Day 1

Visiting the spookiest place of India was at the top of my travel list. While my stay in Jaipur I took a road trip to Bhangarh fort and this experience cannot be described just in words. It was not just reaching Bhangarh, the whole journey was a complete package. So if you ever want to visit there try to take a bike or scooty trip.

It took me around 4 hours to reach BHANGARH via Jaipur-Alwar highway. The roads were well maintained except for some remote areas where it was quite difficult on a scooty. The view all along was beautiful and i felt like stopping for a moment and admire the beauty of RAJASTHAN. Do stop at any Tapri for some local Rajasthani snacks.

Although the fort is almost a ruin but the very idea of being there sent me chills down the spine. It took me 2-3 hours to explore the whole fort. It gave me an overall idea of how beautiful the palace must have been when it used to be whole. Beware of the monkeys because if they spot you with snacks in your hand they will try to snatch it away. There were several temples inside. It depicted some marvellous architectural skills of that era.
I saw peacocks, moneys, kangaroos, pigeons and some other birds in the campus. All the stories that i heard about Bhangarh were running through my mind. I cant say whether they were true or not but as a traveller I enjoyed the whole journey and it was enough for me.
The fort closes at 6 pm and no one is allowed to stay there overnight

I had some tea and sandwiches in a restaurant near the fort. It was already dark while I prepared to return. The roads were darker than I had imagined and it was a chilly January night. I enjoyed every moment of it. The memories are still vivid. I returned via Jaipur-Delhi highway and this was was well constructed and I could ride smoothly all the way. I remember once I stopped somewhere in a remote area just to look at the stars. The last time I saw this many stars in the sky was in my childhood at my village. It looked so beautiful and that view was the perfect end to this trip.

Although I would request my fellow travellers not to litter in or around the Fort campus. We have to preserve our history. It was a bit disappointing to see the wrappers and bottles thrown carelessly inside the fort.
