Day 12

So we are approaching the end of this wonderful worldwind your of Northern India and today we had another long coach trip from Ranakpur to Udaipur, the third largest city in Rajasthan. En route we visited Kumbalgarh Fort. This fort is set in a remote area on top of a hill some 3,500 feet above sea level. The climb to the top required some effort but the views from the top repaid the effort. The fort has some 36 km of crenellated ramparts winding round the rim of the hilltop and able to take 6 horses abreast. After this visit which included another hairy ride up and down in a jeep we moved on to Udaipur and the wonderful City Palace where we are staying. This palace complex overlooks lake Pichola which fortunately has plenty of water this year and will mean we can take a lovely boat ride out to Jag Niwas, now the lake Palace Hotel. More later.....
