HolidayIQ traveller Gopal says, "Badal Mahal located at highest point of Kumbhalgarh Fort gives a beautiful view of surroundings and you feel very close to clouds justifying its name as Badal Mahal."

2. Kumbhalgarh Wildlife Sanctuary

HolidayIQ traveller Gautam tells you all about it- "The place is really good. And it is really a popular choice among travellers, because the jungle is absolutely stunning. Enjoy the various species of birds and animals - and don't get disappointing if you don't see a panther or a leopard. Alternately, if you see do consider it as an additional bonus. The rides are restricted by the forest department. Though, I feel, people have to be educated in India to be less noisy."

3. Ranakpur Jain Temples

HolidayIQ traveller Bhagyashree says,"Beautiful!! This beauty can't be expressed in words. What an amazing construction! Definitely, you get tremendous solace and peace while we are inside the temple! Easy way to reach. Pure Jain food being served. They even have stay in facilities. Otherwise there are many good hotels nearby to make the stay even more pleasant."

4. Vedi Temple

The Vedi Temple is situated next to the Hanuman Gate of the Fort. This three storied Jain temple was built by Rana Kumbha to commemorate the sacrifice of the pilgrim, after which the Hanuman Pol was built. Later, the structure was renovated by Maharana Fateh Singh. It is considered to be the only surviving remnant of all the sacrificial places of India.

5. Kumbhalgarh Fort

HolidayIQ traveller Nishit says, "This is one HUGE fort. The outer wall goes on and on and on and on; it is close to 12 km long. There are not too many buildings still standing within the fort - you can see them all within an hour or two. The real joy is just walking along the wall of the fort and peering outwards at the magnificent views.A few tips - It is about 2 hours by road from Udaipur but only in a private taxi. Connectivity by public transport is terrible (it took us 4+ hours and around 4 vehicle changes). Try to reach there early in the morning because it is hard to walk afar post 11 am due to the intense heat. Carry water. You can buy it at the entrance as well. There are no shops inside the fort area."
