One fine day we friends decided to go on a trip to Mt. Abu. The very next day we took one of our friend's car and at early morning we headed for Mt. Abu. The route is very well-facilitated with restaurants, dhabas, petrol pumps and accommodations. One can even take the route of Mehsana-Ambaji and visit the temple. We opted NH-8. The journey was fun with friends.
The train time was at night and as it was a 7 hours journey and we reached Mount Abu early morning. Then we took a taxi and reached Mount Abu within 1 hour. After that we went to Cama Rajputana and got a room. The hotel was superb. On the first day we stayed in the hotel and enjoyed its amenities and the next day we went for sightseeing. We started with Adhar Devi and at evening we went to the sunset point. It was a very pleasant journey and you should definitely visit this place once.
Overall, good experience. GSRTC is improving and getting better. Bus stands are also getting cleaner and the best part is that with minimum fair you can travel a lot. Reached destination on time and getting food at various bus stands. Behaviour of driver was also good.
A nice place for a family trip. Do carry camera with you to take nice pics, the best time to go is the sunset time and click some memorable pics with the orange light surrounding the earth. Must see once. We went there during the cold season when the temperature is approximately 4 degree. It was the coldest day and we reach Abu by my own car. It was freezing out there. We enjoyed all through the trip.
It was an enjoyable and most promising experience so far. Must visit Ambaji and Unjha temples of Devi's before you actual start heading to Abu. Towards heading back to Ahmedabad on the highway, there is one restaurant which serves you delicious and yummy typical Punjabi parathas and sabji, that you must have it.
