Day 3
On 3rd day we had our breakfast at hotel and then reached to Subash chowk to hire local taxi for local sight visit. As we have already covered punj pula, we got a deal to visit khajjyar, kala top wild life sanctuary and dainkund at 2050 INR.

We reached dainkund at 11:35 am and spent 4 hours doing trekking of 2.5 km. When we asked our driver about how this place is so beautiful and looks like untouched place of nature with no hotels and resort nearby, he told us that the reason is it comes in remote location and under army area and secondly this place is still considered to be haunted by dain( witch) . This place was so beautiful that we just do not want to come downhill back to our parked taxi. Please find below video link to dainkund.

Our second stoppage was kalatop, there nothing special on this location as compared to dainkund, I recommend skip this place or go for trekking in the woods rather going in car. Route to the destination is more beautiful than kala top.

There is one route to khajjyar by trekking 12 km. I do not recommend this for family with kids.
