During our trip to Dalhousie we saved our visit to Dainkund peak for the last day and what a way it was to finish our journey in the Himalayas. Clad in the lap of clouds with colourful flowers dotting the valley the entire trek upto the Pohlani Mata temple at the peak was nothing short of a heavenly experience. Being... More

A newly laid out motorable road till the Peak makes a visit fom Dalhousie a must. We found very few tourists on the road probably since it is just being complete and most hotel guides mention that the last stretch requires walking. The road is good and the Peak gives a enchanting view of the hills below covered with clouds... More

Trek to temple is tiring as it is somewhere around 2.5 kms of steep climb but views from the top are totally worth it. You get the best views of dalhousie from this place.

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

The steep climb uphill Dainkund is worthwhile once one views the entire landscape from the observatory atop. However, word of caution for the faint hearted or those prone to cold, the climb uphill will necessitate walking through icy cold wild winds. even in monsoons one may feel numb by the cold winds by the time they reach the observatory hut....

If you are going dalhousie, include this place in your schedule and you will just love the entire experience. A heavenly place which is a must visit for all. Trek is not that difficult and always carry an umbrella as weather changes in seconds....
