Trip to Kumbhalgarh – A Beautiful Destination On A Budget

Posted on Jun 28 2015 - 6:14pm by Hetal Shah

Ah! Finally, I am writing about my trip to Kumbhalgarh. It was a family trip. We were 14 people who went Kumbhalgarh together. Among all, I was the most excited one for the trip, the reason was, I was getting a chance to go out of Ahmedabad after almost 2 years! Yes… Two Years and I know it’s a long time to stay at home and not going out at all. I was pregnant and then for one year, I was at home only with my kid. However, we decided during pregnancy time only that we will take a trip; once our would enter toddler age!

So in March we started searching for a place to go. We had a few things in our mind and on the basis of that only, we supposed to decide the destination.

  1. Because Khushansh (my son) is just one year old, we did not want to take long Bus/Train Journey. We wanted to go to a place through a self drive by road such that we can take breaks as and when required.
  2. We were firm; Not To Overspend. We were 4 families together and per family, out budget was not more than 20K.
  3. We wanted to visit a place which is not much commercialized at the same time it must have natural beauty. We did not want to visit a place which is man made, It has to be nature’s made place.
  4. We wanted to visit a place which has not been visited by any of us in the past.
  5. We wanted to visit one place only at a time. Means not covering 2-3 places/cities at a time. We wanted to visit a place and enjoy it thoroughly for 3-4 days.

So these were 5 needs/things we wanted to follow mutually. After searching online, we finally found the place which fulfills our criteria, Which is near to nature, not much commercialized, can be reached through a road trip and last but most important thing A Beautiful Destination On A Budget. – “kumbhalgarh”
