We took a road trip to Mount Abu from Mumbai, breaking our journey at Gandhinagar for the night. Mount Abu was bitterly cold....just 2C, but we were well equipped so actually enjoyed the northern winter. The place has become very commercial now, with loads of hotels having sprung up around the vicinity of the Nakki lake, but there is accommodation to suit every pocket and loads of nice eateries.
Apart from the Dilwara temples which is an absolute Must See, do visit the Sunset Point to feast on the gorgeous view of the valley below.
Opposite the Nakki Lake is a small garden where the main attraction is a helium balloon ride for about 10 minutes. A complete rip off, but would still recommend it especially at sunset to watch Mt Abu light up and the reflections in the Nakki Lake.
