ROCK The mascot of Mount Abu, that is how lovingly the Toad
Rock could be pithily portrayed! Perched over a hill, directly
overlooking the love lake Nakki, it is one of the most frequented
point in the itinerary of all visitors, more so of those from
overseas. Apart from being an exciting climb for the mountaineers,
it is an appetizing site for those who seek to picnic with
a difference. It not only filially keeps an eye on the Love
Lake Nakki, but majestically surveys the whole town too.
It is an excellent example of Igneous rocks
with breathtaking shapes in the cradle of these oldest mountain
ranges in the world, (more than six billion years old). Together
with this wondrous sculpture, chiseled by the three great
sculptors, the Sun, the Rain and the Wind, there are many
in Mount Abu.
To begin with there is the Camel Rock as
one begins to climb the steep slope to Mount Abu from telati
on right hand side nearly 100 meters ahead. Once at Mount
Abu, there is no dearth of defined and undefined rocks, the
later of which are best left to the flight of fantasy of the
viewer. Of the more known ones, there are the Eagle Rock,
the Nun Rock, the Whale Rock, the Cobra Rack, the Sentinel
Rock, the Owl Rock, the Incredible Hulk Rock, the Monkey Rock,
and the Bear Rock, Balancing Rock etc.
