Plummy from a distance

View from the top: Plummy, Rajasthan

Situated in the heart of Mt. Abu is Plummy which is one of the highest climbs at Mt Abu. The height of this climb is approximately 5,676 feet above sea level which is equivalent to Gurushikhar.

All the other treks are close to St Mary’s school but the climb to Plummy is on the other side altogether. It takes almost an hour by foot to reach the base of Plummy from St Mary School. So if the accommodation is near or around St Marys it is advisable to take a student or professor for the hike to Plummy as the way to the base is a little complicated.

Start of the hike to Plummy

On the way to the base of Plummy there is a highway that has to be crossed to get to the other side, also on the way one there is a lot of wilderness to be crossed with houses of locals also there. When near the base there is a small temple and it is said that once a local found a small piece of meteoroid there and kept it in the temple as an offering to the deity and that is how the temple came about.

At the foot of the climb, there is a stream of freshwater with a lot of rocks where you will find climbers taking a wash and resting after the climb is complete. Climbers are advised to carry a lot of water as the climb is for more than 4 hours. While climbing people are advised not to drink water as it causes slow downs, only after reaching the top it is advised to drink water.
