Cycling in the ranges and upcountry is becoming another interesting activity in the region.

Tourists flock to Udaipur in every season, not only to explore the city but also to partake in its growing wildlife and trekking activities. The surrounding Aravalli Hills make Udaipur an eco-trekking destination, with immense potential for further growth in this sector.

Key trekking and wildlife hotspots in Udaipur include Kumbhalgarh, Sajjangarh, Phulwari Ki Naal, and Jaisamand. These areas attract high tourist footfall and are popular weekend getaways for locals.

A new tiger reserve is under construction at Kumbhalgarh. Additionally, Sajjangarh, Phulwari Ki Naal, and Jaisamand are being developed for jungle safaris. The Forest Department has designated trekking points in these areas, and annual monsoon treks are organized every year. Sajjangarh will soon feature a Lion Safari, and work on a giraffe enclosure is in progress, adding new attractions to Udaipur’s wildlife offerings.

Growing Trend in Forest Tourism

The World Wildlife Federation occasionally organizes eco-trails, but there is a need for greater promotion, as per reports in Rajasthan Patrika. The Forest Department has initiated various forest tourism activities around the city, which require more visibility. Under the Forest Conservator North, activities at Mewar Biodiversity Park and the Valley of Flowers (Nagar Van Udhyan) are ongoing. A Butterfly Park inauguration is also planned, alongside the development of Luv Kush Garden and City Forest, where jungle safaris are already operational.
