Dhanaulti Info

  • State: Uttarakhand
  • Famous for/as: Hill
Amidst the oak, deodar and rhododendrons, in the Tehri Garhwal district of Uttarakhand, is the town of Dhanaulti. It is situated at a height of 2286 metres above sea level and is close to the hill stations of Mussourie (24 km) and Chamba (29 km). This hill station is visited by most tourists during the summer season.

With abundant deodar trees, the newly created Eco Park is a popular tourist spot. The region is full of sightseeing places and excursions which include visits to potato farms, Chamba, Surkanda Devi Temple and to Mussourie. The hilly terrain provides a unique opportunity for trekking, mountain climbing and camping.

Dhanaulti is linked to the major towns in north India such as Delhi and Dehradun, where airports are located. Dehradun is the closest town where a large number of accommodation options are available. The destination can also be reached by road through the Mussourie Chamba road.

In summers, the hilly areas of Dhanaulti are cool while the cold winters experience snowfall. There is a continuous drizzle during the rainy season from July to September and the mist and fog cover the hill tops. During the Dussehra festival, tourists can indulge in the Surkhananda Devi fair, which is the time of worship of goddess Durga.

"All snow and a romantic place to chill" new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
Dhanolti is a beautiful Himalayan town, located amidst thick Pine, Cedar, and Rhododendron forest, excellent weather round the year and great view of snow capped Himalayan peaks, at a distance of 25 kms on Mussoorie Chamba Road. Warm peace and warmth of hospitable people welcomes you at Dhanolti.

"A tranquil destination, Dhanaulti"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Dhanaulti is a less known tourist destination which is far from the crowd of Mussoorie and other tourist hot spots in UK. When we entered Dhanaulti, it was a serene feeling amidst pine forests and no human population around. It is completely a secluded hill stations with fewer number of hostels. And interestingly all hotels are blessed with the most amazing view of the Himalayan foothills. The view takes you to another world of sublime.

"Chivalric Mystic Destination"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Dhanaulti is a place of Heaven, just 24 Km from Massoorie, It is a relaxed place different from busy over crowded hills station, one can enjoy fresh air and cool climate, it is a small place with few hotel and less population, there is no market or restaurants as such, mobile connectivity is not much good, bsnl & land line works well. Dhanaulti forests are full of alpine, oak and rhododendron tress, the weather of this place is awesome in summers.

Very few places to visit: Eco-Park, Potato Farm, Apple Orchard, Camp Thangdhar, One can take a round to Eco Huts too, can snap beautiful pictures of a place, one can explore marvellous Kanatal it a just 20 km from Dhanaulti. It is best to visit only if you have your own conveyance as this place is in the heart of jungle. This is place you can enjoy pompous mountains, sunrise and majestic valley view, just stay in Club Mahindra Resort if your budget allows, do enjoy stay and enjoy awesome dinning.

"The mountains echoed!"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
It's a fine place to visit. Visited in month of may. The whether is nice here and provides you a respite from scorching heat of NCR. It is near Mussoorie. Buses go directly to this place in morning. The timings of buses are fixed and so you will have to make your schedule for that. Otherwise you can book taxis and share it with strangers. If in a group I would suggest go by taxi. It's like a big park on mountain top. Near this place is a big apple orchard where you are allowed to go. Nice romantic place.

"Nature at its best-Dhanaulti"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Dhanaulti is a place one must visit for its eco park which are very very well maintained. A big group is preferable for this place as there is not much to do except relaxing and enjoying the clean air the beautiful scenic sights and the food which is also pretty good. The charm for this place is that you can wander about for endless hours and never get bored of the mesmerising beauty.

"A awesome place with nature's beauty"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
I went there last year with my college friends in a college trip. This trip was a memorable trip for me. Dhanaulti is a place where you can go for peaceful environment. A place where you can see sun rise from top of mountains and feel fresh air that you don't get in Delhi like area's. My journey started from Delhi at night near about 9 pm and I enjoy every minute with my college friends. I reached there next morning at 5 am. At that time I was feeling little bit cold because of the lovely weather of Dhanaulti. Me and my college friend stayed there for 2 day. That 2 days were my so memorable days of my life. The sun rise, weather, peaceful environment, lovely people, smooth and snake like roads, the mountains. Makes Dhanaulti a perfect destination for a vacation. I will suggest everyone to visit Dhanaulti.

"Wonderful place to be with the nature"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Sep 3, 2015
If you are near Mussoorie and want to come near to nature then reach Dhanaulti. A place where everything is very calm and serene. No traffic. Long ways to walk if you enjoy walk and talk or even if you want to just be calm inside and enjoy yourself. We were here for two even if there not much places to see.

"Good for Relaxation but only for one day trip"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted May 27, 2015
Sightseeing is good if you are staying in camp. Eco park is good for trekking and photography. Food is available easily. Nothing to do there, only good for sightseeing and relaxation. Best time to visit is Oct to Jan. My advice - don't spend money on cab, try to take direct bus. You can also go to Mussoorie from there, its nice place if you have time for a day.
