Mount Abu: To rejuvenate and To Find Peace

It’s weird how a sunset can calm a person. Bright diminishing light shattered on the horizon, glowing peaks of mountains. Even when there is chaos all around you, you can find a sense of peace.

But to experience this, you have to pack your bags and head to ‘Mount Abu’. An amazingly beautiful and peaceful hill station, Mount Abu is in the midst of the desert. Located in the Aravalli Range, at a height of 1,200 meters, Mount Abu lines the border of Rajasthan. It’s a perfect destination for a weekend getaway. It has everything from mountains to lakes and temples and more.

 You can get to Mount Abu by road or by train. The nearest railway station to reach your destination is Abu road railway station, about 25 km away from the city. However, a road trip is highly recommended.  The nearest city is Udaipur. So if you are planning to take a flight you can come to Udaipur airport and take a cab or a bus to Mount Abu. This road trip is a great experience as well. you will get to see spiralling roads covering the mountains, small patches of homes, hotels, cottages and a lit up city (if you are travelling at night). As Mount Abu is a very popular destination for hill lovers, you won’t have a problem finding suitable accommodations. If you are travelling on a low budget try finding a place in ‘Brahma Kumaris Ashram’. Brahma Kumaris are a well-known meditation spot as well. In the Ashram, you can participate in spiritual workshops.
