This is a MUST VISIT place in Dalhousie and your vacation will remain incomplete if you don't. I'd strongly recommend a walk/hike to the top from the point where the road diverts towards Khajjiar to enjoy the raw nature and the beautiful views.

One of the most scenic places in Himachal.. this particular place provides breathtaking and mesmerizing views of the Himalayan mountains nearby. There is an interesting trek all the way upto the temple and every moment on that trek we could enjoy especially since weather had drizzling raindrops. The cloud clad mountain tops was a scene I still remember fresh. A... More

If you are in Dalhousie, don't miss this place! Dainkund is the highest peak in Dalhousie and there is a bit of trekking from where vehicles drop you to the top. At the top there is a temple of a Goddess and it takes about 15-30 min to reach there, depending upon your energy level; the views are to die... More

Its awesome and scenic throughout tracking area. Half of the tracking is through rough roads and rest through unstructured stairs. Maggie stall at the top is worth to experience..Should be counted...

Best part of it was trekking in snow clad mountains to the top where there was an ancient temple. We did not have proper boots hence struggled a bit in the snow

Nice climb and great experience. Wonderful to be there and great view and flowers. 1.5-2 KMs of climb and full of flowers (white flowers) makes it a lovely trekking and a Kali temple at the end.
