Great view of the blue Bundi

With lack of maintenance, this fort is not easy to get to due to the overgrown weeds and steep climbs. But what a view!

It was one of the best experience in Rajasthan. We walked around the forest, visited abandoned buildings, saw step-wells and went to a hindou temple with amazing views on the Jait Sagar lake (we highly recommend it, nice place to chill). Don't forget: to buy water before climbing, and to find a long branch in case you meet a testosterone-charged... More

Taragarh Fort is situated on heights og Nagpahari hills of Bundi. Can be reached by steep steps. you need a guide and a stick to scare monkeys. Fort is almost ruins. all over vegetation. No maintenance at all.

Huge decaying rambling beautiful ... Stunning views. Wander at will This is not a well maintained, lit, supervised site, it's an old ruin where, for a quid or so, you can share it with the bats while you explore. Loved it.

This Fort is not maintained by the government and therefore it was has been reclaimed by nature (trees and thousand of monkeys - although admittedly we only saw about 5 and they were very shy - not aggressive). It's an easy 20-30mins walk, although preferably you should do it in the afternoon when its a bit cooler. There is not... More

If you're looking for fort ruins that you can explore without locked doors or guards telling you where you can and can't go, this is it. The highlight for us was the Shiva temple in the south east corner, but it was interesting exploring many of the buildings and ramparts. We spent two hours walking around.

The fort has been allowed to fall into ruins, and is overtaken by vegetation and monkeys. Very atmospheric to just wander around. You can hire a stick, or a guide with a stick, to scare off the monkeys!

This sits high above Bundi and you will need a decent pair of legs for the climb up to it and around the place. Its well worth it and you are more than likely to be one of a few visitors as Bundi is off the main tourist routes thank goodness. You will get more out of it if you... More

The fort is reached by a fairly steep climb further up from the palace. On the afternoon we visited we were the only ones up there. We were accompanied by Jaysingh who works at the palace. Jaysingh was friendly, helpful and easily able to navigate the route and keep the very large monkeys at arms length. Jaysingh was able to... More
