I hope you love crocodiles because the Trevor’s Tank amasses the beauty of a man-made wonder at the heart of Mount Abu. Designed under the skilful hands of Col. G.H. Trevor, the place is a small yet beautiful wildlife sanctuary perched in the lush green valleys of Mount Abu.

Traveller Tips

  • I am sorry but you cannot feed the crocs! It is all part of conservation and you can’t interfere with their complex dietary needs.
  • Make sure you carry no plastics and other materials that can turn out to be hazardous to the delicate eco system.
  • It goes without saying that you should carry plenty of water and wear comfortable shoes.

Things to Do

  • Go for a road trip along the winding twists and turns of the Abu Road and enjoy the scenic abundance of Rajasthan.
  • Enjoy some bird watching from the prestigious Salim Ali Point and you would be surprised by the large species of birds that visit the place every year.
  • Head over to the nearby Utroj and Sher Gaon villages. These rustic hamlets are a welcoming change from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Availability of Guides

I don’t think you need a guide here, but if you insist you can avail a local guide from the Morthala Railway station which is only a few kilometres away from the place. Usually a local guide accompanies you from the entry point. But I would suggest that you explore the place on your own terms.

Best Time to Visit

Being a hill station, the place has cool and pleasant climate all around the year, but I wouldn’t prefer the rainy season because it can hinder with your explorations’ around Mount Abu.

How to Reach

The nearest railway station is Morthala which is 14 km away from Mount Abu. From here, you travel straight along the Abu road, either by cab or local buses. I would suggest a cab because the timings of local buses might not favour your travel plan well.
