Trek to Diankund & Pohlani Temple through clouds - Dalhousie, Himachal Pradesh

During my recent visit to Dalhousie, we planned to do a small trek to Dainkund (Temple Pohlani). This Photo Journey shares about our experience through clouds and how we beaten the rain. And if you are in Dalhousie during Monsoon, this trek is highly recommended. You literally walks through clouds and it's an easy trek.We drove through Kala Top to the base of this trek, which is entry gate of Air force base. We parked our car there and started the trek. There is well paved path for 1 km, which is maintained by temple authority. This path certainly made our lives easy during monsoons.This is a view after walking up for 250 meters. This road goes down to Dalhousie and Kala Top.As we started the trek, rain started and we thought of skipping it and going to Khajjiar instead. But in few minutes we encouraged each other to use umbrellas and start climbing up. And at the end it proved to be rewarding.Clouds were playing hide and seek with us. At times, they were chasing us and in few minutes sun was shining by clearing them away.Throughout the trek you are exposed to some breathtaking views of valley full of high deodars and birds flying all around. We saw few colorful butterflies on our way but couldn't click them well.We did the trek at our own pace. Stopped many times and enjoyed quick snacks which we were carrying with us. And Urvi was always ready to pose :)On the way, there is a temple which is 2.5 kilometers away from road. Lot of local folks visit this temple. Interesting most of the temples in this region don't have roofs. There is a little shop near the temple from where you can buy snacks and juices.While walking through the mountains, Vibha pointed towards this cloud form. With a smile she says - 'doesn't it look like a giraffe?'. Do you think so?There is a beautiful view through clouds. Most of the times clouds stopped our view of surroundings but such views through clouds were very special.This is 3 kilometers trek which means you need to walk for 6 kilometers. And we had 3 years old trekker with us. Mentioning that to share that anyone can do this trek. It's very easy and the experience can be very rewarding. On a clear day, Khajjiar is visible from top.Panoramic views from top were mesmerizing.There is small shelter on the way. We took a break here where it started raining heavily.Every now and then we were stopping to views awesome scenes all around us. Here Urvi is trying to locate Khajjiar :)Not sure what Indu is trying to do on phone because there is no signal on these hills :) . Probably checking the photograph she just clicked with her phone.We reached there quite early and met this gentleman. He offers horse riding to tourists coming to this place.Urvi loved walking throughout and showing some interesting views to us. Vibha and Urvi were most observant from the lot.It was time to head back and don't miss to watch time-lapse videos shared below.

And if you are in Dalhousie during Monsoon, this trek is highly recommended. You literally walks through clouds and it's an easy trek.We drove through Kala Top to the base of this trek, which is entry gate of Air force base. We parked our car there and started the trek. There is well paved path for 1 km, which is maintained by temple authority. This path certainly made our lives easy during monsoons.This is a view after walking up for 250 meters. This road goes down to Dalhousie and Kala Top.As we started the trek, rain started and we thought of skipping it and going to Khajjiar instead. But in few minutes we encouraged each other to use umbrellas and start climbing up. And at the end it proved to be rewarding.Clouds were playing hide and seek with us. At times, they were chasing us and in few minutes sun was shining by clearing them away.Throughout the trek you are exposed to some breathtaking views of valley full of high deodars and birds flying all around. We saw few colorful butterflies on our way but couldn't click them well.We did the trek at our own pace. Stopped many times and enjoyed quick snacks which we were carrying with us. And Urvi was always ready to pose :)On the way, there is a temple which is 2.5 kilometers away from road. Lot of local folks visit this temple. Interesting most of the temples in this region don't have roofs. There is a little shop near the temple from where you can buy snacks and juices.While walking through the mountains, Vibha pointed towards this cloud form. With a smile she says - 'doesn't it look like a giraffe?'. Do you think so?There is a beautiful view through clouds. Most of the times clouds stopped our view of surroundings but such views through clouds were very special.This is 3 kilometers trek which means you need to walk for 6 kilometers. And we had 3 years old trekker with us. Mentioning that to share that anyone can do this trek. It's very easy and the experience can be very rewarding. On a clear day, Khajjiar is visible from top.Panoramic views from top were mesmerizing.There is small shelter on the way. We took a break here where it started raining heavily.Every now and then we were stopping to views awesome scenes all around us. Here Urvi is trying to locate Khajjiar :)Not sure what Indu is trying to do on phone because there is no signal on these hills :) . Probably checking the photograph she just clicked with her phone.We reached there quite early and met this gentleman. He offers horse riding to tourists coming to this place.Urvi loved walking throughout and showing some interesting views to us. Vibha and Urvi were most observant from the lot.It was time to head back and don't miss to watch time-lapse videos shared below.

And we had 3 years old trekker with us. Mentioning that to share that anyone can do this trek. It's very easy and the experience can be very rewarding. On a clear day, Khajjiar is visible from top.Panoramic views from top were mesmerizing.There is small shelter on the way. We took a break here where it started raining heavily.Every now and then we were stopping to views awesome scenes all around us. Here Urvi is trying to locate Khajjiar :)Not sure what Indu is trying to do on phone because there is no signal on these hills :) . Probably checking the photograph she just clicked with her phone.We reached there quite early and met this gentleman. He offers horse riding to tourists coming to this place.Urvi loved walking throughout and showing some interesting views to us. Vibha and Urvi were most observant from the lot.It was time to head back and don't miss to watch time-lapse videos shared below.

If you liked this post and found it helpful, I would request you to follow these things when traveling -

- Manage your waste well and don’t litter
- Use dustbins. Tell us if you went to a place and found it hard to locate a dustbin.
- Avoid bottle waters in hills. Usually you get clean water in hills and water bottles create lot of mess in our ecosystem.
- Say big no to plastic and avoid those unhealthy snacks packed in plastic bags. Rather buy fruits.

- Don't play loud blaring music in forests of jungle camps. You are a guest in that ecosystem and disturbing the locals (humans and animals) is not polite

Purba - Thanks for your lovely comments :)

Pendown - Thanks. These clouds surely have some magic. I clicked hundreds of photographs of these.

Rupam - Thanks ! Time-Lapse in phone cameras is awesome these days. Much easier to use and get reasonably good quality.
