Abu at Glance

Mount Abu – Hills of God

A pleasant retreat set amidst the lush forested hills, Mt. Abu is a green oasis in the barren desert scape that’s Rajasthan. Situated at the southern tip of the Aravali range, the hill retreat owes its cool climate to its rich flora covering the entire hillside that includes coniferous trees and flowering shrubs. The road leading to Mt. Abu is a curved one characterized by arid region dotted with huge rocks in weird shapes and high velocity winds. The only hill station in Rajasthan, Mount Abu is more than just a summer retreat. Its stunning array of exquisite Dilwara Jain temples, dating back 11th-13th centuries, make it a popular pilgrimage centre.
