The remnants of the centuries old Ratangad and its architectural beauty are insta-picture perfect. Don’t forget to capture the naturally beautified jungle trails that lead you towards this Jewel fort of Ratangad. Cross the Katrabai Pass which had immense significance back then in the historical days. Reach Kaladgad fort and that’s it, within no time you will see yourself entering the caves of Harishchandragad. Located in the vicinity, Kaladgad fort runs along the north base of the mammoth harishchandragad range.
Harishchandragad Fort never fails to amuse wanderers with its abundance of mythological and historical importance while the most picturesque are it's mountainous ranges. Add to it the cool and misty weather with clouds floating by as you trek to the top. Just as we prepare to welcome monsoons, be there to witness the cloud gathering first!
