A pleasant retreat set amidst lush, forested hills, Mt. Abu is a green oasis in the desert of Rajasthan. Located at 4000 ft above sea level, this hill station owes its cool climate to the rich flora covering the entire hillside. A 24 KM drive up from Abu Road, it is strewn with fruit trees, rare orchids and quaintly-shaped rocky boulders on hilltops, each bearing legend derived from its shape. Cool through the year, the rains give it an added charm. And there's quite a downpour - an average of 64-177 cm during the season. This place is also very popular retreat from the heat to the people of Rajasthan and the neighboring state of Gujarat over some centuries.
