Guru Shikhar, Mount Abu

(550+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
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. Plan to see Guru Shikhar and other attractions that appeal to you using our Mount Abu vacation trip planner.
