I visited this fort in the pre monsoon period.It must be breathtaking to see the hills once the rains have made everything green. The backdrop is awesome . The fort itself is no great shakes for those who have seen Fatehpur Sikri or Agra Fort. The plus pint is the crowds are less here.

Raigad is capital of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Maratha empire. Please is quiet high, if go for picnic and group it is enjoyable. If you like history or not, I will say everybody must visit to Raigad at least once in life.

Rainy season is the best time to visit this location. There are two ways you can reach the top of the fort which is almost 1 km above sea level, one being the stairs and other rope way. I would advise stairs to climb and rope to get down. The stairs are steep so we avoided them while getting down.
