    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 .

    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.

    Satisfying experience
    The Kumbhalgarh fort is magnificent. It has a wall surrounding it which goes on for 36 kms. It's second to the great Wall of China. It's a long walk up to the fort but we loved the experience. The light and sound show at the end of the day was just the perfect ending. A must visit for history lovers.

    Plan for late afternoon visit & be physically fit
    Preferably go to the Fort in the late afternoon so that you can walk up, right upto the Hawa Mahal at the top and then enjoy the evening Light & Sound show. Budget at least 2 hrs for the fort visit along with a guide. Be prepared to climb steep up

    Great
    Great palace away from city rush and between the greenery. However don't ride in night. Roads are narrow and threat of panthers without street lights. Best to visit during monsoon season

    Amazing piece of history coming to life, well maintained & preserved historical place Not to miss the light & sound show
    World class ! An amazing piece of history, coming to life. Well preserved and maintained for tourists, very cheap to get in...easy access to food and water nearby within the compound. Roads leading to here are poor but worth the drive and effort for sure. Need about 2-3 hours to walk around inside and explore fully. Trek to the topmost point of the Fort and the view from there is breathtaking. Exploring the various temples, palaces, and step wells within the fort complex was fascinating, each offering a glimpse into the rich history and culture of Rajasthan. The light and sound show in the evening added another layer of magic to the visit, bringing the history of Kumbhalgarh to life in a captivating way.
