We had pre-booked the 4:30PM slot for Ziplining. This, in my opinion, is a good one as you can get beautiful views of the city when the sun goes down as you zip-line!
Is it safe? How long is the activity?
Zip lining at the Mehrangad Fort is conducted by Flying fox with European Safety measures. This is an outstanding way to see the fort from sides you cannot go otherwise. There are 6 zip lines altogether and it takes a little more than an hour to finish off the activity. The time however depends on the number of people in the group. There were about 12 people in our group in that slot and our activity was at 4:30 PM. It was 5 PM when we started off with the group after a short practice session. The time was perfect to see the sunset as well.
How was the experience?
It was an outright ‘magical’ experience for me as I was doing the Zip lining for the first time and at a striking location! Like I mentioned, we went to spots which we would have not seen otherwise!
It started off with a practice session of 15 minutes on a small zip. This made sure that everyone was comfortable with the idea. The following zips were part of the the activity –
Zip 1: Chokelao Challenge (115m) glides over lush, green Chokelao Garden, with great views of the Blue City
Zip 2: Ranisar Rollercoaster (170m) launches off a battlement, accessed through a secret tunnel, and flies high over Ranisar Lake
Zip 3: Chhota Wallah (70m) is short but sweet, crossing a deep rocky ravine at the head of the lake
Zip 4: Jai Jodha (270m) is a superb long zip line, buzzing the ridges and flying deep into the heart of Rao Jodha Park
Zip 5: Rajputs’ Revenge (160m) launches from a rocky mountain top with glorious views of Mehrangarh
Zip 6: The Magnificent Marwar (300m) is one of Flying Fox’s most spectacular and iconic zip lines, flying over not one but two lakes and landing on the tip of a fortified tower rearing 30 metres out of Ranisar Lake.
The blue city view from the fort is gorgeous and so is the fort itself. In the evening, the lit lights at the fort adds up to its magnificence and luckily we got to see that as well.
Tip – You don’t need to buy fort entry tickets or camera ticket for Zip lining. You need those tickets only to enter the fort from the common entrance. Also, please book the activity online to get discounts.
