Mount Abu

Mount Abu

A lush, cool hill station in the burning desert of Rajasthan, Mount Abu is a wonder in itself. Nestled cozily in the lap of the Aravallis, and located at the border of Rajasthan & Gujarat, Mount Abu is a great vacation spot to get away from the tropical heat. The place finds mention in ancient Hindu texts as Arbudaanchal and is deeply seeped in myths & mystique. However, it developed as a hill station during the colonial era and still has its sprinkling of a few British-era bungalows & royal lodges. Welcome to this gorgeous town of verdant slopes, shimmering lake, exotic temples, and a host of legends & lore.

- Memorable Experience !

Caper Travel designed a three week tour to Rajasthan and Goa for four of us in a private car during March. The driver, guides and everyone associated with the organisation were professional, reliable and punctual! We had an amazing time, made even better because of the good accomodation choices and extra additions, such as elephant and camel ride.
Thank you so much Caper for giving us a truly memorable experience of your beautiful country!
