Travelling up the hill to the Amber fort could be as exciting as sightseeing through the fort. There are three options of reaching the top of the fort.
You can park your car in the parking below and walk up to the fort.
You can take permission and drive your car upto the fort.
The last and most exciting one is park the car and take an elephant ride to the fort, just like the kings and their queens used to.
Reaching the top of the fort you can take a guided tour and hire an escort if you have not already brought one with you. The price for hiring the escort can be negotiated and you can always get a good bargain. The fort has a lot to offer in terms of architecture which can hardly be explained in a few words and you need almost half a day to go through the whole fort. But its a must for foreign travellers as this is one of the greatest forts of Rajasthan.
