Been there couple of times, its a very beautiful hilltop with scenic view of the valley and mountains around. The trek to the top is through narrow man made walkways, at times steep and rocky, but you will find beautiful colourful flowers along the route to the top. Not at a great height, so non regular trekkers also enjoy the... More

Dainkund Peak by itself is offers a good view but it is highly recommended that you trek around 4 kms to the Kali Temple. Splendid views of snowclad Himalayas on the one side, and of the flower laden grassy meandering valleys on the other. Offers a view of Mount Kailash as well. The trek takes around 3 hours to the...

Dainkund peak is a beautiful natural place in clouds. You will feel so calm and in lap of nature when you reach the peak. However, you have to travel on feet to reach it but the way is comfortable and safe

Guides are available at the Dalhoussie market place. They do carry our water bottles etc. & take photos as well. What was surprising was our guide did not pester us as far as the shopping was concerned. He did not insist on any particular shop. He guided us to the market place & remained aloof when we went shopping. The... More

It was very chilling out there. Temperature must be around 2 degree temperature. It is called Flower valley but we were not able to see any flowers over there maybe because of chilly weather.

Its the solitude that makes the climb worth. We liked the hike. For kids its quite windy so they might not like it.

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. Halfway through the trek you will see a cottage sort of a point where a panaromic 360 degree view of the himalayas is visible.... More

Its nothing but a trek of about 20 mins, you see the entire city from the top but nothing great of a view as such. You can also see the himalayan ranges from the top.
