Note: At the Amer fort, Elephant rides are available to ascend to the entry gate but we do not recommend it not only because Services International Pvt. Ltd doesn’t suggest any elephant ride or animal performance in our tour but also because there is a risk of hurting yourself. There is a jeep ride available as well for a minimal supplement. To feast your eyes on the majestic Asian Elephant, you can opt a day visit from Jaipur itself to Elefantastic where experiences like feeding , walking & washing are offered to the guest without causing any trouble to the elephants.
