Abu is the only hill station in the desert state. Getting to Mount
Abu is easier from Gujarat, since it is to the south of the state
in the Aravalli mountains. The closest city, though, is Udaipur.
The Dilwara Jain temples have often been compared to the Taj Mahal.
There are a few interesting places to grab a bite around the lake,
a lot like the Mahabaleshwar lake in Makarashtra, only a lot more
picturesque. Mount Abu is especially known for its picturesque sunsets,
which are seen best past the hills from the Lake.
along a 1200m high plateau in the south of Rajasthan, and situated
at the southern tip of the Aravali range, Mt Abu is more than just
a cool retreat in the dry desert of Rajasthan.
