Ratangad to Harishchandragad Range Trek

2 Days2 Nights

Event Overview

The fort is very popular among trekkers and nature lovers as it is one of the best forts to Trek. It is quite ancient, and is considered to be from the medieval period. Going rightward of Harishchadra temple, there is a big Shiva Linga which is completely surrounded by water. Its height from the base is five feet, and the water is waist-deep. It is quite difficult to reach the Shiva Linga because the water is ice-cold.

Trek begins from the base village of Ratangad. This trek covers the range of Katrabai Mountain pass (Height: 4300ft approx). It lies between Ratangad & Harischandragad fort. This is one of the most important pass in Trans Sahyadri Trek. No doubt it demands endurance but the scenic beauty, dense forest and streams will wash off all your tiredness, and will prove to be a visual treat for your eyes. Your mind will be refreshed by the beauty of this mighty range.So gear up to explore the mysteries of the wild and test your limits because its only when you test your limits you know who you really are!

At the base of the fort lies a 1000 year old temple of Lord Shiva - the Amruteshwar Temple at Ratanwadi. It is an absolute paragon of high class architecture of our ancestors. Ratangad still has the remains of fortress with bastions and stone walls. Water cisterns are usually filled with water throughout the year and trekkers use them as a water resource. Eastern side of the fort has some fortification left; one can also see Rani Mahal here. From the southern side one can see the Katrabai and Ajoba fort very closely. This side also has some fortification left, but most of it is now in ruins. Climbing up on the northern side, one can see the natural orifice (hole in rockn, elodchael ly called ) in the rock face, mostly made by wind. Strong winds can be experienced at this orifice. Descend to the western end of the fort leads closest to the Khutta Pinnacle via Trimbak Darwaja.
