Guru Shikhar, Mount Abu Reviews

  • It was a good place once. But not it's overcrowded and there isn't much space for parking. It's the highest peak of Rajasthan and has a good panoramic view so one must go. Avoid driving your personal car uphill, take a taxi instead.

  • The view is beyond amazing. You will find small brooks in between..the whole area is so picturesque. You have a lot of spots to click pictures. The weather is freaking good, you wont feel sweaty. Guru shikhar just has a temple which u can visit. Nothing else.

  • Nice beautiful place for a cool visit especially for honeymoon purpose. The highest place in Rajasthan in height wise around 5000+ feet above from Sea level. Nice cludy weather can bring a charm

  • Great Place. Journey towards it is great. You'll enjoy on bike. Make sure you take bike there. Don't worry bikes are available on rents there.

  • Very good temple at the top of mountains and it has good view to see around other mountains surrounded.only risky thing it has to maintain the stair cases for old people's who can walk safely and it should have seating arrangement in between to do rest for a while till they reach to temple.
