In this May month , i decide to travel mussoorie at cheapest price.Then i started searching cheapest hotels at mussoorie ( it is very difficult to find cheapest hotel during peak season ), after spending some time at internet, i got Youth hostel near mussoorie lake with a cost of 500 inr for a single room. i booked the room immediately and plan to travel by Haryana Roadways bus which is from karnal to dehradun ISBT.
Near 4:15 PM i reached to dehradun bus stand, now i am looking for local bus, i see there, huge croud is stand at counter for booking their seat in local bus. i also got a ticket and sit on a seat, it gives me a feelings of winner, because most of the people failed to get their ticket at counter. Nearly at 7.30 PM, i reached to my Youth hostel mussoorie. Checked in, take rest at room. Room is not good.
After taking rest, i take a tea at outside park of YTH canteen.Then i looked towards the mussoorie lake, a cold wave of wind striking to my face, it gives me pleasure. After 8:00 PM, i went to hostel mess. The food of this mess was very bad, i can’t explain. So in the next day morning, i reached to mussoorie lake, it is a cool place where you can spend some time by boating and eating fast foods. After spending some time at lake, i decided to move towards the Mall road. Approximate 10:00 AM, i approached to mall road by taking a taxi of 400 Inr. A big rush is moving on the mall road street here and there, most of them are newly married couples.
After spending some time, i am confused to decide to travel either kempty fall or Dhanaulti ( Surkhanda devi mandir ). A local passenger told me that there is huge rush at kempty fall and people throws away bear/wine bottle into the fall which may lead injury during bathing under the fall, many of peoples peeing in the water in the fall, which also lead skin diseases. He told me to travel at Dhanaulti because of high quality of fresh air, lower crowed, beautiful sight seen and much more.
Then my decision to visit Dhanaulti was final, it is approximate 24 kms from mussoorie mall road and it takes 1:30 Hrs to reach Dhanaulti by taxi.
During the journey, there is lots of greenery sigh seens with a cool blowing wind, which attracted my heart and giving pleasures. At that time only one thoughts in my mind is that “perhaps there will be a little home of mine “.Really it was a great enjoyments during travelling.After some time, our taxi approached Surkanda Devi temple situated at Kaddukhal Village and at the same time raining is started,
There are some shops at the Kaddukhal Village near taxi stand, and it was a lunch time also, take rest and lunch for a while, and journey is started towards the temple. Distance between village and temple is approximately 1.5 KM. It will take 1 hr to reach temple, if you are from Delhi or nearby station, After making darshan of mata Parvati and lord Shiva. Planned to come back home. It was a very pleasant journey
