The road to Kumbhalgarh from Udaipur is not great and we had many misgivings about our journey to this place. But boy! did we love it once we arrived. It is the most magnificent fort that I have ever seen. Must visit!

This is one HUGE fort. The outer wall goes on and on and on and on; it is close to 12 km long. There are not too many buildings still standing within the fort - you can see them all within an hour or two. The real joy is just walking along the wall of the fort and peering outwards... More

The fort is worth a visit. Visit time should be either in winters or monsoon. It takes 2 hours from udaipur. would recommend you to leave post lunch so that you reach by 3. It will take 3 hours to explore the fort. Light anf sound show is must ,as the feel of the place changes completely . The light... More

Glorious Indian history is associated with this fort where Maharana Pratap was born. One has to climb on steep slope to accent, but worth enough. Useful tips: 1. Carry water bottle (must) and soft drinks, biscuits, chips etc. (if you wish) if you want to save yourself from paying almost triple of actual cost. 2. In summers, go after 5... More

This is a magnificent site some 1,100 metres up in wooded mountains with impressive fortifications, partially restored I think. At the top of the citadel there is the rather bare Cloud Palace, which looks quite recent and is not very exciting, but the views, the setting, the extent of the fortifications and the two fine c15 temples near the main...

We visited Kumbalgarh Fort on 2nd Feb 2015 at 4 pm. It was the right time to climb the fort.. well, it is not that difficult to climb it but certainly it is difficult to go one complete round on the long wall.It is a great defensive fortress built by Rana Kumbha. It has 360 temples within it . Sound... More

Kumbhalgarh is approx 100 kms from Udaipur and takes little more then 2 hours because road is not too good. Public transport is not available and you have to take taxi from Udaipur. It is situated on hilltop and has perimeter walls that extend 36 kilometres, it is the second longest wall in the world. Front wall is approx 15... More
