point in the area overlooking the picturesque landscape of Dalhousie is the
Daikund Peak. It lies 10 kms away from Dalhousie at an altitude of 2755 m above
the mean sea level from there. The wide ranging view of the forests and river
is awe inspiring. It is also called the Singing Hill as the wind whistling
through the trees gives calm, soothingly musical effect.
informations regarding Daikund Peak
at Daikund Peak
magnificent Daikund Peak has many picture-perfect views but sadly people seldom
visit this place in the vicinity of Dalhousie. Myth has it that the place is
haunted by witches who give it the name “Dain Kund” or “Witches
Pond”. Today looking for a witch here will be a futile exercise, but if we
believe in the myth then one must say that the witches had chosen a beautiful
place to haunt. Hardly will you come across such a place in the lap of nature.
The village is ideal to pitch a tent, light a bonfire and enjoy the views that Mother
Nature has to offer.
