When I look back at pictures of this fort , I wonder how I kept going right to the top in the eleventh week of my pregnancy ( I didn’t know then !!! Seriously !) . Stories of the great Mewar warriors and the tale of Maharana Pratap’s birth narrated by the guide regaled me on that unforgiving hot afternoon. The guide was a patient man and let me rest every few minutes while at the same time he kept egging me on to keep going , promising me a breathtaking view of the great wall of Kumbalgarh , second only to the Great wall of China.
Looking back , I feel elated that I managed to go all the way up and grateful that all was well despite the strenuous trek .
