Kumbhalghar Fort: 2 hour drive from Udaipur

Pictures are taking forever to upload but you can see pics and read about this place online. It’s been one of my highlights so far in India. A fortress second only to the Great Wall of China. It is breathtaking. A must see.No buses or trains go there so hire a driver. Apparently, from Udaipur you should be able to get there and back for 1500 rupees. I paid 2000 but Prem my driver was excellent and had perfect English. He took me to the fort, organised a safari (3,500 rupee is standard but we got it for 3,200) The cost of travelling solo! Sadly I think the lunch we shared was what gave me the jippy tum tum so be careful dining there. Perhaps you can go to one of the swish spots or the new Kumbhalgar Safari Camp place looks fab. You could dine there or even splash out and rent one of the cottages for a mere 6,500 rupee. They are on Tripadvisor and are part of Truly India hotel chain..They have a swimming pool so it might be a lively treat night. Pack your togs!
