About 15 km down the twirling road from Chamba to Dhanaulti is Kanatal. From here, you can head on to the quiet, scenic trail towards Bhairiyadunga and its tiny Parvati Temple. Walking in the other direction, for about 2 km, you’ll head to some stone steps leading up to the placid Surkhandeshwar Mahadev temple which had the loveliest vantage: several undulating tracts of hills, in varying shades of blue and green, rising out from behind each other.

Kanatal is a holiday where you can either relax, or walk a lot. The still lush Kodiya forest is 7 km away towards Chamba. The Batwaldhar forest, 7 km from Kanatal en route Dhanaulti, is thick with chir, deodar and fir trees. The Blue Dahlia Farms here grows organic herbs and vegetables. Further ahead towards Dhanaulti, Surkhanda Devi is a revered 13th century shrine atop the mountain and a short climb up, dedicated to Sati, Shiva’s consort. Devotees throng the temple during May-June for the Ganga Dussehra fair.
