Vast meadows covered with thick carpets of green, soaring trees and splendid views of the Himalayas make Dhanaulti an alluring destination for the tourists.
A popular place for treks, particularly in the Tehri region of Garhwal, Dhanaulti is thus favoured by the tourists. Numerous of treks include Surkanda Devi, Chandrabadni and Kunjapuri that take you through the dense alpine forest.
Dhanaulti, east of Landour along the Tehri Road, is the location of the Surkhanda Devi shrine. Dhanaulti is an excellent place to spend a day wandering amidst the deodars, with nothing to break the silence except the call of the cicadas.
