DainKund” is the most fascinating place in the whole of Dalhousie. It is believed by the people of the Dainkund that in the old days there were witches living there who used to trouble the villagers to no end, because of this DainKund is also known by the name of  “Witch’s Pond”
The most beautiful and least visited place in Dalhousie is Dainkund. The trek from Dainkund to Jot is approximately 6-7 hours at about 3000m. On a clear day three of the five Punjab Rivers are visible glittering in the sun shine and loosing themselves in the planes, beyond which it seems to melt away in the infinite space, these rivers are Satluj, Beas, Ravi, Chenab. The trek is lush green and the path manageable. We also trek through the realms of the Gaddi shepherds following the nomad trails through the most spectacular landscape.
