The Hill top !!!

It is a highest peak of Rajasthan though you still need to have favor from nature to enjoy its beauty . One should plan to cover this sight as early as possible in the morning, reaching this hill top and that too after a bike ride will be of real fun.

Breathtaking view of the Aravalis

Guru Shikhar is the highest point in the region and from here one can enjoy the new of the Aravalis and the Mount Abu city. Perched on the top, a temple of Guru Dattatreya is located hence the name Guru Shikhar. There is also a temple of Atri an the Mount Abu Observatory located on top. You have to trek up and it can be a tedious climb but it's worth it. There a bunch of shops and stalls for snacks and drinks.Overall, it's an awesome place. A must visit!

Good climb by road and then by on foot

It gives panoramic view of most part of Mt Abu and far flung mountain ranges. During peak tourist period, traffic congestion is biggest problem. One has to drive carefully on sharp road bends.
