Guru Shikhar, Mount Abu

4.5
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 .

  • One of the best place to visit in Abu. 5650ft 😜 Reaching there can be exhausting so keep a water bottle still on top of there will be shops. They will charge more than MRP but still work for you. Worth to reach there. Keep your cam handy.
  • Guru shikhar is the highest point of mount abu and the atmosphere up there is what it makes people to visit this place. There are temples in between the path and a giant Bell at the top. The path to the top is lengthy and that makes it difficult for elderly people to reach the top. Yet people do visit this place to enjoy the cool atmosphere and the amazing view from the top.
  • Best place. Awesome atmosphere. For Weekend time spent place wid family.
  • It's a good place to visit with friends or family. The place has some temples and offers spectacular scenery. Best to visit in morning or evening.
