TMI: Flower Special Trek to Ratangad on 7th September 2014 (Starting 6th Night)

Hi Mates, We at Trek Mates India are glad to invite you for Flower Special Trek  to Ratangad on 7th September 2014 (Starting on 6th Saturday Night). 

     (*Pic Courtesy: Mathew Padinjath)


Some information about the place:
Type: Hill Fort
Grade: Medium
Endurance Level: Medium
Height: approx. 4255 ft.
Base Village: Ratanwadi

Ratan 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 Sahyadri looks very much lost in time.

This fort offers offers fabulous views of majestic Sahyadri ranges. Right from Katrabai till Sandhan Valley. One of the most beautiful forts in Flowering September, Ratangad seems to shadowed by yellow Sonki Flowers.

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 architecture of our ancestors.

Ratangad has still the remains of fort with bastions and stone walls. Cave on the top is cut from the rock face and can easily accomodate 25 people at a time. Water cisterns are usually filled with water throughout the year and trekkers use them as water source. Eastern side of the fort has some fortification left, one can see Rani mahal here. From the southern side on can see Katrabai and Ajoba fort very close.

This side has also some fortification left, but most of it is damaged.

This orifice is big enough to be seen from base of the fort and can accommodate about 6-7 people at a time. Strong winds can be experienced at this orifice. Climbing down the Nedhe to the western end of the fort leads closest to the Khuta pinnacle via Triambak Darwaza.
