Thanks for the excellent description that you have put out there for us.. My friends and I are planning a trek to Ratangad ourselves next week..A couple of questions I needed to ask you
1) Does it cost any money to live in those caves?
2)Is it possible to cook up at the fort, if so, how?
3) Any recommended eating places at the nearby village( Ratanwadi or any other) ?
4)How safe is it to spend a night in the cave (Threat from any creatures e.g. monkeys, snakes etc.)? Will it be dry as in protected from the rain?
