Mount Abu

The only hill station in Rajasthan on Aravali Hills situated very closer to the Gujarat and Rajasthan border; the Mount Abu is the perfect destination for the Rajasthanis as well as for other tourists to find a great escape during winters. The ancient name of Mount Abu is "Arbudaanchal" and unlike the deserted areas, this hill station brings the perfect soothing aroma of windy landscape and rocky (sometimes lush, during monsoons & winters) valleys. The southern tip of the Aravali Hills owes the cool climate to its rich flora covering the entire hillside; that includes coniferous trees and flowering shrubs.

The mountain of Mount Abu forms a distinct rocky plateau 22 km long by 9 km wide. The highest peak on the mountain is Guru Shikhar at 1,722 meters (5,650 ft) above sea level. It is referred to as 'an oasis in the desert', as its heights are home to rivers, lakes, waterfalls and evergreen forests.
