Fort is well maintained. This place has 2000 years long historical background. Was stunned to learn about the historical events in this remote area. This place exhibits the defence strategies used by kings to fight with enemies. The light and sound show in evening is also good and explains the long history in short time.

Visited this combined with Jain Temple on day drive from Narlai to Udaipur. Up very windy roads and hills and then suddenly you crest brow of a hill and can see the fort on top of an immense cliff in the distance - a staggering view. You then drive down to the entrance at foot of the cliff. There is... More

This spot wasn't even on our radar. We were interested in visiting the Jain temple in Ranakpur and the Kumbhalgarh Fort was included in trip. We are grateful it was. The immense fort (37 km circumference, we're told) encompasses many beautiful temples and shrines. The setting is incomparable. The massive structure is impressive and imposing. Be prepared to walk!

This place is located around 85 Kms from Udaipur and highly recommend everyone to visit whenever they have any plans for Udaipur. This fort is quite big and the outer wall is second longest after the great wall of China. I recommend to take a guide so that all the stories can make your visit wonderful. The light and sound...

A fort with peaceful atmosphere. It feels to be the Second biggest fort in the world when you climb the fort. View from the top is awesome. Light and Sound show in the night takes you back in the Indian History.

It is around 85 - 90 kms from Udaipur. It has a massive wall surrounding the fort. It has almost 350 temples inside the fort. It is also the birth place of Maharana Pratap Singh. It is surrounded by forest. Although insise fort rooms are not so luxurious like other Rajasthni forts like Jodhpur, Jaipur but it has it's own... More

If one has to understand Mewar, they have to do the trio of Udaipur, Chittorgharh and Kumbhalgarh to understand the true vast expanse of the Mewars, and the grand sacrifices to sovereignty and pride of Rajasthan and India. Compared to the earlier two which are on the NH8, Kumbhalgarh usually gets ignored and it is a pity, since it is... More
