara.
