Mount Abu definitely gets an extra advantage as a tourist spot because this is the only single hill station in Rajasthan. Visitors come here from nearby parts of Rajasthan and Gujarat to get away from the summer heat and relax and unwind in the pleasant weather and comfortable climate of the place. The greenery all around adds to the beauty of the hill town. HolidayIQ Traveller Naseem says, "I had been there for three days with my family. I enjoyed each and every day. Summer is a perfect season to visit Mount Abu. Mount Abu is around 25 km from Sirohi railway Station, taxis are available outside the station. We enjoyed places like Nakki Lake, Guru Shikhar peak, Toad Rock, Sunset point, Dilwara Temple etc. I liked boating in Nakki lake, hot air balloon. There is also horse riding near Nakki lake but did not do due to fear."

Queen of Mountains.

Seeing can be believing. One has really to visit this place to believe. Words fail to enumerate my kind of feelings. I was really taken aback by the sheer beauty of mountains. I would really and strongly suggest to visit this heaven on the earth. Places like Guru shikhar, Gyan Sagar, Sun set point, Nakki lake and of course Honeymoon point are some of the places one must see.

Mount Abu Overview

History of Mount Abu

Mount Abu is the most famous hill destination in Rajasthan. It is located in the Sihori district, and is 58 km from Palanpur. Known earlier as Arbuda Anchal, Mount Abu has its throne fixed as the highest peak in Aravali Range of Rajasthan.Mount Abu has an interesting history. Historians believe that the original residents of Mount Abu were Gurjars. The association of Gurjars with Arbuda mountain (Mt Abu) dates back in many inscriptions and epigraphs found from this region. As early as in 6th century AD, Gurjars located themselves in Arbuda Mountain and many parts of Rajasthan and Gujarat. In mythology, it is said that Saint Vasistha performed his final recites and retired to the hills of Mount Abu due to his differences with sage Vishvamitra.

People and Culture of Mount Abu

Located at a height of 1220 meters from sea level, Mount Abu definitely gets an extra advantage as a tourist spot because this is the only single hill station in Rajasthan. Visitors come here from nearby parts of Rajasthan and Gujarat to get away from the summer heat and relax and unwind in the pleasant weather and comfortable climate of the place. The greenery all around adds to the beauty of the hill town. Mount Abu has many other spots that require special mention. This hill station is a place for many Jain Temples. The internationally acclaimed Dilwara Temples are a group of temples with beautifully carved white marble, which were built during 11th and 13th centuries AD.

The fort in itself encloses many Jain Temples - Achaleshwar Mahadev Temples and Kantinath Temple. For the devotees of Hindu goddesses, there is the Durga Temple and Ambika Mata Temple, which is located on a cliff in Jagat, near Mt Abu.Another popular location is Nakki Lake in Mount Abu.

Things To Do in Mount Abu

The best way to get around Mount Abu is either on foot, or preferably, by hiring a two-wheeler which most of the hotels organise for their guests. Tourists can shop for many items but the silver jewellery sold here is worth a mention. The market adjoining the Nakki Lake is where tourists can buy silver jewellery in various interesting and intricate designs, but bargaining is a must. Food available in Mount Abu is nothing exceptional. But, the hill station does have many ice cream shops that offer locally made and branded ice creams, which tourists can enjoy on a chilly evening.

However, many also visit Mount Abu during the summer season to escape the heat of the plain areas.Mount Abu is well connected to major cities of the country.
