The hilly plateau on which Mount Abu is located makes for interesting walks. The plateau is dotted with temples, forts, small lakes and paths that lead through dense patches of forest. Some of the more popular walks are to Nakki lake, where you can stroll around the perimeter of the lake and admire the strange rock formations; and to the beautiful Jain temples at Dilwara, about an hour away. If you’re up to venturing further visit Achalgarh, which is 11km north of town.
There are a few temples and a small village atop this hill, which offers spectacular views of the countryside. The Mount Abu Wildlife Sanctuary is a 3km walk from Dilwara and is home to bears, fox, wild boar and a number of species of birds.
