Dainkund stands at a height of approx 9000 feet and is accessible by a 2km walk. The trek is concrete stairs that are a bit steep and hence aged persons might find it a bit difficult.

Ask your hotel receptionist how to get here because most of the tour guides or drivers from the south doesnt know how to get here. The car goes up to a point from where you would have to walk up.

If you are at Dalhousie, do not miss this spot. Nice 2 km trek to the highest peak at Dalhousie wherein their is a Kali Mandir at the top. You would not regret going to this place.

We want on the trek to Dainkund and the pictures do not describe the beauty of this place. Awesome trek in the clouds, and amazing views when they move back!

Its refreshing as its away from city, you have to walk a lot to reach the peak, but on reaching at top the scenic view takes away all your tiredness and worries.

It is walk away hill top with beauty surrounding you. Hilltop view with full greenery around. The ride through top is fantastic experience. Wild wind, hypnotising trees and mountain peaks, curvy roads and round and round roads all makes your travel worth to the peak. ONe must visit this place at least once in lifetime.
