This fort is a truly magnificient piece! You cannot see it from the bottom, unless you are actually approaching the gates. The fort is nestled between high mountains surrounding it. As you climb up, you start seeing more and more of the ruins. The journey till the top is pretty exciting too.

You hear about the fort from everyone you meet during your stay in the vicinity. The tourism industry seems to have well trained people in the area to promote the fort and they do a good job of it. Unfortunately, the structure itself is very poorly maintained the access within, information and signs are all very poor and make for... More

Magnificent fort reminiscent of the chivalry of Mewar Rajputs. Climb uphill is interesting and gives a panoramic view of surrounding formidable fort walls. Worth visiting.

Huge fort in the middle of the mountains. Quite a walk to the top but worth it. Very military style with none of the ornate carvings and paintings of the palaces but you can certainly see it's purpose. The surrounding wall is still intact and snakes off into the distance. Do not expect luxury but instead expect to see a... More

The Kumbalgarh Fort The travel desk at the resort advised us to leave at 3.30 pm to visit the fort. The light and sound show at the fort was scheduled for 7 pm (winter timing), according to them that would give us enough time to see the fort and the palace. The entry tickets were as follows Adult Child Monday... More

A UNESCO World Heritage spot needs no recommendation, nonetheless, I urge you to visit this fort! If you are making a more than 2 days trip to Udaipur, a trip to Kumbhalgarh Fort is a must-do. It is spectacular and huge, the fort wall running about 36 kilometres! The bastions are massive and intimidating. Once you climb the fort, the... More

This is a great place to visit if you can find the time to get there. The main fort is impressive - stuck on the top of a large outcrop. The walls and ramparts are even more impressive and extend for over 30 Kms and are wide enough in some places for six to eight horse to ride abreast. Inside... More

This really is a great place, full of history. I'd wanted to visit after reading about this place on Google, which has the longest free-standing wall in the world after the Great Wall of China. You can't access the wall itself, but you can climb to the roof of the fort (actually a 19th-century palace) from where you can get... More

good place. not very touristy. steeps walks upto the main fort. few open chambers to view and best view from top of the mighty Aravali Mountain range. couple of temples in the fort complex. one small cafe for snacks, tea, coffee and water. clean loo. many resorts scattered around. Jungle safaris available but not many animals left in the sanctuary.
