Mount Abu is the one and only hill station in arid Rajasthan and is surprisingly surrounded by lush greenery. Though the famous Dilwara temples atop the hill station are its chief attraction as these were made more 1000 years ago, sunset from its famous sunset point and leisurely boat ride on the Nakki lake are equally popular. The forest around Mount Abu is dense as it is part of the Aravalli range leading to creation of interesting camping and picnic areas. The peaks and crevices around this range of mountains keep the temperatures low and provide right atmosphere for adventure activities in Mount Abu like exploring caves, trekking, rappelling and rock climbing. To enjoy your trip to this charming location in Rajasthan take a trekking and camping tour of Mount Abu which is the best way to explore the hills and trails of this region as spacious tents provide rest after a long trek along the peaks of Aravalli ranges.
As Mount Abu is a small hill station that can be covered within a couple of days if one moves around in a hired vehicle, it is best to explore it on foot to understand its true essence. Take a trek to Guru Shikhar the highest point on the Aravalli ranges for a strategic view of the horizon and then continue trekking to the ruins of Shergaon and Oriya village.
