Dhanaulti – Weekend Travel Gateway

Hey Guys In This Dhanaulti Travel Blog I’m going to share each and everything about Dhanaulti . You will Get All the Information like how to reach, what to do and where to stay, everything about Dhanaulti..

So here we go…..

A drive of roughly one hour from the popular hill station of Mussoorie is the tiny and less noisy hill station of Dhanaulti Because of the rush to Mussoorie in the summers, a lot of people nowadays are preferring Dhanaulti over its more famous neighbour because of the laid back serene ambience that it exudes all-round the year.

From Dhanaulti, one can also visit the sacred sites of Surkanda Devi Temple, Chandrabadni and Kunjapuri. This region also receives huge snowfall in winter season.

The other region of Uttarakhand is the Kumaon Himalayas. The origin of the name Kumaon has its roots in the legend of the Kurma Avatar of Lord Vishnu in Hinduism. One of the most beautiful spots in this region, which is not part of every tourist map is the tiny hamlet of Abbott Mount.

The place is beautiful and serene with the mighty Himalayan peaks cowering all around. Travellers here claim that they have seen ghosts, who have believed to throng its old colonial houses ever since its early days, making the place eerie and mysterious.

Another beautiful place in this region is the lake of nine corners – Naukuchiatal, which is easily accessible from Nainital. This place also hosts the unique Escape Festival of Art and Music every year. Uttarakhand is truly a place close to heaven.

Why You Must Take a Solo Trip to Dhanaulti

Dhanaulti, a gorgeous town a few kilometres from Mussoorie, is nestled amidst the lofty Himalayas. While it’s more of a stop-over for travellers visiting other parts of Uttarakhand, it could well be a destination in its own right. The offbeat place makes it a favourite amongst solo travellers, and here’s what you must do on a visit to this quaint town.

Located at an altitude of 2,286m and away from the bustle, Dhanaulti offers a whole gamut of attractions as well as serenity and quietude in equal measure. While you wouldn’t find exceptionally fancy hotels and cafes here, the simple experiences more than make up for everything.

Surkanda Devi Temple

Among the many temples here, make sure you visit Surkanda Devi Temple. Perched at about 10,000 feet above sea level, it’s an age-old temple devoted to Goddess Parvati. It is quite popular among trekkers because of the 1.5 km trek from Kaddukhal Village that leads up to the temple. 

Dashavatar Temple also commands a visit; it is the earliest known Panchayatan temple in North India and is dedicated to Lord Vishnu.
