With effective from March23 to April01, 2012, the elephant ride to Amber Mahal will be closed. This development is due to the Navratri festival that attracts a huge crowd of devotees to pay a visit to Shila Mata Temple.
For the Nine days it might be possible to provide short elephant rides at Kesar Kyari/Maotha Lake parking ground. However, the jeep/car ride and hill climb will be regular from back road.
The rides at Maotha Lake might also be totally closed on the peak mela dates.
The Peak Mela Dates are:
March23, 2012 – 01st Day – Navratra Staphna
March29, 2012 – 07th Day – Chhath Navratra Mela
March31, 2012 – 09th Day – Asthmi Mela
