Kumbhalgarh holidays

Kumbhalgarh is a famous 15th century fort at a distance of around 84 km from Udaipur in the northwestern Indian state of Rajasthan. The fort city is well connected to the other parts of Rajasthan by road. The wall of the fort stretches some 36 km and is situated at a height of 1,914 m, making it quite inaccessible in the medieval times. The fort provides a good view of the countryside from the top. The place also has the honor of being the birthplace of great rajput warrior king Rana Pratap. The fort encloses many temples, palaces, gardens, and water storage facilities. Apart from the fort, Kumbhalgarh has many more sites for a tourist willing to explore. The 586 sq km Kumbhalgarh Wildlife Sanctuary is also a place worth a visit. A rich variety of wildlife like the panther, sloth bear, wild boar, four-horned antelope, and scientifically bred crocodiles in the lake within the sanctuary are the major attractions of this sanctuary. During winters, the sanctuary becomes home to birds like flamingoes, cormorants, spoonbills and egrets, which stay there through the winter months and fly back once summer arrives.
