at first you may think of trekking so much as you have to trek for app. 1.5km up the mountain for the Mataji Mandir. But believe me its worth. The view from the top or e1 while trekking also is very nice. Just apply the sunscreen, wear ur shoes and climb climb climb.

You can reach the base by taxis and then you need to trek for about 1.5 Km to reach the peak. The first 600 m of the trek is steep and many people give up then. However the remaining trek is not that steep and difficult and can be easily done. We are a couple with a 8 year boy... More

You will need to climb up many stairs to reach the place. At the top there is a spot created from where you can have a good view of the surroundings. not recommended for people who have knee pain and height phobic.

Trek is on your way to khajjiar, down hill road goes to khajjiar and uphill road goes to trek. We started early around 8 am from hotel, our driver dropped us near army camp around 8.30. Trek is almost 600 mm wide (very narrow), you can devide it in 3 portion. First portion is steep (till mountain view point). Best... More

Beautiful place with mesmerising view. There is a trek of almost 600m which is steep after which its gradual up and down( 900m). Cool breeze and pleasant views instigate you to move further. the small Kali temple at the end of trek is completely surrounded by mountains gives u immense calmness. P.s. 1)do carry ur woolens and water bottles and... More

When we visited the peak was unfortunately hidden in a fog. You can take taxi for most of the road up, then it is just a few minutes of walking,

beautiful place, must visit on a dalhousie trip. Dainkund has got a trek for almost 45 mins but worth treking up to see those amazing view from the hill top.

It's roughly a 1.5 km trek to a small temple located in a picturesque backdrop. The trek to the top is pretty steep for the first 600 mts. or so, but post that it's more like a gradual slope with ups and downs. The trek is a must do as the view of the snow capped peaks from the temple(which... More

You need walk around 2 kms with slightly steep steps and walkways, but the overall experience is excellent. The place, especially the second half was not crowded since most folks give up on walking half way through. The temple at the end of the trail is mediocre, but the surrounding hills give very good views of the mountains. The more... More
