This time when we visited Achalgarh Fort, we had a heavy breakfast. Yet we started climbing the fort which was quite a sloppy trek. Sadly we couldn't reach the top, we enjoyed the climb and specially the 'Shayris' of Kishore Guide

We found this place by chance and perhaps that's the main reason it felt so special. Most tourists go for the nearby temple as the fort is really just a ruin - but what a magical one! Nobody is there except for an occasional kid with his goat herd. Great view with zero effort climb. Two ladies on a scooter,... More

The fort is in a dilapidated condition now. There are some features of historical and religious importance in and around the fort. Achaleshwar Mahadeva temple is just outside the fort; the toe of Lord Shiva is worshipped there and a brass Nandi is also located there. Near the temple there are three stone buffaloes standing around a pond. Ask kids... More

We went to visit the Achalgarh fort but kept searching for one. There is only a temple...no fort. Please avoid if you do not have too much time.

This is not actually a fort. There were 1-2 old walls around probably thats why its called a fort but the walls looked very ordinary and didnt look like a fort at all. There is an ancient Achleshwar mahadev temple after the car parking dedicated to Lord Shiva which is good place to visit. The temple has an interesting mythological... More

Get yourself a good guide, one who knows "spirituality" if you really wish to know how fortunate you are to be there. Walk to the top of the hill past the Jain temples, to the Kali Temples on top. If you are initiated, the rest will reveal itself to you. Ye on the Path, do not miss this climb !!!

It was the only disappointment on mount abu, since it is not maintained much there is no history to be heard. Not a good place for people, who look forward to have some historical findings.

We had a very interesting trek over the mountains with great view of the lake and temples around but it is not much of a fort. We kept on looking for the fort but really did not find it. It is still worth it as a trek because it provide quite a view.

You may visit the temple in the area, but this isn't really a fort. If you have time you you may choose to visit. as it's not too far from the road to Guru Shikhar. Mount Abu as a whole is very picturesque to drive around.
