Ranganagad Fort

Situated at an altitude of 2600 ft. above sea level Rangnagad is a trekkers delight. This fort is among the fifteen forts built during the Shilahar Bhoj’s regime. Shivaji captured Rangnagad in 1659 and made the fort his favourite resting place. Fresh water lake and Rangnadevi Temple inside the fort are scenic splendours. Beware of bison’s on Rangnagad, we recommend you not to wear colourful clothes. When they see any person alone, they group themselves together quietly at one place and that is the danger singal for you, but these incidents are rare case.
