  • One of the best and worth visiting place in Mt Abu. It is the highest peak in this mountain range. It is nice and wonderful. There is always cold wind flowing and coolness. I had visited this place 4 times but each time it gave a different feel and pleasure. It is a combination of temples and picnic spot and so there is always a lot of rush. I love it.

  • Nice place to visit. You need to go by stairs at top point. Roads are narrow. But You will enjoy drive. Try to visit this place during morning time.

  • This place is thrilling. Specially during monsoon. At the top of the Mountain you can feel the height and the cool breeze will make your time extravagant. The flying clouds and the lush green hill tops are amazing. Visiting during morning hours to enjoy the time.

  • Nice heavily crowded place. You can click some good photographs here. Beware of the sellers here. Avoid buying anything from here (maybe except paintings sold here, those are good). The sellers especially those selling handloom and related items fool people. Bring water bottle from below hill.
