Mount Abu City Guide

If your tour of India's desert state has left you exhausted and you'd like nothing better than a break from the heat and dust of Rajasthan, Mount Abu, the hill retreat set in sylvan forests may be just the place you need. Lying due west of Udaipur, about 185 km by road, this is the only hill station in Rajasthan (altitude 1200 m). Mount Abu is a quiet place perfect for those who like sleepy holiday destinations.The town comes to life under the onslaught of Gujarati honeymooners, weekend crowds and pilgrims who come here to boat in the picturesque Nakki Lake, walk hand in hand, shop at the innumerable little stalls and drive up to see variations of the same theme from several popular viewpoints (including the inevitable 'Honeymoon Point'!) where you get enchanting views of the landscape surrounding Mount Abu.
