Hello,

We are planing for a trip for kumbhalgarh fort, Kumbhalgarh wildlife sanctuary and Ranakpur in late Dec. We are traveling from Udaipur in early morning to Kumbhalgarh, and staying overnight in the area possibly.

1. How we could go the Kumbhalgarh wildlife sanctuary? What is the opening hours?
2. Where could we get the local guides for sanctuary?
3. How long each stop should take? (p.s. we only have 1 day and not sure if it is enough... ).

Thanks!
Sonia

Ranakpur is surrounded by hotels so I believe you would not have much trouble.

Depending on the type of stay you want, Kumbhalgarh have a few options. Near the fort there are a few hotels, but they looked expensive to me. I have heard good things about Dera Kumbhalgarh Tent House (@2000/-), the hotels can also arrange for jeep rides inside the sanctury. There is a small FRH at Kumbhalgrah, as is one inside the Sanctuary at Thandiberi. Though without electricity and running water.


If you are going from Udaipur to Kumbhalgarh, you can get the necessary permissions from Udaipur. Deputy Conservator of Forests, Udaipur Wildlife has administrative Control over Kumbhalgarh. His office phone No. should be 0294 2453686 and cell No. 09414156229. The present incumbent, Mr. Rahul Bhatnagar is an experienced and helpful officer who may be contacted for details. I hope he could help you with some recommendations on guides as well.

Hope that would have helped.

Cheers,
Kartik

Could I get the permission via travel agency who organised those excursion? Or do I just need the guide and permission for the trip (no travel agency tour)? How long will those trip usully take?

Could I have Mr. Rahul Bhatnagar's official email? I am not staying in India so it might be easier to contact Mr. Rahul with email.

Sorry Sonia.

I do not really have his email. The company arranging trip may be able to get you permissions. I am not sure about that.

Regards,
Kartik
