Gagron Fort Trek

Gagron Fort  is among the rare forts which are both a vana and a jala durg - i.e. both water-protected and air-protected.

It is surrounded by forests and has behind it the Mukundarrah range of hills.

Gagron is a result of sacrifice of the womenfolk and superb heroism of its Khinchi rulers.

Immortal Raja Achaldas Khinchi held this fort valiantly against the Mandu ruler Hoshang Shah of Malwa.

When he was sure of defeat he along with his battalion of Rajputs rushed out of the open flung gates of the fort and attained martyrdom.

Their ladies performed Johar.

Gagron was once a teeming city in medieval India.

It ranked supreme in this part of Malwa when Bundi / Kota / Jhalawar were yet to appear as states on the princely map of the country.

I am so glad to share my thrillophilia reviews of Udaipur Trip.It was a wonderful experience for the day. Driver was quite polite and took us to all the places mentioned in the tour guide. Even the tour organiser was quite helpful in arranging the cab as it was a last minute booking. This trip will be remembered for a long time and will surely recommend it to others (infact already recommended)

It is a great deal. Beautiful place to stay. Owner Mr. Mahaveer is very humble and helpful person. Food was tasty & ample. The provided unlimited mineral water for us as and when required. Camel safari was also good & enjoyable. We enjoyed true Rajasthani folk cultural program at night. It was diwali on that particular day. They had arranged some in-house fireworks. Dark starlit sky, campfire, fireworks, folk music & wines - the whole ambiance was ecstatic. Overall a very good & comfortable stay. Only thing I would like to remind you that the region where the camp is located is named Osiyan. Here, you won't find complete desert like Jaisalmer. It is more like a terrain covered with thorny bush. Sand dunes are limited though the camel will take you to a nearby one. But, it's not a fault of owner. You will get compensated with their warm & humble hospitality.
"Desert camping in Jaisalmer remains highlights of your memories ????\nNice Food, Places, Scenic place..\n"
