“Fantastic Place called Mount abu”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Its a best place to visit for any traveler , Gurushikhar, Gomukh, Dilwara temple is just cannot miss. Sun Set and Sun Rise is amazing.

Prajapita Brahma Kumari University having a coloumless hall which can accomodate 3500 students in 1 go is just amazing

stay @ Hotel Karnavati where u can enjoy Sun Rise from Villa Room, best location 1KM away from Market

“Mt. Abu trip”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

We visited Mt Abu just to see the Dilwara temples. We reached Mt Abu from Udaipur in a cab around 6pm in the evening. Plan was to stay in Mt Abu that night and our train to Delhi was at 8.40pm the next day from Abu Road railway station. Just a word of caution to travellers, our cab driver warned that a 50km stretch till Pindwara on the highway to Mt Abu from Udaipur is very prone to dacoits after sundown. And indeed that stretch is through rocky wilderness and not a single establishment in sight. Not sure how true this is, but may be best to avoid an evening journey back.
The Dilwara temples is a must see and the carvings are out of this world. Apart from the Gurushikhar and Dilwara there isn't much to see although we didnot go to Gurushikhar. The hill station is little sleepy town, atleast in Jan which is supposed to be a offseason. Not much scope of shopping so make sure that you pick up your souvenirs from Udaipur.
Bikes are available on hire, near the Lake.
Do visit the cafe Shikibo, its a nice hangout place.

“Filthy!”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Garbage, dirt, smashed alcohol bottles set the tone. Folks have no sense of ownership and pride in the sites of India!

“Little oasis in desert state.”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

This hill station is not as hip-hop as hill stations in Uttarakhand and Himachal. There are a lot of Gujarati travellers as Gujarat border is hardly 50 km from here and there is alcohol prohibition in Gujarat. So, there is a lot of liquor tourism here. All in all, I found it to be a place worth spending a couple of days.
