The hills, mountains and sloping terrain- these are not the typical characteristics of Rajasthan, which is known for its vast deserts of sand and flat terrain. But that is the essence of Royal Rajasthan! Even rarity proves to be an epitome. The only hill station of Rajasthan, Mount Abu, reaches out high up to the sky with its highest mountain peak- the Guru Shikhar. Presenting a panoramic view of the Aravalli Ranges, the Guru Shikhar, a mountain peak in the Arbuda Mountains of Rajasthan, is the highest point of the Aravalli Ranges with an altitude of 1722 metres.
The peak houses a cave at its highest point, where there is temple dedicated to an incrnatio of Lord Vishnu. The peak is almost 15 kms from Mount Abu and is a favorite destination for almost all the tourists who visit Mount Abu.
