Itinerary

  • You will be picked up from your hotel in Udaipur and leave for Mount Abu in an air-conditioned vehicle. As your vehicle winds its way up the hills, appreciate the natural beauty of Rajasthan’s only summer retreat. You will cover a distance of 185 kilometres before you reach Mount Abu. Accompanied by a local English-speaking guide, you will visit: • Dilwara Temples: This temple complex built in the Solanki style of architecture dates back to the 11th and 13th centuries AD. Carved out of white marble, these temples are dedicated to Jain Tirthankaras (enlightened souls). The oldest temple, the Vimal Vasahi temple, was built in 1031 AD and is dedicated to the first of the Jain Tirthankaras. The temples are very famous for the intricate carvings, especially on the pillars. But the most striking feature of this Jain temple is the marble pendant in the dome of the porch. It hangs from the ceiling like an enchanting cluster of half-open lotuses with cups so finely carved that they appear to be transparent. There will be a lunch break (payable direct). • Nakki Lake: Legend has it that this lake was carved out by the Gods. Set picturesquely amidst hills, it is the only artificial lake in India that is 1200 metres above sea level. Don’t miss ‘Toad Rock’ which gets its name from of its shape: it looks like a gigantic toad about to leap into the water. After enjoying the popular attractions of Mount Abu, you will be dropped back to your hotel in Udaipur where the tour ends.
