About the destination:
Kumbhalgarh is a true feather in Rajasthan’s triumphant touristy cap. It has everything that helps make Rajasthan so attractive to travellers- it has temples and forts and the old wartime glory hideouts, with an occasional shopping site thrown in here and there. The added bonus is that it contains World Heritage Sites, proving how worthy of acclaim it really is, historically, architecturally, culturally, and so on. The area of Kumbhalgarh spreads fairly into and around the Aravalli Hills too, with major destinations located here, and that increases the overall appeal of it all.
From the mysterious Machchindrapur to Mahore to the present-day majestic Kumbhalgarh Fort, this second-largest continuous wall of India dedicatedly protects the hidden secrets of an ancient desert city, the mysteries of a forgotten era, the unfolding of the royal heritage of an enigmatic land. This beautifully and architecturally etched edifice of Kumbhalgarh is neatly tucked on the westerly range of Aravalli Hills in the Rajsamand District in Rajasthan. Kumbhalgarh owes a lot of its popularity to the beautiful and historical city of Udaipur that attracts a lot of tourists from all across the globe all through the year.
