Ratanwadi Tourism & Travel Guide

Nestled deep within the Sahyadri range, the remote Ratanwadi in Maharashtra, has the rustic charm of a quaint village on a hilly terrain. Surrounded by trails and valleys, it is often deemed as a popular trekking site. It overlooks the holiday village of Bhandardara and makes for a humble day trip and a relaxing escape. This village is well known for the Amruteshwar Temple, which is a Hindu shrine dedicated to Lord Shiva. Carved with delicate intricacy, this temple is sure to stir your soul to a calming peace. Ratanwadi is also the abode of the 2,000-year-old Ratangad Fort, which can be reached by trekking to the place. Being a very small village, there are only a few rickshaws available for commuting. Then again, the village is small and doesn’t offer too much to get around for. There are no mentionable places to stay at Ratanwadi. Instead, you can camp near the Arthur Lake during the day and sleep at the available hotels in Bhandardara. Try to locate the hidden peaks of Kalsubai and Ratangad while having a laid back day alongside the scenic lake. If you have a day to spare, Ratanwadi is the place to be.

Weekend Getaways from Ratanwadi  

Best time to visit - January,February,October,November,December
India’s second largest city, Mumbai, previously known as Bombay, is home to a few hundred captivating contrasts and creeds. Mumbai is bursting with frenetic bazaars, shaded avenues thronged by commuters and roads brimming with traffic. The dynamic Maharashtrian metropolis is also a powerhouse of India’s business and trade sectors. But regardless, Bombay’s ethos lies in its biggest railway station - Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, in people-watching and eating bhelpuri by the iconic arch of the Gateway of India and in the exquisite Taj Mahal Palace, that holds a decade worth of stories about both Bombay and Mumbai. A few other places to visit in Mumbai city are Nariman Point - a legion of office blocks in the heart of the city and the Prince of Wales Museum for its eclectic architecture. Watching the sunset with a plate of vada pav at Marine Drive and experiencing the vibrant festival of Ganesh Chaturthi at Juhu Beach are few of the best things to do in Mumbai. One must also travel to Mumbai city to be dazzled by the country’s biggest, and most prolific film and media industry, wherein if you’re lucky, you might stumble upon a Bollywood star or two.
