Winter trek to Ratangad For with Mumbai Mountain Hikers

Rantangad is located in Ahmednagar district. Its base village is Ratanwadi. The fort is about 400 years old. Ratangad was captured by Chhatrapati Shivaji Raje Bhosle. It is also known as Jewels of the fort. It is on the boundary of Ahmadnagar and Thane districts.. The fort is origin for the river Pravara/Amrutvahini. The Bhandardara dam(arthar dam) is built on this river.

From the top of the fort neighboring forts like Alang, kulang, Madan gad, Harishchandragad, Patta are seen easily. The view of the entire Bhandardara dam( Lake Arthur) gives sheer pleasure. There are many rock-cut water cisterns on the fort. Some of them store potable water throughout the year. There is a natural hole in the mountain top probably caused by wind erosion. It is 10 feet high and 60 feet wide. Due to its shape, it is called Nedhe (or eye of the needle in Marathi).
