Heritage Rail Journey
Located about 2 hours from Mana Hotels in Ranakpur, is a wonderful hidden train journey. Originating from Phulad station and terminating at Khambli Ghat station, this 1.5 hour journey gives the passengers a peak into the history of this area aside from offering great views of the Aravallis. If you are lucky, you may even spot some wildlife such as Langoors, Peacocks and Deer's. This is a meter gauge line and also one of the highest tracks in the western railway system of India. The landscape is dramatic and does not stay constant. There is a good mix of steep hills, flowing water and plains. All in all a picturesque journey through a relatively unexplored part of Rajasthan.
