About Kumbhalgarh Wildlife Sanctuary 
Kumbhalgarh Wildlife Sanctuary is located in the most rugged region of the Aravali Hills in Pali, Rajsamand and Udaipur districts of Rajasthan. It has been named after the impressive historic fort of Kumbhalgarh, which come into view over the Park. It is 578 sq Km in area and at an altitude of 500 to 1,300m. It is home to a very large variety of wild life, some of which are highly endangered species. The wild life includes wolf, leopards, sloth bear, hyena, jackal, jungle cat, smabhar, nilgai, chaisingh (the four horned antelope), Chinkara and hare. The sanctuary's natural beauty is further heightened by a magnificent fort - the Kumbhalgarh fort located at a height of 1087 meter on the hilly terrains of the Aravalli range. This invincible fort was built by Rana Kumbha in 1458 and happens to be the second oldest fort of Rajasthan after Chittor fort. The fort is associated with the memory of Dhatri Panna and her supreme sacrifice wherein she gave away her own son to the enemy or attackers in her bid to save her master's son. There are several palaces or "Mahals" inside the fort but they are out of bound to visitors.


Wildlife at Kumbhalgarh Wildlife Sanctuary
The bird life at Kumbhalgarh is also gratifying. The normally shy and distrusted grey jungle fowl can be spotted here. Peacocks and Doves can be sighted regularly, feeding on grains scattered by the jungle guards. Bird like the red spur owls, Parakeets, golden Oriole, grey Pigeons, Bulbul, Dove and white breasted kingfisher can also be seen near the water holes. Natural beauty of Kumbhalgarh attracts many tourists and is accessible from Udaipur, which is 100 Km from here. A typical safari route enters the sanctuary from the Kumbhalgarh Fort and cutting across the sanctuary it reaches Ghanerao, and then borders an old abandoned road. On this road, one can sight Chinkaras, Neelgais, four horned Antelope and many birds.

The Kumbhalgarh sanctuary has a bewildering array of wildlife species like leopards, hyena, sloth bear, wolf, jackal, jungle cat, hare, nilgai and the four horned antelope all of which makes Kumbhalgarh any wildlife enthusiasts dream come true. Apart from the rich variety of wildlife species, Kumbhalgarh sanctuary is also a mecca for bird-watchers with numerous avian species that are residents of the sanctuary. The usually reticent jungle fowls are easily spotted along with white breasted kingfisher, parakeets, golden oriole, varieties of pigeons, bulbul, red owls to name just a few of the avian species that can be found in the haunting wilderness of the Kumbhalgarh sanctuary.

From the roof, one is assured of breath taking views of the Kumbalgarh sanctuary. During the scorching summer months from March to June, wild inmates of the sanctuary like antilopes, panthers, bears and wolves come to the adjoining lake to drink water and makes for a pretty sight. The Kumbhalgarh sanctuary is increasingly gaining in popularity particularly because of its proximity to the city of Udaipur.
