I heard about this place a lot and it was time to go and see the place. Can't get a better time than New year-2015.This place is known as 'an oasis in the desert' as its heights are home to rivers, lakes, waterfalls and evergreen forests.
This is a hill station in the Aravalli range in Pindwara. Mount Abu Assembly Constituency Of Sirohi district of Rajasthan state, in western India, near the border with Gujarat.
We took bus at the night from Delhi on 1st evening reached Udaipur at 8 am on 2 jan in the morning, from their you have to take local bus to reach Mount Abu or you can hire a taxi. We took the local bus and reached Mount Abu bus station.
We were mislead by an auto guy, according to him there is no bus till 3 pm in evening. We got worried but we just wanted to make sure, so we asked another person who was a driver and he lead us other bus stop where you get local bus to Mount Abu. It was 163 Km from Udaipur. We reached Mount Abu around 12.30 pm. It was a long journey by bus and road was not good from Udaipur to Mount Abu. It was a local bus so it was going through each village in between and stopping for passengers. The local people are amazing and open hearten.
We booked hotel online and it was a mistake as there were so many option and good ones in the 3000-5000 INR, online booking doesn't turn out good, it was old and not up-to the mark, after such a tiring journey. Now we cant do anything so we thought to roam around and went hotel for sleep. We took some rest and went to explore the place. We were hungry and had lunch in small restaurant. The food was delicious and price was reasonable.
Than we went to Nakki Lake. Its was big lake we took boat ride, it was an amazing experience. It was a mechanical boat and was awesome to ride. After that we went to see sunset point.
