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.
