"Dainkund - A little paradise beyond Dalhousie"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Oct 29, 2017
Dainkund is a very small place a few kms above Dalhousie. The drive up the hills is just amazing. We went there in February and saw snow all around. There's around 2 km trek up to the Devi temple, which is worth the effort. The view from above is breathtaking. On our way back, instead of walking down the road, we climbed down a small mountain. It was truly amazing.
Dalhousie is a quiet place unlike other crowded hill stations and that's the reason anyone can instantly fall in love with it. With a 360 degree mountain view, you cannot ask for more.
1. Book a room through OYO and you won't be disappointed.
2. Take an overnight train to Pathankot and hire a cab. Journey is just 2. 5 hrs from there and memorable.
3. Trust the locals; they are your best guide.
4. Plan a day trip to Dainkund, Khajiar and Kala Top. Try some adventure activities, bask under the sun, trek, enjoy maggi and chai and snow, if you're lucky like us.

"Excellent Journey"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Oct 29, 2017
Dalhouse was the nice destination for me. I heard about the beauty of Dalhouse but after a long gap I finally got a chance to visit this place. This is nice quiet calm and cool place. I like this place because I found it is colder than Shimla, Manali etc. Very panoramic lake surrounded with mountain and a great Temple finally Switzerland of India called Khajjiar was superb and no word to explain about the beauty of the place. Local food and shopping is poor. I advice to tourist a visit this place and come across with a great experience.

"Dalhousie - A beautiful destination"

  • Posted Oct 26, 2017
Khajjiar, ChamerÓ Dam, Dainkund Peak, St. Francis' Church, Chamba are the places we visited. We planned our trip via Amritsar and had a stopover there too, so that going to Dalhousie from Delhi does not become too tiresome. Amritsar has its own charm and history, which we tried to explore in our brief trip there.

"Best road trip if you are not going in winter as it will be covered in snow"

  • Posted Oct 24, 2017
It has good roads expect the road to khajjair lake which is one of the best locations
It looks so beautiful while you are riding, you feel the cool breeze and warm rays at the same time between the trees that taller than 4 floors building
And the most important thing is sunset, it will be the best view in your life
