Rajasthan Tourism offers amazing MountAbu Tour
Come summers and I start planning a trip to hill station to escape the heat for some time. I was going through ‘Srishti’, a nature based magazine and came across an article on Mount Abu, a hill station in Rajasthan. After reading the article featuring amazing pictures of this hill station I decided to explore Mount Abu this time. I immediately called up my friend Monika and Pallavi and soon we finalized Mount Abu as our destination for this summer.
Mount Abu is the only hill station of Rajasthan which attracts many a tourist from far and wide. Located at an elevation of 1,220 m above sea level, this hill station is famous for its scenic beauty, pleasant climate and several other amazing attractions. We reached Mount Abu at 6 in the morning and were booked at the heritage hotel, Kesar Bhawan Palace. It is a wonderful place to stay at as it is located on a hillock offering breathtaking views of the surroundings. Also the famous Lake of Mount Abu and bazaars are located at a walking distance from the hotel.
After refreshment we began our Mount Abu tour with our guide Ravinder Singh. Chatting with him we headed towards the Nakki Lake by car. It is the most enchanting attraction of this hill station. Ravinder told us that the legend goes that this lake was dug by the Gods with their nails. Highly picturesque, this lake is hemmed in by majestic Aravalli mountains which adds more beauty to it. Beautiful gardens and rock formations are the other attractions near the lake. The climate was very pleasant here which was a great relief from the sultry heat of Delhi. We sat here for some time and captured the natural beauty in our camera. The Toad rock near the lake was an interesting feature of this place. Lying overhanging the lake, this rock is in the form of a toad. Ravinder told that it would be great if we come here in the evening also to enjoy breathtaking sunset views.
From here we went back to our hotel for lunch. After relishing delicious lunch we set out for Dilwara Jain Temple, which are well known throughout the world for their stunning architectural beauty. As we reached there I was completely bowled over by their architectural beauty. The exquisitely carved walls, ceilings and pillars of the temples are simply awe-inspiring. Dilwara Jain Temples is a World Heritage Site where people come from across the globe. These temples were built during the 11th to 13th century AD. They are majestically carved out of white marble.
After exploring the Dilwara Jain Temples we headed towards Gurushikhar, which is the highest point in the Aravalli mountain range. Here we greeted our senses with picture-perfect views of the surroundings and breathtaking sunset views. This marked the end of our memorable and pleasurable Mount Abu Tour.http://blog.capertravelindia.com/rajasthan-tourism-offers-amazing-mountabu-tour.htmlHills StationsDilwara Jain Temples,Gurushikhar,hill station,Hill Station Tour,hill stations in India,Mount Abu,Mount Abu Tour,Nakki Lake,Toad rock,World Heritage
