Guru Shikhar, Mount Abu

4.4
Take in views of the Aravalli Range from atop Rajasthan’s highest peak at Guru Shikhar. Just 15 km (9 mi) from Mount Abu and reachable by car, the peak rises to an elevation of 1,722 mt (5,676 ft). From the top, enjoy panoramic vistas of the surrounding landscapes as you cool down in the breeze. Climb the stairs to discover the Hindu cave temples of Dattatreya, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu, and another temple dedicated to his mother, Anasuya. Look out for the large bell, suspended by a wooden frame, dating back to 1411. Put Guru Shikhar on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Mount Abu online journey planner .

  • Very high hill with a temple Guru Shikhar is located at Peak point of hill. It is at a very high place. You can see whole Abu from this place. There is a temple at the top of the hill. You have to walk lot for this. It is not visitable for older person. But it is the best place.
  • The beauty of Gurushikhar is at night..please don't forget to take binoculars..went there at 22:00 and it seemed like you could see the entire constellation with your bare eyes..truly beautiful experience
  • It's good place and highest peak in MA.If you are going via 2 wheeler then make sure you are taking necessary winter wear!It's very beautiful place!!!!

  • Great nature views around from the top. Must visit place if you are in mount abu.. around 15km away from mount city area.. can take your own vehicle or take bike ...but don't take risk of driving if you are not a good driver.. route is little hard..
