About  Rangana  :
Rangana Fort (Prasiddhagad) Rangana Fort is a very rare example of what can happen when extreme nature and extreme human achievements can do.Rangana Fort situated in deep core forests and on a peek where even modern amenities fails in today’s world so one can imaginehow and what made it possible to built and portray a fort structure in such dense and dangerous area. Rangana fort is famous as Prasidhdha Gad in the Maratha history situated in the Sahyadri Mountain on the boundary of Kolhapur and Sindhudurg districts of Maharashtra at the height of 2600 ft above MSL. Fort not easily accessible, strong and not easily defeat able even to enemies.
The Rangana area is spread 3 km long and about 1 km wide. There are many water tanks on this fort.
