It is both, the myth that surround the Nakki Lake and its natural beauty, that make it a great sightseeing and tourist hub in Mount Abu. The name of the lake ‘Nakki’ comes from the Hindi word ‘nakh’ which when translated into English means ‘nails.’ The myth goes that the Gods had dug the earth using their nails and a stream of water burst forth here. Nakki Lake is surrounded by hills on all sides and attracts those who wish to be enveloped in nature’s lap. The atmosphere here is like that of a carnival with a number of stalls selling balloons, ice cream, juices and souvenirs around the lake. As a matter of fact, this place is great for a day out with the family.

Morning, we again took our rented two wheeler and headed towards Dilware Jain Mandir, The marble carvings inside the temple were beautiful that one cannot describe, We had pure Jain food in our lunch from Dilware Jain mandir Bhojanalaya.This was the best part of our visit, One thing to note down that photography is not allowed inside the temple. From there, we move towards Trevors tank which is surrounded by dense forest and famous for Fish and Crocodiles, we spent some time there and came back. This place was located at quite outer part of Mount Abu, while returning we went to Adhar Devi Temple, It was also very close to our hotel.In evening we move towards honeymoon point located at another end of Mount Abu, The place is full of tourist and lots of monkeys. After spending their 1 hour we left and now this was my turn to drive vehicle, Again we came back to Main market had some snacks, did some small shopping of local stuff, small gifts for friends and returned back to hotel, Day 2 was quite hectic so we just had our dinner and slept off as next day morning we have to catch train to return back to home. We woke up next day, Hotel staff makes our breakfast ready early morning, we had breakfast, took the taxi and reached Abu Road to catch our train. The whole journey was beautiful and we had awesome memories of this place and two - three days are enough to explore complete Mount Abu.This post was originally published on Expressions Of My Thoughts.

About Mt Abu

Mount Abu is the only hill station in the deserts of Rajasthan. Among forts and palaces, this quiet hill station is quite popular with local tourists as well as visitors from across the country. A place of great religious reverence to the Jain community, the Dilwara Jain Temple is a set of five temples, all belonging to a different century. The temples are carved out of white marble and depict scenes of Gods and Goddesses and are a must visit for their architectural brilliance. You can also spend a day at Nakki Lake. Lying in the hills, this lovely lake offers boating opportunities to visitors. The Mount Abu Wildlife Sanctuary is another wonderful way to spend your time on this hill station and can take up your entire day, so do keep yourself free. For trekkers and adventure enthusiasts, the Guru Shikhar is the highest peak in the region and trekking here is a memorable and adventurous experience, though if you aren't an experienced trekker, you may need a little help! There are numerous hotels and guesthouses here, though depending on the type of traveller you are, it might be a good idea to do a little bit of research before settling on a place to stay.
