Mount Abu is one of those towns whose identity is linked to their lakes. Think Srinagar and Geneva. Legend says the Nakki Lake was dug out by the Gods using their nails, or Nakh, and hence its name and religious significance. It is another matter that the lake is used more for boating than a holy dip; the attached food kiosks and lawns ensure you have a good picnic here. The clean and pristine lake make boating a pleasure here. If you come early morning you can even spot many species of birds. The whole town seems to be settled around the lake giving it a very peaceful look.
Viewing the sunset seems a must-do on every tourist’s list. With good reason. Sitting atop the Sunset Point, located two kilometers south west from the town centre, with the valley below and sky above, it is the right setting to see the yellows and reds in their myriad hues especially when there is no cloud cover. No vehicles are allowed on the last kilometer leading to Sunset Point but you can always rent a horse or a Baba Gadi. The latter is a small, low rise cart on wheels pushed by one or two persons
depending on the ‘payload.’ Be prepared to be pestered by vendors trying to sell peanuts, popcorn and soft drinks.
Forests and Green Cover
If you are seeking a date with a hyena, leopard, bear or a chinkara, head out to Mount Abu’s wildlife sanctuary. Even if you don’t spot any of these animals, you are sure to see one of the hundreds of langurs or over 250 species of birds. Mount Abu is surrounded by forests, and these seem to be on a recovery path after stringent laws put a check on rampant deforestation.
It is a pity photography is not allowed in these Jain temples, but the memories of the fine sculpture seen here can never go away. Each square foot of the temple seems to have been a labour of skill and love; the guide tells you these temples are so called because the heart, or dil, has gone into the making of these.
The highest point in Rajasthan at 5,653 feet, Guru Shikhar is located 15 kilometers from Mount Abu. With a temple and ancient cave for Lord Dattatreya, believed to be the sixth incarnation of Lord Vishnu, this location is never short of devotees. Or picnickers. Offering 360 degrees picturesque views, you can also shop for tourist souvenirs here while munching on cheese or butter flavoured special ‘American Sweetcorn’ as advertised by vendors.
