    Great Wall
    I was determined to see "The Great Wall of India", so made a special detour on the way from Udaipur to Mt Abu. It is a massive structure, build by Rana of Mewar from the Sisodia Rajput clan, 600 years ago ; it stands guard between Mewar and Marwar. The climb up is a little steep, but anybody can do it taking it easy - there's plenty of benches along the way to take a breather. The fortress itself has a number of gates, all of them worth stopping at. Inside, there's the palace and a number of Hindu and Jain temples. I found the palace a little disappointing, but that is not why you're there. It is all about the massive ramparts that stretch for an unbelievable 36km, as far as the eye can see. And the eye can see far from this hilltop : elevated at above 1,000m there are panoramic views of the Aravalli ranges. A Monument with Capital M !!

    Wonderful fort
    A wonderful and historic fort. A must visit. View from the top of the fort is amazing. Visit temples inside the fort complex. Take a walk on the wall. Need around 2-3 hours to take a good look. Well maintained, neat and clean. Just hope light and sound show is restarted.

    The Wall
    The longest wall of India n the second longest wall in the world is of this fort. The wall is wide enough for 6-7 horsemen to patrol together. The climb on f the port is steep n tiring and should be avoided by older people n any ne suffering from heart problems etc. The fort is famous for the best ne who was born in these walls, Rana Pratap, most famous Rajput king. It’s always good to take the local guide , available always, usually near the ticket window. This fort is at thd borders of Mewar n Maarwaar regions, thus it was more of watch Durg instead of a residential Durg .

    WellMaintainedFort
    Best time to visit the fort is after 3-4 pm so that you can finish the trek to top and come down in time for the 6.45 light&sound show. The Shiv temple near the light&sound sitting is beautiful and it's worth spending some quality time here. In winters it's suggested to carry warm clothes after 6 pm. Senior citizens can avoid the trek as it's not an easy one. Views from the top are superb ! Wild safaris in Ranakpur is better than that in Kumbhalgarh. Snacks etc. at the fort is costly. Light&sound show is separately chargeable and worth a first-time experience. Tip : Buying the Fort entry tickets online is cheaper than at the counter.

    Beautiful Fort with mesmerizing Views
    Nestled in the foothills of the Aravalli Mountain Range, Kumbhalgarh near Udaipur is a majestic citadel and a major tourist attraction. Surrounded by verdant forests, the fort attracts travelers due to its pristine location and architectural grandeur. Its 36-km long external wall is the second longest wall in the world, after the Great Wall of China. Having witnessed a large number of wars, the hill serves as the boundary that is unbreakable. The fort that has seven fortified gateways and a number of Jain temples within it , along with the Lakhola Tank which is the most famous tank inside the fort that was constructed by Rana Lakha. The fort consists of a number of Hindu temples and Jain temples that indicate the religious tolerance of the rulers and how they patronized the Jains and encouraged their culture in the kingdom.

    Excellent fort
    Kumbhalgarh is a massive fort and the area for sightseeing is a smaller portion near the main gate and worth the visit. A guide is recommended as you will move in an organised manner, although all the history is available online. The only issue is parking at the fort. Definitely worth a visit.

    Huge fort to explore on your own
    If you like walking and exploring, you can spend the whole day here. Unlike other forts in major cities, this one is off the beaten path and not mobbed by people trying to sell you things. It was a very relaxing afternoon for us just walking around on our own.

Perched atop a hill, this fort was impregnable. The 36 kms long wall surrounding it is the second largest wall in the world after the Great Wall of China. It was wide enough for 8 horses to ride on it. The site has been declared a world heritage site.

The fort was strategically constructed to defend it from enemies. It was self sufficient with water reservoirs within it. Emphasis was on functionality rather than beauty.

The road to the fort has several tight bends to slow down and prevent the attackers from breaking open its gates using elephants. It has turrets for archers and cannons.

As the vehicles are not permitted inside the fort, all visitors have to walk up a steep winding inclined road to reach the top of the hill on which the fort is located.

Hence it is advisable to wear comfortable shoes and carry water. Not easily accessible for the elderly….
