The Kumbhalgarh Sanctuary is in the most rugged section of the Aravali mountain range.
Kumbhalgarh Wildlife Sanctuary takes its name from the majestic Kumbhalgarh Fort that is in the vicinity of the sanctuary. It is among the most fascinating wildlife hubs in Rajasthan. It was once a popular hunting ground of the royals. Later it was declared as a wildlife sanctuary in 1971.
