We visited in summer, and it was a very hot day. However, the view of entire fort from the top was phenomenal and every bit worth it. Most elderly people refrain from climbing all the way up since it is a steep climb. The entry ticket was Rs. 5 since it is maintained by ASI. There is also a very... More

Amazing fort - birthplace of the great Maharana Pratap. One is amazed that a fort such as this magnificent one was built in such a remote place. The sheer size of the walls and their circumference tells us the story of individuals with a giant vision that has been implemented in such a grand fashion. It's a "living fort" -... More

Kumbhalgarh is a big hilltop fort built in the 15th century. Construction of the fort is believed to have started in 1443. At the top, within the fort walls is Badal Mahal palace (cloud palace) which was built much later in the late 19th century. Kumbhalgarh is about 80 km from Udaipur (about an hour and a halt to two...

This is a majestic fortress set upon the hilltops, The wall is huge (think: great wall of China.) There are numerous temples and palace grounds within the fort. I've seen a number of forts in India, but this one is unique. I can only imagine what it felt like to be in an opposing army attempting to storm those monstrous... More

The fort itself is not that amazing but the wall and the view!! My goodness!! If you are in Udaipur, it is only a 2hours ride and it is totally worth it! Plus there are almost NO tourist which is so surprising because this place is amazing. You can also visit Ranakpur temple afterwards. Stunning temple!

The best thing about this fort is that it is claimed to never have been conquered. As you approach the fort, it becomes clearer to you why they say so. From its location to its imposing walls to the buildings which are obscured from view, the fort has everything which makes it difficult to conquer. If you have the time,... More

Quite a walk to reach all the way to the top. The fort looks sturdy and secure. Has a light and sound show as well. History fans will enjoy every moment of the trip. Its a refreshing journey to the second longest wall after the Great Wall of China

Most popular tourists packages available do not include this fort in their standard itinerary. Make sure you ask for it. Even if you have to pay a bit more to get this included..... believe me your trip to Rajasthan is incomplete without visiting Kumbhalgad. However it is a hill fort and you got to climb the stairs to the top.... More
