Your visit will be incomplete if you fail to visit this place & finish the trek. It will be pretty awesome if you do a bike ride as the road is amazing. We did a bike ride right from Dharamshala - Mcleodganj - Dalhousie - Dainkund Peak...its simply breathtaking. The higher you go better view & lots n lots of... More

This is one trek without which a visit to Dalhousie would be incomplete. The half way climb is a bit steep, after which is a flat walk to a temple. The views are awesome. I could go only half way, as there was heavy snow beyond the half way point.

One should visit this hill. It's beautiful and offers a breathtaking view. The trek is treacherous but worth it as the views offered are spellbinding. Although there was a lot of snow when we visited in March but the views are very nice. Bright sun on one side and heavy snow on the other side gave us a very unique... More

A trip to Dalhousie would not be incomplete if you don't visit Dainkund Peak. It's require quite a significant effort to reach at the top of Dainkund Peak. I saw 50% of the travellers returning half way that time. However, it did not bother me and I keep moving ahead on this steep climb to this Peak. One can view... More

A steep climb in the beginning takes your breath away and so does the view when you complete the trek to the Pahalani Devi Temple. Enroute mid way through the trek one gets the birds eye view of the Khajjiar Meadows. The view of the Pir Panjal range from Dainkund is mindblowing especially if one visits in winter season. The...

This is one of the best tourist points provided you are willing to trek and walk over inclined stone pavements. We visited in September 2013. At the start the trek looks daunting and most visitors are content with reaching the halfway mark but the real scenery begins after the halfway mark and all the way to the top. The half... More

The trek was good but do take RASHID - tourist guide for a memorable trip. Also wear a good pair of shoes. Be careful and treak slowly.
