Aravalli Range



The Aravalli Range is one of the most popular mountain ranges in the western part of India. Stretching about 300 miles from the northeast to the southwest, the Aravallis intercept the state of Rajasthan on its stretch. The highest point in the Aravalli Range is called as Guru Shikhar, which is located in Mount Abu. At this point, the peak rises to about 5653 feet.

The northern end of the Aravalli Range is a stretch of isolated and rocky hills and ridges that starts in Haryana and ends in Delhi. The southwestern range of the Aravalli passes through Gujarat and Rajasthan. Ajmer in Rajasthan is located on the southern slopes of the Aravallis. Situated near a narrow gorge, the city of Bundi in Rajasthan is surrounded by the Aravalli Range on its three sides.

The Aravallis are some of the oldest fold mountains in the world. Beginning from the Rajasthan in western India, the mountain range extends to Delhi. The peaks of the Aravalli range are not pointed as young fold mountains. They have been eroded by the forces of nature like rain, wind and sunshine.
