Elephant Ride

This is an opportunity to ride an elephant up the Amber Fort just as the Rajasthan royalty once did. A raised platform allows you to mount the animal with ease and sit in a comfortable, specially designed and secure seat, as the elephant winds its way up the ramparts of the fort. The elephants are gentle and are accompanied by a mahout (a person who guides the elephant). The elephants are decorated beautifully using chalk and powers to make stunning floral and geometric patterns.
