Ranthambore fort is inside the national park. The climb is fairly steep, around an hour. Ideally not recommended for senior citizens. On the top of the fort, Ganesh temple is located which is very ancient. Best time to visit the same would be an early morning trek to the fort.

The fort is a nice climb which allows you to see the area from high up. You see natural beauty as well as monkeys. Worth the visit

The drive is great as the entrance of the Fort is inside the park. We went on a winter afternoon, that's when the wildlife comes out to soak in the sun. We ended up spotting a lot more animals than we did during our safari.

The parking can get a little tricky as the parking area is mostly full. We parked on the corner of a road.

We also decided to get a guide. I recommend taking the help of a guide as its always nice to have a local to guide you in these confusing forts. Ours took us around, told us about the rich history, took our photos. The walk upto the fort is not strenuous, in fact its quite easy. So dont worry about that.

During sundowner, the fort looks absolutely spectacular. Views from the top are amazing!

If you are own your own, dont forget to say hi to Lord Ganesh. As our guide said 'this was the headquarters of Lord Ganesh and all the other temples are branches'. A lot of people come from far and wide to see him.

This should be on your list if you are in Ranthambore.

Amazing fort to visit, lots of steps on the way to the top but worth the effort. Monkeys all over the place so hold onto your stuff. Wonderful views over the jungle and local countryside. Two 'in use' temples at the top, one a jain temple the other a Ganesha temple (which we visited, got blessed and left a donation)

A very large fort but in a dilapated condition. Despite being a world heritage site, there is no signage anywhere. Be ready for a steep climb. The fort has a ganesh temple where the deity has three eyes. Local people flock to the temple.
