Stay and food options at Rajgad Fort trek
Padmavati temple at the top can accommodate around 50 persons. There are a few small temples and caves where you can take a shelter. If you have your own tent, you can pitch it .
In peak season, one can get local food like Kanda Bhaji, and Pithla – Bhakri at the fort. Also, locals do prepare Poha, Maggi and tea for the morning breakfast. Still, I would recommend you to carry a few eatables along with you. Also, carry enough drinking water with you.
