There is an Airforce Base station in Daikund & filming of the base(even that direction) is strictly prohibited (u are also monitored). As Indian citizens be responsible, lets not help our neighbours. If you are a foreigner then be extra careful else you will be prosecuted under federal laws...

Today, firstly we explored Kalatop and did some photographic sessions. And then we headed towards "Dian Kund" which is a 7KMs drive. Dian kund has a small 2KMs trek. And one can reach it easily. "Dian kund" itself is a historical place wherein Goddess Kali incarnated in small girl and fought with demons. And then later, goddess appeared in one of the local people's dream and stated that, this place is safe and free from evil spirits. You can easily travel from this peak by making a small temple. And from there on, many visitors and the people who had faith in Goddess Kali came here and took the blessings.One can also enjoy the mighty "Manimahesh Kailash" peak view from here.After some more photographic sessions, we headed towards back to our hotel in Kalatop. (where we were again blessed with one more amazing Sunset)
