Wonderful historical place. Well maintained and clean and eye soothing view, the fort has a heavy walk-in upward direction. The wall that leads to this fort makes it one of the unique experiences in Rajasthan. The entry ticket is cheap and definitely worth more than the money spent.

This is the 2nd biggest fort of India. Infact it is a hidden fort, which you can see only once you arrive near this fort (1 k away or so). You cannot see this fort for a far off distance. This was the engineering beauty of this fort, and the King Kumbhal built this secret fort in this way to avoid enemy attack. You will also see more such stories from the guide, and hence it is recommended to visit this fort with a guide (Rs 725) Though costly for a guide, but worth it.

It is a huge fort. 1-2 hours of walk minimum. But you can take breaks in between. So if travelling with kids of senior citizens, just be mindful. There is no water or washroom inside. So have it before entering the fort.

The guide will explain you a lot of interesting facts about this place. One such fact is the 8 inch heigh of King Kumbhal, and he use to worship the 5 inch Lord Shiva idol (Shiv Linga) by sitting. Imagine 5 inch tall Shiv Linga, and King Kumbhal use to perform the Shiv Abhishek (feeding milk) sitting on his toes. How tall he would be.

He use to carry 35k weapons during all the war. Now a days we cannot carry a 5 kg stuff. They use to carry 35kg weapons always. Such was their stamina.

After China, this is the 2nd biggest wall of the world. Yes our Kings built the tallest wall of the world.

Such interesting facts was worth the money paid to guide.

Once you reach the top, the view is amazing, but barren though. You can see the entire Kumbhalgarh area. 360 degree view.
In between the fort, there is a place where you get a very col breeze. you can sit & relax for 10-15 minutes here. You will feel airy & relaxing.

Net net you can visit this place if walking is not a issue. It is a fort experience (place of historic interest).

We visited in the morning around 10.30. The entry fee is 40/- per person. Vehicle cannot go inside the fort. It is better to hire a guide - costs about 500/- Beware of the monkeys as they look for eatable bags. Evening visit can be much better than morning or afternoon.

A lovely fort with a lot of history behind it, also the tag of having a continuous wall that is only second to the Great Wall of China in length. It's up on a hill and you can drive upto a certain point, the parking space can be hard to find during peak season. So it is advisable to park in the first visible vacant space, even if it's outside the main gate. It takes about 1-1.5 hours to see the fort. There are temples within the complex, for those who wish to visit.

We visited Kumbhalgarh fort Dec 2021. A delightful place with incredible engineering - especially the fort walls. Make sure you hire a good guide so that you miss out on the nuances of the fort. The temples within the complex have incredible architectural value

This is supposed to be the second longest fort after the great wall of China. It was very crowded and parking is difficult. There a small restaurant just as you enter and the food was very good. It takes about 2 hours to see the fort. The light and sound show has been stopped since many months (due to COVID). But they switch on the lights for exactly 15 minutes in the evening so try to catch that.
Vayam adventures has started a hot air balloon ride in the mornings from 6-9:30am and in the evening from 4-7pm but we were unable to do that as on the ticket it said till 11am and we went there after our safari at 10am and they said it was over as there wind and wind conditions are not favourable. So make sure you co-ordinate with them so as not to miss it.

The second longest wall after the great wall of china and a fort with many secrets. The light show in the evening is unmissable. Kumbhalgarh is all about this Fort.
