Some of The Great Ways to Spend Time When Visiting Mount Abu

Camping is an activity that can be enjoyed both while solo travelling and while traveling with friends or family. Enjoying the majestic beauty of the night sky and looking up to the starlit sky is indeed a lovely experience. This feeling is heightened in the summer months and is not quite as same in any other season because the starts will be blocked by rainy clouds in the monsoon and the night time is too cold in the winter months.

Rock Climbing

The thrill that is offered while rock climbing is not easily substituted by any other activity. In the beginning and learning stages, experts and guides will help you get better at it and gradually as you learn, you begin to enjoy the experience even more. During the winter months, even with shoes with strong grips, the moisture in the atmosphere does not allow for a good rock climbing experience. 


Exploring routes that go through the Aravalli Range is not only a challenging but also fun experience. The paths can get difficult at times but overall tracks are easy and can be covered in a day. A lot of trekking paths start in Mt Abu Wildlife Sanctuary thus you can expect to encounter several breathtaking animals and fine specimens of flora. Consider Rajasthan holiday packages to experience the wildlife in Mount Abu while trekking.

Widely regarded by many as one of the topmost Jain pilgrimage sites in the world, the Dilwara Temples were built several centuries ago between the 11th and 13th centuries AD. The detail in the marble carvings has withstood the test of time. The construction of the temple was done with integral Jain values such as simplicity and honesty at the back of the minds of the builders.

A Complete Guide for Choosing A Tour Company

People can go on group tours for various reasons - fun, a special occasion or just work. However, not choosing the right tour company can turn any trip sour and make the entire experience of travel troublesome. If you are planning tours and travels in Mumbai, it is essential to book an established service that has experience in the region. 

Here are a few points to remember while selecting a tour company for your next trip:
  • Budget: While some services may offer you value for money, there are plenty that will just overcharge you. Having a strict budget before you start searching definitely helps narrow down on possible choices. Try to look out for really inexpensive offers as they might often contain hidden costs that the company is not being upfront about. Also, make sure that you know about any additional fees or charges that have to be paid later. You should also mention the group size you are travelling with beforehand and ensure they have experience in dealing with large groups.
  • Past clients: You should do some research regarding the past clients before booking any tour company. Some agencies only cater to families, some are popular with old people while some are better suited for young couples. Make sure you book a service that is appropriate for you and everyone you are travelling with. Most such companies usually have their guest demographics on their website where you can see pictures from previous tours they have organized.
  • Local knowledge: Tour agencies should have local guides who are well-trained and well-informed about the places they visit. Someone who knows the local language, customs and traditions are not only helpful but also important in some places. Guidebooks may be helpful but local guides will know excellent places to explore or to eat at which are not on the map.
  • Activities: Most people book tour agencies so that they can have an organized and balanced schedule so that they can spend time fruitfully by exploring and trying new things. Ask the agency if they organize any group activities or do they leave everyone to their own plans. You don’t want to be sitting around when in a new country and visiting tourist spots as well as tasting the local cuisine should not be missed out on.
  • Safety and reputation: Before making a final decision on a service it is crucial to check the safety record of the company. Make sure it is recognized and accredited by local government bodies and appropriate trade organizations. You can also check their reputation and ratings online by reading reviews. Some agencies may advertise very attractively but reviews by customers will help you get to the bottom of what their service is actually like.

The international travel sector is a rapidly expanding industry and more people are travelling the world today than ever before. Booking the right tour company takes away a lot of mental anxiety and ensures everything goes to plan while you are in a new country.
