Though ancient ( 14th century ), it is in a dilapidated condition. You need to leave your vehicle and walk few minutes thru the maze of various mall shops to the entrance of the Fort. Then it is a steady climb to the top of the fort. There are 2 gates to the fort. On top one can find old... More

If you are looking forward to visit Achalgarh Fort, I would like to tell you that it has been vanished. You have to climb several strairs if you want to go there. But the view from there is really good. You may go there if you are looking for solitary silence.

Achalgarh is the fourth in my favorite five in Mount Abu. It can be enjoyed in right way only if we visit in the early morning and in the evening too. The scenario here in the early morning is exceptional.

As a few other reviewers have already pointed out, there isn't much of a fort at Achalgarh. So let me clarify upfront that we (wife and me) went there only to see the Jain temples there, and our interest was entirely for religious purposes. This review is based on that aspect only. Achalgarh is a 15-20 minute drive (about 8... More

Since as a couple we were on our anniversary vacation, we had made it a point that we will skip temples. Achalgarh is a fort in ruins now. There is a temple at top. There is nothing great around. Can skip if short on time.
