Mount Abu and the Aravalli Range in Rajasthan
An oasis in the desert

Mount Abu, Rajasthan, India

Providing much-needed relief from the blazing heat of Rajasthan, Mount Abu, the state’s only hill station, stands at a height of 1,722 meters above sea level and is embraced by the lush green hills of the Aravalli Range. It is referred to as 'an oasis in the desert as its heights are home to rivers, lakes, waterfalls, and evergreen forests.

Studded with a colorful mix of rustic abodes of tribal communities and posh houses inclusive of British-style bungalows and royal holiday lodges, Mount Abu appears to be no less than a wonder in this desert state. Other than its scenic beauty, the place is home to several Hindu and Jain temples, including Arbuda Devi Temple, Shri Raghunath Temple, Dilwara Temple, and more. You can also visit the Achalgarh Fort, Nakki Lake, and Dhrudiya Waterfalls that are nearby.
