Weekly Photo Challenge: Zigzag Stairways in Rajasthan

Some of the stairways in India make their way unevenly upwards without anything to hold on to. Here are some perilous stairs around Rajasthan in northern India.

The zigzagging stairs up the orange wall at Amber Fort, Jaiper.

  2. You have posted photos of some of the visually appealing and colorful staircases. Rajastahn is as usual always so colorful and glittery. These are really perilous and often require concentration while climbing up or down. But however dangerous they may be, they make for the perfect post. 🙂
