"Beautiful destination with snowfall" new review

  • 5/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
It was very beautiful destination to enjoy snowfall during winter. The Eco Park was very neat, clean and beautiful. I visited in the month of December. In this month, with snow fall, this place looks like Srinagar. The only problem was less facility of hotels.

"Mussoorie's More Beautiful Cousin!"

  • Posted Aug 31, 2013
Dhanaulti is a beautiful hill town located at over 8000 feet above sea level. Thankfully it did not get robbed of it's beauty like its neighbour Mussoorie, which like most 'hill stations' in India has become totally concretised and commercialised over the last three decades. Thick pine forests, nice small snack counters and peace all around.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Dhanaulti Eco Park is not to be missed.

Activities & things to do: Walk around in Dhanaulti Eco Park, let yourself (and your kids, if you have) be sensitised about nature, bird life and the mountains. Take a pony ride, walk up to the 'potato farms', drive down to Surkanda Devi (9 kms away).

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: I would highly recommend Dhanaulti as an overnight destination, and much much better than Mussoorie, Manali or Nanitals of the world. Don't just go there for a day excursion. The best experience of this place and only be enjoyed late in the evenings around a bonfire and over an early morning walk through the clouds.

"Close to nature"

  • Posted May 5, 2013
Still unexplored and beautiful place in the lap of Himalayas. Healthy and fresh air which purifies your body and soul. It would be best if places like these do not become commercialized and remain the way they are. The place does not have many doctors and locals say they don't need any as people there seldom have any health related issues. Wonderful view of snow covered Himalayan range with aerial distance of not more than 50 km . Simply Superb!!!

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Nature is the best hing to see, however eco park is a nice place to visit and Tehri Dam which is 40 km from Dhanaulti. Not much to expect for shopping as the market consists of not more than 20 odd shops. You can get some rhododendron juice which grows naturally and considered good for gastric problems.

Activities & things to do: I did not go there looking for any activity though people do get there for trekking.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: BY train to Dehradun and a taxi from there would take around 2 hours to reach Dhanaulti. Bit risky to drive by yourself.

Its a nice, peaceful location situated at a good height. The view of snow capped mountains and specially the sunset point in Eco park is a treat to watch.

This is the place which is truely a destination of all family members! let me start with the parents: they have chance to find local products available at govt run shop for all kind of stuff from woollens to appricot oil etc.then e echo for youngesters there is echo point walk trail with bird watch to mesmarizing forest. and for kinds there is a park with activities like rope climbing, kids rock climbing and slides etc.so its an true full family destination...

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Food is so so in local retaurant but view is great from one or two which are situated on main road. food was great in hotel in which we stayed ,Apple orchid resort.shopping is great because you get product of local artisans.and best part is sold by govt authority with fix price.

Activities & things to do: Horse riding,walking trail on echo point, visit at orchid.

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.
