The idea of visiting Rajasthan will definitely flood your mind with a myriad of images that you’ve probably collected over the years from hearing others’ travel stories or fantasies or even from the television – the imposing and iconic silhouette of a Rajput fortress witnessing a battle of honour, the blood and sweat still etched on the walls or the cheerful tinkling noise of anklets running through the ornate corridors of a magnificent palace of glass by the lake, and forbidden tales of Rajput-Mughal romance.
Yes, a visit to Rajasthan will feel like it just emerged out of your dream. Of the many fortresses to visit and marvel, is the spectacular Kumbhalgarh Fort, now declared as a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO situated at a distance of 82 kilometres away from Rajasthan’s beautiful lake city Udaipur. Kumbhalgarh packages for sightseeing include the 360 Jain and Hindu temples enclosed within this rather well-preserved historical fort complex as well. The marvellous fort is built atop a hill and the perimeter walls, if measured, extend up to 36 kilometres, making it one of the largest fortresses in the world, and the second-largest in India after the famous Chittorgarh Fort.

Get to know more about Kumbhalgarh before booking your tour packages
Kumbhalgarh features a massive fort sits imperiously over the hill, overlooking the quaint little town, the name of which emerged from the fort itself. There are over 360 temples built within the walls of the fortress. The history of this area as a fortified town can be traced back to the 6th Century when King Samprati, a Mauryavanshi descendant of the great Emperor Ashoka, built fortifications marking the boundaries of the kingdom. Later, when Rajputs started ruling over the region, Rana Kumbha of Mewar, then erected the present-day fort atop the original fort, and from him, the fort got its name; a village of the same name grew around the fort that later achieved town status. Basically, the fort here is the town’s prime attraction. Since the time the first fort was built, it has been a very strategic location between Mewar and Marwar.

Things to do at Kumbhalgarh
1. The Kumbhalgarh Fort:
Perched at a height of 1900 metres, the Kumbhalgarh Fort was built by Rana Kumbha, the leader of the Sisodia clan of the Mewar Rajputs in the 15th century. A highlight of a Kumbhalgarh tour package, it is a UNESCO World Heritage site for being the second largest fort in India and being one of the longest wall structures in the world, extending up to 32kms. This fortress never fails to impress a visitor who is allowed to climb to the top and watch distant sand dunes of the Thar Desert.
2. Kumbhalgarh Wildlife Sanctuary:
Surrounded on all sides by the Aravalli hills in the district of Rajsamand, the Kumbhalgarh Wildlife Sanctuary is a dense hilly forest covering the entire region. Initially an open hunting ground for the Royal family members, the parkland inhabits varied wildlife forms, such as tigers, leopards, bears, wolves, deer, chinkaras, and almost 200 species of birds. One can choose between a jungle safari, riding a horse or trekking through the winding hilly trails of this wilderness, which is included in our special Kumbhalgarh tour available online.
3. Badal Mahal:
Situated within the fort, this is a famous Kumbhalgarh sightseeing place. The Badal Mahal or “Cloud Palace” is a grand palatial complex, located at the highest point of the spectacular hilly fortification. It is a two-storeyed building majorly featuring opulent architectural ideas of the Mewar Royals. The building is best known for the two separate sections for gentlemen and ladies, namely, Mardana and Zanana, respectively. The palace is renowned for the spectacular view you get from the top.
4. Neelkanth Mahadeo Temple:
The Neelkanth Mahadeo Temple is one dedicated to Lord Shiva, situated very close to the Fort and is one of the best destinations for sightseeing in Kumbhalgarh. The foundation stone to this temple is known to have been laid as far back as the 15th Century. Today, the temple consists of a beautiful and tranquil complex with an inner sanctum as well as an open platform for conduction of religious rituals and sacrificial holy fire offerings.
5. Lakhola Tank:
This is an impressive linear water reservoir constructed by Rana Lakha and it lies within the fort complex. It is 5 kilometres long and 200 to 100 metres wide. It has a depth of 60 ft presently. Visit this tank for some waterside recreational time, free of cost. Your Kumbhalgarh package will most likely cover a trip to the tank.
Best time to visit Kumbhalgarh
The best time to book a Kumbhalgarh tour package is during the winter months or towards late autumn or early spring since it is situated quite near to the Thar Desert, summer is scorching here and might hamper you from enjoying your Kumbhalgarh package. Overall, the best months to visit Rajasthan are from November to February. However, you may book the Udaipur Kumbhalgarh package between the months of September to March as well.
