The only hill station in Rajasthan, Mount Abu is both a popular hill resort as well as a place of pilgrimage since the famous Dilwara Jain temples are located here. It is a pleasant green oasis of lush forested hills set in the barren desert scape of Rajasthan.
Mount Abu is situated at the southern tip of the Aravali range, the hill retreat owes its cool climate to its rich flora covering the entire hillside that includes coniferous trees and flowering shrubs. During the period of the Maharajas, it was used as a place of leisure by the royalties. The place presents an interesting contrast of British style bungalows and holiday lodges with various tribal communities residing amidst the thick lush forest on the hills surrounding the region.
The tribal community of this area still maintains its pristine ways of living despite progress of the modern times.
