Kumbhalgarh on Independence Day

I am planning to take a cab from Jodhpur to Udaipur on Aug 15, via Ranakpur and Kumbhalgarh.

Do you think these locations will be open on Independence Day? Please advise.

Typically except for the Red Fort area in Delhi, no other monuments or areas in India are closed for Independence Day. We celebrate the flag hoisting early in the morning, and after that it's a normal day. Schools, colleges, banks and offices are closed. Delhi is a real pain, though. Lots of security and road blocks.

Yes ,, Ranakpur & Kumbhalgarh or other monuments remain open on 15th August

A good moment to be at kumbhalgarh - birth place of great worrier Maharana Pratap who is also known as first freedom fighter

I was checking for distances and it seems Ranakpur is a good 3 hours away from Jodhpur. Is it feasible to start from Jodhpur in the morning and cover both these places and then reach Udaipur on the same day? Will it end up being a rushed tour? Although this was our initial plan, we are having second thoughts whether it would make sense to stay overnight in Kumbhalgarh/Ranakpur and proceed to Udaipur the next day?

Hello vsat ,

You can easily reach to udaipir after covering both sites ..jodhpur to ranakpir is 180 km - it is +3 hours drive and maximum 40 minute to visit Ranakpur - lunch in ranakpur temple or enroute at Harmony restaurant - a reasonable price small restaurant.

There is another an hour to reach kumbhalgafh 55 km..

Need minimum. An hour foe kumbhalgarh fort visit - climbing. Up..

And 2 more hours to reach udaipur 86 km

Hello udaipurmagic,

With these inputs, I think proceeding to Udaipur the same day sounds feasible. Thank you so much for the information.
