We hiked up the Dainkund Peak (all the way up to Pohlani Mata Temple) on a tight schedule and with a 2 year old in about 2 hours time (to-and-fro). It was exhausting as expected, but we wish we had more time to do it leisurely and enjoy the scenery more!! Some parts are pretty steep and others are more... More

Must include in your itinerary. The initial walk (800-900m) may be strenuous for elderly, but the remaining is very leisurely level walk. My kids (2 years and 9 years old) could easily do it and had fun walking up and were really thrilled on getting to the top. The views are fantastic and depending upon the season you could get...

My wife and I are avid trekkers, and it was difficult to resist the Dainkund trek after lookig at the pictures. Its a 2-3 kms trek up to the top. The first half up-hill is little strenuous since its steep. But the path on the second half is on flatter land and mesmerizing as you can see the lush green... More
