If you are in Mount Abu do not miss this place. It's beautiful, a temple tour guide (free) takes you around and explains everything and tells stories connected to the temples. The carvings on walls are amazingly symmetrical and detailed given that it was all done manually.

Guru Shikhar

Reviewed By Prajyot K

Highest peak in Mount Abu they say. And yes it is the highest peak. Spectacular view from all the sides once you reach at the top. There are two temples of the peak. The top one is hanuman temple. An ancient religious place. There are lots of local shops on the way to top offering different Rajasthani items.
If you place to hire a guide at this place then please check whom you hire cause some of them hardly have any knowledge.
I believe this place is must visit. It was an amazing experience.

Sunset Point Mount Abu

Reviewed By VacationsWithLove

We Travelled in Month of Feb
Pros:
- Sunset is very clearly visible and beautiful.
- Safe and secure for couples.
- You will find good food stalls and market around the path to sunset point.
Cons:
- Have to buy tickets from government counter (useless). (Try Honeymoon Sunset Point a Better alternative)
- Have to travel 1 km to point after parking.
- For old age people its difficult to walk they can skip this place and visit other option of Honeymoon Sunset Point in Mount-Abu.
- after sunset full crowd runs back to town and this makes a very big traffic jam.
To do: Try taking 2-wheelers to escape the traffic jams.

Nakki Lake

Reviewed By Mahesh D

This famous spot in Mount Abu is one of the most happening places in the Hill city. The lake has lot of different boating options to have a lake ride. Obviously it has become commercial spot for local city members. Nakki lake has 3-4 km area of water, also the boating dockyard has ample space for public sittings, Gardens & other activities. We also enjoyed the Rajasthani dressing photoshoot at the same place, plus it has no.of shopping outlets & food outlets. It has all things at one place. Must visit place in MAbu.

Brahma Kumari World Spiritual University

Reviewed By ChiragWelekar

In the north of India, the Aravali Mountains rise from the parched desert plains of Rajasthan. Chief among them is Mount Abu. In ancient texts and folklore, Abu is praised as a holy place, and is associated with the names of sages and seers. Even today, numerous temples and hermitages are to be found in the area. Many former Rajput kings built their palaces and summer homes — several of them have stood the test of time — in the surrounding hills.
Nestled in the cool heights of the Mountains is the hill station of Mount Abu, where the international headquarters of the Brahma Kumaris, called ‘Madhuban’ (meaning forest of honey) is located.
A living social laboratory and a largely self-sufficient community, it is the place to which a large international family of practicing yogis comes every year. When one steps inside the holy precincts of Madhuban, one can feel a spiritual energy that gives an experience of peace and inner joy not to be found anywhere else.
In Madhuban, the principal attractions are Baba’s Hut, Baba’s Room and the Tower of Peace. Baba’s Hut is the place where the founder, Prajapita Brahma, did intense meditation, spreading subtle rays of peace to all souls of the world. The Tower of Peace is the place where the mortal remains of the founder father were laid to rest.
The Universal Peace Hall, also known as Om Shanti Bhawan, is the main auditorium in Madhuban. An attractive, free-spanning structure, the Hall seats 3,000 people, and has facilities for simultaneous translation in 16 languages. Opened in 1983, the Hall has been the venue of major international conferences and is visited by more than 8,000 tourists daily.
Madhuban hosts a minimum of 35,000 residential guests annually and is home to about 500 permanent residents who work in the 42 departments that cater to the physical and spiritual needs of visitors from around the world. The departments look after accommodation, laundry, transport, Gardens, the audio-visual systems, power supply, sanitation etc. The kitchen can prepare meals for up to 4,000 people at a time; additional kitchens produce toli (much-favoured sweets and savouries) and tea.

Mount Abu Wildlife Sanctuary

Reviewed By AnkitJ_rpr - Raipur

The mount abu wildlife sanctuary is nice one. So many types of animals around, specially monkeys. Seeing the animals in a cage, is like a pain, but seeing them in a wildlife sanctuary, is really a treat. Animals playing around, making their natural noises, looks just awesome.
If someone really loves to see the animals, wildlife sanctuary visit is must for him. It's a lovely experience.

Gaumukh Temple

Reviewed By gmahesh7 - Ghaziabad, India

The best spot of Mount Abu, that is, if you love to climb up and down about 700 steps. The steep climbs through the woods leaves one panting. Nothing much at Gaumukh except for the temple and the cool water source that apparently is perpetual stream. Head for this trek, only if you really like to walk.
