source: HolidayIQ

The fort is the second largest wall in the world after the Great Wall of China and the second largest fort in Rajasthan after Chittorgarh Fort. HolidayIQ Traveller Rajshekhar Roy from Hyderabad shares, “Nestled amidst the Aravalli hills, Kumbhalgarh in Rajasthan offers a great weekend getaway for those looking for a place to relax and unwind in a serene and secluded place. It is located between Udaipur and Mt. Abu and tourists visiting these places would find it worth their while to make a stopover here just to see the imposing Kumbhalgarh fort. The fortress replete with history of Rajput valour, is also the birthplace of Maharana Pratap, Stretching across a vast expanse, the kumbhalgarh fort is formidable and majestic, with palace rooms, gardens, courtyards and some beautifully sculpted temples. The ramparts of the fort present ruggedly beautiful views of the surrounding hills. There is also a sound and light show, which is very well presented, explaining the history of the fort.”

HolidayIQ Traveller Raghav Mehta from Meerut shares, “The quietness, serenity and loftiness of Udaivilas is a thing to be felt instead of read about. The property is enormous with wonderful construction modelling and finished gardens. I was stunned to see the flying creature mixtures in the greenhouses of the lodging. Watching peacocks move from the sit out of your room gives you an extraordinary feeling. The rooms are open and very much outfitted. The administration is great. One of the exceptional properties in India!”

source: HolidayIQ

HolidayIQ Traveller Chitra shares about the view from Panorama Hotel, Leh, “I was on motorbike expedition to Ladakh and was spending several nights in Leh. As name suggests, hotel Panorama being situated just below Shanti stupa gives excellent view of Leh town as well as Stok-Kangri mountain range. Having one entire side glass wall gives excellent feel of surroundings even if you are sitting in the room. Hotel has a small lawn which is green during summer seasons. Being away from market gives you the required quiet time. Not recommended for those who hate walking.”

Prabal Fort, however in ruins, is among the most ancient monuments of the region. The fort was perched on Prabal Hills on the western side of Matheran. This historical fort was captured by the Maratha ruler Chhatrapati Shivaji from Mughals. As per historians, there was treasure at the fort during the time of capture. HolidayIQ Traveller Mahesh Pathak from Pune shares, “This fort is of interest to me since many many photographs of Kalavantin durg are taken from top of Prabalgad. Its dense at the top and no water available so take care to carry sufficient water with you (Specially in summer season).”
