Ratangad Fort Trek | What happened When I met 55 Trekkers? | |Let's GetOut

Ratangad, the jewelled fort famous for its admirable beauty.
Stands tall adjacent to mighty Kalsubai peak, the enourmous harishchandragad, the peaks of alang malang kulang and the beautiful bhandardara dam.
Even the great maratha king had all praises for the fort. The dense forest and awestrucking nature trails adds to the many reasons to visit this fort atleast once.
GETOUT Adventures is lucky to have witnessed this beauty along with rays of setting sun turing the mountains gold.
Come feel this journey through the eyes of GETOUT Adventures…!
