  9. I did not know that Mount Abu was one of the top places to visit in India. And with so much to see and do. A hike up the Tod Rock would be an ideal spot to get great panoramic view. And good to know that the hike to the top of Mount Abu is an easy level too. A good tip to visit before March when the temperatures are a bit better.
