Photographer's Note

We have all heard of the Great Wall of China, of course, but have you heard of the Great Wall of India?

This is the 2nd largest/longest continuous wall in the world. It runs for 36 kilometres or 22 miles.
You will not find ANY tourists walking this wall as its very 'un-walkable', you can see its condition in my photo. Perhaps that is best, because the Great Wall of China has had its problems with condition and having to be renovated due to all the tourists.

If you look closely, you'll see the wall moving UP along the mountain in the upper portions of the photo, quite amazing.

This Great Wall is used mainly to protect the Kumbhalgarh Fort, a massive and impressive fort well worth visiting. You can see a piece of it in one of my WS photos. Built in the 15th century, it contains over 360 temples throughout its walls, walls that are 5 metres tall and 3 metres thick.

The main attraction here for tourists is clearly the huge fort, sadly, tourists don't take the time to explore the surrounding area away from the fort. Look what most people, almost all the people missed. I remember walking around here and it was just me, nobody else AT ALL. To be honest, I don't remember how I got up here haha, I wish I did, but clearly I found the wall and found a vantage point. It pays off to go away from the popular areas, and to explore if you have time.

Hope you like this one.
