  • When you reach the top, you find that it's not a big place. Small hill top with a worship place. But I suggest to you find a place to sit. And enjoy the wind. The view. Ditch your phone. Its a beautiful place. Not like the Himalayan mountains. A completely different scenery. There's an observatory nearby, if you're into that kinda stuff.

  • One of the best place in Mount Abu. Especially for bike rider it has so many curves.. Winter season is the perfect time to go over there... fresh air with chilling experience.☺️
