The Nahargarh Hill Amidst the Aravalli Range
Out of all the historical places to See in Jaipur, Nahargarh may not be on top due to its accessibility. But it is the most happening and beautiful place in Jaipur. The best sunset and sunrise point of Jaipur, and certainly a common point of interest for every locality in Jaipur.
Above all, the Nahargarh fort which is at a height of above 700 feet from sea level provides a panoramic view of the city and the Aravalli forests. Our Bike tour to the Nahargarh fort through the Aravalli forests is a very challenging excursion
The Cobbled Climb
This used to be the pathway for elephants and Horses in those days, it is a strenuous and challenging climb to the top, at the same time the view is equally rewarding as we reach the top of the town. we have the option to park the bikes at the foothill of Nahargarh and hike to the top.
As we approach closer Nahargarh fort we take a short break at Charan Mandir ( a temple dedicated to Lord Krishna). Moreover one can easily get the best panoramic view of Jaipur city in front and The dense Jungle of Nahargarh Biological Park at the foothill of The Aravalli Mountains.

On reaching the peak, we get a majestic view of the beautiful Man Sagar Lake (Jal Mahal).

Brilliantly curated ride in the fresh Jaipur air
An overwhelmingly positive experience, the bike ride by Le Tour De India, up and down the Nahargad Fort Hill was one of the best memories from our trip. I was a little apprehensive about the price at first but it was worth every rupee. We began from the lake palace and went all the way up to the Nahargad Fort. The cycles provided to us were excellent, comfortable and well equipped to help with the climb. Nikhil, our guide, was a great instructor, and an outstanding host. Single digit temperatures couldn’t take away our fun. More
Perfekter Start in den Tag
Der krönende Abschluss meines Jaipuraufenthaltes waren zwei morgendliche Biketouren mit Chandraveer und seinem Team. In der Altstadt frühmorgens mit dem Bike kleine Gassen und Hinterhöfe zu entdecken, beim Lassi-Wala in der MI Road das beste Lassi zu trinken, die Morgenzeremonie im Govind Devi Tempel zu erleben und den schönen Park des Tempels zu besuchen, More
Early morning cycling to Nahargarh Fort
Me and my friend were quiet nervous about the cycling tour to nahargarh fort as we had to climb up the hill. We almost lost in between but our guide Umesh motivated us and we reached the destination. View was mesmerizing from there, as it was chilly morning and fog on Aravali Range. Over all it was challenging yet memorable trip. Definitely Recommended. Source
A Ride to Remember
For a pretty casual bike riders like me and my friend Arun even the thought of having a ride to Nahargarh fort was an uphill task in itself.To be frank we were a group of 6 Radiology residents who came to Jaipur from Assam with the twin purpose of attending a national conference and to experience the much talked about beauty of Rajasthan.But barring me and Arun no one had much enthusiasm regarding the bike ride.Infact it was Arun who came up with this bloody genius idea.So the idea became a reality on the 7th of January,2017.

A different side of Jaipur
Our India tour operator organized a bike ride, not a bike tour for me while in Jaipur. Amesh (the rider), met me at the hotel, the night before to plan the ride. I liked him immediately. I asked him to please consider it a friendly ride, among avid cyclists in and around Jaipur. My plan was to visit the city and Fort by bike, as I had done it by car. More
Bicycling in Jaipur
My friend and I took a morning bicycle tour with Umesh and Le Tour de India in Jaipur. It was a wonderful way to see the city early before the pace and density of the traffic picks up. They provided the bikes and helmets. The bikes were good quality and rode well. I’m very comfortable biking around large, foreign cities after years of bike touring, so I found this easy and pleasurable. More
Challenging ride to Nahargarh Fort
I went for the Nahargarh Fort cycle ride that Le Tour organized. They organized the tour for me inspite of being a solo traveller, that proves their authenticity. Umesh was the guide, his passion for cycling and outdoor activities really made the tour that much better. Nahargarh fort is a challenging ride, so anyone doing this should be prepared, but it was well paced. Luckily we had good weather! Source
Just what we wanted!
We were 4 people who had a day together in Jaipur and opted for this bike trip to Nahargarh fort. None of us had cycled in years but all our doubts were cleared when we met our guide Umesh- he is professional, friendly and really knows what he’s doing. We could easily connect with him and that made for a great start. More
Morning tour to Nahargarh Fort
Getting up early in the morning was all worth it! We started our tour with Umesh from the Water Temple in Jaipur. The bikes were very good and helmets were there for safety. We started the tour uphill with some stops on the way to enjoy the view of Jaipur by sunrise. More
Fantastic experience! Must be lived again!
I Just randomly scrolled through ‘things to do in Jaipur’ when I stumbled upon this Le Tour De India. And not having made any prior bookings before leaving from Delhi…I reached and I was adviced against it to take on this ‘adventurous tour.’ I’m glad I didn’t take their advice. Because it was one of the most fantastic experiences I’ve had in a while. More
Un effort qui en vaut la peine !
Nous avons retrouvé umesh en face du jal Mahal pour s’attaquer au tour après avoir lus tous ces excellents retours d’expérience. En voici un de plus :
Après un petit briefing rassurant pour des cyclistes amateurs qui s’apprêtent à aborder une montée de + de 7 km en vélo, nous sommes montés en selle. More
Nahargarh cycle tour
We took the cycling trek till the Nahargarh fort. It was an amazing experience. Both Mr. Valen and Mr. Umesh were patient enough to bear with our amateur cycling skills. Also, the conversations and all the stories, both horror and funny made it only more memorable. More
Bicycle trip to Nahargarh Fort and Jaipur city.
I booked two trips to the Jaipur city and Nahargarh fort. The Jaipur city trip was fantastic,we saw old city and delightful food stalls,tasted some classic culinary delights, had chick pea fritters with the local tea on a roof top with great views. Visited some beautiful temples, immersed in the local culture, travelling through the old narrow laneways and seeing everything up close and personal which is not possible in a car. More
Incredible and exhilarating ride to Nahargarh Fort
The ride up to Nahargarh Fort was definitely a workout but ultimately well worth it for the spectacular views overlooking the city. Our guide was personable and very helpful throughout the entire ride. More
What a great ride!!
Bored of our mundane lives, we ended up in Jaipur for a long weekend. Apart from the regular site seeing, shopping and food tasting,we wanted to do something different and exactly then we met Umesh. He was definitely the answer to our prayers cause we experienced Jaipur like never before. More
Incredible way to experience the real Jaipur
Just got round to writing this review of a bike tour we took in November with Le Tour De India. What an incredible experience we had, can’t thank Khush and his team enough for such a wonderful morning. We wanted to combine two bikes tours in one taking in the village bike tour as well as including some uphill riding to give us a work out. Khush made the whole experience a pleasure. More
I had a great morning it was early so the traffic was manageable I felt completely safe on my bike with the team. They are really running a professional service by International standards. My guide was also a local though a traveler very open minded in his attitude to life and I found him inspiring. Nothing was any trouble and it was a relaxed pace to enjoy the moment. Source
Thoroughly enjoyable tour
Exploring the city of Jaipur in the quiet hours of dawn on a bicycle is hands down one of the most relaxing ways to experience this otherwise bustling city. Our guides Umesh and Kushal were excellent. Being novice riders, we initially had reservations about the tour, but those were to put to bed by our guides who made the entire experience very comfortable right from the offset. More
