The Best Time to Visit Mount Abu

Mount Abu has a name that immediately brings to your mind Arabian folktales and Aladdin’s magic lamp-his little pet was called Abu. Mount Abu is nothing less magical as a tourist destination- a picture perfect hill station that’s got lakes, temples, forts and palaces, places to watch the sunset from and wild little fauna species could rarely be any different. Also, it has a separate tourist spot marked out for honeymooners by name-that’s how popular it is. Mount Abu remains pleasant weather-wise all the year round, but borders on the hotter side during summer and is pleasantly cold in winter. Even then, February-June is considered the best time to pay it a visit, along with September-December.
