At an elevation of 4000 feet, with the backdrop of Nakki Lake and Old Gateway to Mount Abu, Honeymoon point offers breathtaking views and is one of the tourist attractions in Mount Abu. Also known as Anadara Point, it is named ‘Honeymoon Point’ because of the existence of a rock here that resembles the shape of a man and a woman.

Winter season is the best time to visit Mount Abu. Although, due to its height the weather is not extremely hot during summers as well. September to March are ideal months to visit this hill station.
