Mount Abu stands tall in the State of Rajasthan and can be accessed by trains too. Mount Abu is the sole hill station in the region, and one should remember that there is a vast desert not far away. 

The chillness which blows in is the first excitement, and the rest of the action to follow is exemplary. The highest peak to the Nakki Lake with the Jain temples on the way are sights to see. It may sound less in number, but the quality is quite high. 

We start our mission to Mount Abu and finish it in three days.

Highlights

  • Mount Abu sightseeing tour: Unlike in lower Rajasthan, we have cold weather to accompany us as we scale the mountain to the highest peak and the observatory.
  • Explore the Dilwara Jain Temples- The temples built by the Jains and for the Jains stand majestically in a row. All five of them.
  • Boating on  Nakki Lake:   A lake surrounded by lush gardens, boating is an experience here, and never miss the majestic toad.
  • Watch fantastic sunset views from Sunset point: Sunset happens everywhere, but to watch it in its true glory, you need to be at Sunset point, Mount Abu.

Tour Itinerary

One way to get to Mount Abu is via train, and we disembark at the Abu Railway station, which is at 861 feet above the ground below. The railroad is one of the gateways to Mount Abu, which is also the sole hill station in the state of Rajasthan.

You would arrive at the hotel, where the rooms are ready for you. It’s almost noon by now, and you can relax after having Lunch and a small nap till we hit the streets in the evening. The hotel is also lush green and has well-maintained lawns for you to relax. 

You are free to visit and shop whatever you require on day One as the sightseeing starts the next day. Enjoy breathing the pleasant and cold air of Mount Abu as night sets in, and dinner is ready. 

Day one is over.
Once breakfast is over, our first trip is to Guru Shikhar, which forms the highest point. The Aravalli range runs thousands of Kilometers, and Guru Shikhar is its highest point located in Mount Abu. It stands at 5650 feet, and 15 kilometers from Mount Abu. Guru Shikhar is Dattatreya, who is none other than Lord Vishnu in his incarnate. There is a cave, at the peak, along with a temple dedicated to him. Close by is the observatory with powerful Telescopes, and many Astronomical findings are from Mount Abu observatory.

We have to descend from the mountain peak and go to the famous Five Jain Temples, which are called Dilwaras. The construction began in the 11th century and ended after five centuries in the 16 century. The Jain Temples are an architectural wonder and are constructed purely out of white Marbles. Apart from the fact that they serve as a tourist attraction, the Dilwara is a pilgrimage spot for the Jain Community. The Architecture is exquisite but straightforward, and the walls carry carvings made out of marble. The traditional belief that Jain’s are not money minded is well reflected in this marvelous Dilwaras because one can see it is simple. Still, they have followed a stringent policy in not wasting finances lavishly. The last temple is in dedication to the final Tirthankara, Shri Mahaveer Swami. 

It is post-lunch now and early evening, as we set ourselves to visit Nakki lake. Apart from the fact that this lake is considered sacred by the Hindu’s, it serves as a tourist attraction in a big way. There are boating facilities here and five islands that you need to visit. The real draw, however, is the rock formation of a Toad. The rocky toad looks as if it is going to be a giant leap into the waters. It is a natural formation, and the boat takes you there, to relax under the shade of the toad.

There are plenty of lush green gardens around the Nakki lake for one to walk and relax, except one pathway which climbs into the mountains, believed to be inhabited by dacoits.

You make your way to the sunset point now. It is advisable to have a booking for a spot there. Here you can witness the glorious sunset from many angles as it spreads the superlight on the whole mountain, and the trees and plants sparkle in golden-like color. 

And on our way back, you would be dropped at the local bazaar to do some shopping of the domestic artifacts for your memorabilia.

Piccadilly Plaza is the ideal place to start your shopping in Mount Abu. It is an emporium and has two floors, one which sells Rajasthan clothes and the other is marble and metal combined handicrafts. The other product it is famous for is the antiques that are again a combination of silver and bronze.

The next spot is the Bansilal Bhurmal, which is in the primary market. Here, it is the Jaipur Quilts, which sell like hotcakes. The quilts are quite light in weight and contain great artistry. The Bansilal Burma is a trendy outlet in Mount Abu, and generally very crowded.

After that, it's back to the hotel for dinner and well-deserved sleep.
Do have breakfast for one last time in Mount Abu, and we would provide you escort services to the Railway station. 

As you descend the mountain and watch the city below, which would look so tiny, you would remember the giant toad under which you basked. 

Conclusion : Mount Abu, apart from the tourist attractions of temples and peaks, is best sought for the weather. The heat of the desert blows into Rajasthan, and Mount Abu is the only escape. An extended stay is the best way to enjoy Mount Abu, with the coolness and friendliness.
