I visited Kumbhalgarh Fort on 20th April 2019 and spent one night. This is outside city but worth to visit once.
During my vacations in India in April 2019 I plan a trip to Kumbhalgarh Fort with my friend and my mother. This fort is Mewar fortress on the westerly range of Aravalli Hills in Rajasmand district near Udaipur Rajasthan. We made the required arrangements for the visit that we all looking forward to and were confident with our car that will take us to Kumbhalgarh fort from Udaipur. Next morning on 20 April we started our journey by car during this long journey.
We also tried local road side food and snacks in between and take a short break for few minutes. We reached there near about 5 in the evening and entry to the main fort was closed for the day but other part of the fort was open so we decided to see it first. This fort is a world heritage site included in hill forts of Rajasthan built during the course of the 15 century by Rana Kumbha.
The sky was clear with no sign of clouds and weather was good so it was easy to explore the near by areas of the fort. Some temples were there in good condition and some good architectures were just opposite to the fort it seems like a temple. Then I walk near the fort wall and you can see the endless expanse of the out walls of the fort. I would loved to track along these outer walls and the travel bug in side me was pushing me up to explore more and more, it was amazing view of that area in light sunlight as it going to sunset. Than we enjoy the show which was open at that time in evening and was all about the story of that place. It was great experience.
Now the day was it end and going to be late night so we decided to take a hotel and our search starts here. After a long drive from fort and checking all the hotels we were unable to find a room for us and we came out the city in search of hotel to stay than on the way we find a resort and with no other option left.
We spend one night here at Keya valley Resort located in the heart of green hills. It was relaxing and needed that time and finally we had our dinner and rest. Next morning we start our journey towards Jaipur from Khumbhalgarh with the imagination how people would have walked or climbed up on elephants and horse back daily, and how this type of structures were made with out any machinery or other equipment’s with such a heavy stones which are still alive and gives us a feel of our history. For now I m leaving you with these pictures taken in this trip.
