Day 2: Ghanerao – Kumbhalgarh Trek (14 Kms Approx)
After breakfast we start our trek from the hotel, In the first half ,the terrain would be flat and gentle uphill, second half in the end as we come close to the fort it would be a strenuous uphill climb but quite enjoyable as we will do our trekking in the sanctuary area where the environment is so calm and peaceful with greenery all around, also if lucky we might spot some good wildlife here, we will stop at the crocodile lake to see the crocs, this lake in the local language is called “Thandi Beri”.
There is also a tribal village in the sanctuary area where reside the “Bhil” tribe and passing through it would be an amazing experience.
Later we finish our trek close to the Kumbhalgarh fort which is a UNESCO world heritage site and claimed to have the 2nd largest fortified wall in the world, we will spend an hour or two at the fort and then we will have lunch at a local restaurant after which we will drive back to our hotel.
