YHAI’s Weekend Adventure – Mount Abu!
Is it possible to experience the essence of Mount Abu in a mere weekend? The answer is surely no. But, then we at YHAI have curated a special package for your weekend adventure, which will take you around this popular hill station of Rajasthan.
This experience of 2Nights & 3Days packs in lot of punch with a small trek, crocodile park visit and relaxing time for sight-seeing. On reaching here, depending on the group size, you will be put either in tented accommodation on the camping ground or in the hotel. We also have the option of family tent.
The first day is kept relatively open with only a small trek to Shanti Shikhar, after a delicious, hot lunch. This place gives amazing views of Mt. Abu. It is a small trail-trek in the forested areas of around two-three hours after lunch. Having got the first taste of adventure, we return to the base accommodation for the night.
To make up for the open first day, we have thrown together a bunch of places for the second day. These places are the famous sights of Mt. Abu. Your trip to Mt. Abu will not be complete without a visit to these places. We head to Guru Shikhar, the highest point of the Aravalli range. Almost 15 kms from Mt. Abu, we stop for a full view of the place. Achalgarh Mahadev Temple is worth a visit for its architecture and the peace of visiting this temple. It is a Shiva temple situated just outside the Achalgarh Fort.
Mt. Abu is famous for the Dilwara Jain temples, which are a group of five marble Jain temples with beautiful architecture and rich history. We have included these temples in the itinerary for you to savour the rich history. The temple interiors, ceiling, doorways, pillars have intricate design with ornamental detailing, which clearly showcase the workmanship of the artisans of those times. The delicate marble carvings will take your breath away. They are situated in the middle of a range of forested hills.
Nakki lake with its refreshing ambience is a major tourist attraction. From the back side of Nakki lake, you can witness the Sunset point, which is a serene place to catch the scenic view of sunset. The Adher Devi temple is a cliff-top temple made out of a large rock. There is a shrine inside a cave. It is accessed by 365 steep stairs. Also known as Arbuda Devi temple, Navratri is celebrated here with all fervour. The Brahma Kumari ashram at Mt. Abu is the headquarters of this spiritual movement. Well-maintained, airy and clean, it gives one peace of mind and relaxation.
After this sight-seeing, we return to our accommodation. The next day is planned for a visit to the Crocodile Park and Wildlife Sanctuary. This is a nice spot to enjoy nature and a perfect end of our weekend adventure.
As usual, we are taking into consideration all the safety and precautionary measures for the health of our travellers. Our staff and guides are well trained and aware of Covid-related SOPs.
