Surrounded by wilderness and built on Aravalli Hills near Udaipur, Rajasthan, Kumbhalgarh Safari Camp is one of the great places for adventurous as well as leisure activities.

The resort is spread across 25 luxurious rooms, all of them offering a breathtaking view of the World Heritage Site “The Kumbhalgarh Fort” and the Aravali range.

All you need to do is make yourselves comfortable in these baroque rooms and we must take care of the rest.

We stayed there for 3 nights and 2 days. It was a memorable stay over there as it is giving a very good view as well as the resort is structured in a way you can see a wall of Kumbhalgarh from almost every room. The service and food were good. The staff over there was helpful and polite. The only issue over there was a network problem. Also, the resort doesn’t provide wi-fi connectivity, so if you are a person who wants a break from this fast-paced digital world and enjoys nature putting your phone aside, it is the best place for you to stay.

Day 2 (visited Kumbhalgarh fort and went for village safari)


The fort that has made its mark in history as the second largest wall after the Great Wall of China – it is none but the Kumbhalgarh fort in Rajasthan. The mighty fort is 3600 ft tall and 38km long that surrounds the area of Udaipur. It was considered to have been built by Rana Kumbha in the 15th century. The fort is further declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is under the group Hill Forts of Rajasthan. It is located strategically on the western Aravalli hills.

Having witnessed a large number of wars, the hill serves as the boundary that is unbreakable. The fort 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.

Day 4: Visited Udaipur city palace

Udaipur City palace:

Settled on the east bank of Lake Pichola, the City Palace in Udaipur was built around 400 years back. It is regarded to be the largest royal complex in the state of Rajasthan. The palace was put up during the time when the city of Udaipur was established, by Maharana Uday Singh and his successors in 1559. The Maharanas used to live in the palace and administer their kingdom.

Legends say that year before when the Maharana Uday Singh was on a hunting trail on the hills of Udaipur, he met a hermit who was meditating on the hill top.
