The last few kilometres are quite challenging as it is an uphill ride, so you may take the backup saddle to reach the town.

If time permits, we can take a tour of the Kumbhalgarh Fort which looks stunning when lit up at night. Perched atop Aravalli Hills, the Mewar fortification was built in the 15th century. The view from the fort is surreal as it is surrounded by thirteen hill peaks. Besides, the wall of the fort is 38kms long which is considered the second largest after the Great Wall of China. The grandeur of the fort is highly renowned that it was never been attacked or captured by enemies. The striking fort has more than 300 temples and certain architectural wonders that take at least two hours to visit.
