Mount Abu

Preferred leisure destination of many

Mount Abu is like a breath of fresh air in the parched desert of Rajasthan. The only hill station in Rajasthan, it is located 1,722 metres above sea level and is situated amidst the lush green hills on the highest point of the Aravallis range. It used to be a preferred leisure destination of the ruling royal family back when the Maharajas reigned. A striking feature about Mount Abu is posh houses, which are a blend of British style bungalows and holiday lodges of the royals, sharing space with the rustic abodes of various tribal communities residing in the forests. Possessing great scenic beauty, this quaint hill station is home to lakes, waterfalls and green forests. You can also enjoy blossoming flowers and trees that are indigenous to this region. Mount Abu also houses a sanctuary where you can spot animals such as langur, sambar, wild boar and leopards. Mount Abu is home to many religious monuments, the most famous being the Dilwara temple, Brahmakumari Ashram, Guru Shikhar and the shrines of Jainism. This hill station is not only a peaceful and beauty-laden getaway but also an ideal place for a sacred pilgrimage.
