Expert Speak

Udaipur - Mt Abu Break is also a popular driving itinerary for ex-Ahmedabad guests. Guests looking for experiential stays may opt for a stay around Ranakpur (Narlai or Gaherao). Guests looking for wildlife experience may opt for Bera instead of Mount Abu. Mount Abu can get really cold in Winter (Mid-Dec to End Jan).
