#4 of 7 in Wildlife in Mount Abu
Mount Abu Wildlife Sanctuary is located in one of the oldest mountain ranges of India, the Aravalli range. It was declared a wildlife sanctuary in 1980.GeographyIt spreads out into a plateau which is about 19 km in length and 6 km in breadth. In altitude, it varies from 300 meters at the foot to 1722 meters at Guru Shikhar, the highest peak in Rajasthan.The rocks are igneous and due to the weathering effect of wind and water, large cavities are common in them. The park's ecoregion is that of Kathiawar-Gir dry deciduous forests.FloraIt is very rich in floral bio-diversity starting from xenomorphic sub-tropical thorn forests in the foot hills to sub-tropical evergreen forests along PRIYEN water courses and valleys at higher altitudes. There are about 112 plant families with 449 genera and 820 species. Of these, 663 species are dicots while 157 species are monocots. About 81 species of trees, 89 species of shrubs, 28 species of climbers and 17 species of tuberous plants of medicinal importance have been identified in this sanctuary.Mount Abu is the only place in Rajasthan where one can observe a variety of orchids. The place is also rich in bryophytes and algae. Three species of wild roses and 16 species of feras some of which are quite rare have also been reported from here. The south-west part of the sanctuary is rich in bamboo forests.

  • mount abu wildlife sanctuary contsins variety of flora and fauna as wild bear, anteaters, langors , wild cat etc.  more »
  • good location surrounded by nature and mountain terrain and you can find bear, and other wildlife here  more »
  • Pretty and well-maintained but tends to attract tourists with kids. There doesn't seem to be much danger as people were happy clicking away pictures of monkeys.  more »

  • If you can get away from the beaten track it is an absolutely stunning place; secret waterfalls (after the rainy season), grand vistas, and so much flora and fauna to discover. The walks are ? undocumented and hard to follow sometimes, so be sure to go with someone who knows the area well. There are also wild animals out here - big cats and bears. Don't go into the wild after dusk for sure, and even during the day one can find oneself walking g with a stick in one's hand, just in case...
  • This is one of the best place of rajasthan.... The sunset point of mount abu is heart touching...... At the top of mount abu feel like whole world is under us & we are top of the world..... Jain temples are so old.... Creation of temples is heart touching & uniquely... Awsome place guys...Excellent weather, wonderful ecosystem, great diversity of species. Getting tremendous human disturbance and pressure makes this place now a days more cumbersome than before.
  • Good place have some animal good place for kids tracking but government doesn't maintain it no maintains on small district like sirohi comes under jodhpur block whole development happens in jodhpur and other district remains as it abu is beauty for rajasthan so government should maintain it natural beauty known for its cool environment so grow more tree and maintain animals so visitors come and watch the place this would be beneficial for government only but they didn't care they just love money not the nature or other public
  • There are only few points in mount abu, and it's one of them so dont miss it.
  • This is like a forest.we will find few animals if we go deeper into the forest.
