Tour Details

Overview

Join us for a full-day private tour to Kumbhalgarh, a small town known for its history and architecture. Here lies the great Kumbhalgarh Fort, built during 15th century by Maharana Kumbha. Expanded during 19th century, this fort is also the birth place of Maharana Pratap, the great king and warrior of Mewar. This almost invincible fort is the highest and most formidable in the state of Rajasthan. Even the mighty Mughal could not capture it alone and it took the combined armies of Delhi, Amber and Marwar to breach its defenses. Standing majestically on 3,600 foot high (1,100 meters) ridge and representing the past glory of the Rajput rulers, Kumbhalgarh Fort also provides a panoramic view of the countryside from the top.

Know More about this tour

A private air-conditioned vehicle will pick you up from your hotel in Udaipur at 8:00AM and transfer to Kumbhalgarh (approx. 2 hours). Built on a hilltop 3,600 feet (1,100 meters) above sea level, the fort of Kumbhalgarh is protected by the thirteen mountain peaks of the Aravali Range. The perimeter walls extend 22 miles (36 km) and frontal walls 15 feet wide. Kumbhalgarh has seven fortified gateways and over 360 temples within the fort, 300 ancient Jain and the rest Hindu. This is the second longest wall following the Great Wall of China. From the top of the palace you can see far into the Aravalli Range.

As one of the local legends, Rana Kumbha, the Maharana of Kumbhalgarh, was repeatedly unsuccessful in attempts to build the fort wall. A spiritual preceptor was consulted and advised the ruler that a voluntary human sacrifice would solve the impediment. The temple was to be built where the head should fall and the wall and the fort where the rest of his body lay. For some time no one volunteered until a pilgrim came forth and was ritually decapitated. Today the main gate of the fortress, Hanuman Pol, contains a shrine and a temple to commemorate the great sacrifice. When your tour ends, you will be transported back to your centrally located hotel in Udaipur city.
