At 3300 meters and 8 km from Narkanda, when you travel through the road surrounded by pine and spruce trees, on top of the hill, is situated an ancient Hatu Mata temple. The peaks offers spectacular view of the entire Himalayan ranges, snow clad mountains and in depths are the dense forests, green fields and apple orchards. On one side are the deep and steep valleys with tall deodar trees forming charming patterns and on the other side you can see rock solid mountains almost pushing you into the valley. With every turn of the road, you feel the sharp ascent and the scenery around you changes. Best view is of course from the top of the Hatu Peak viewpoint. On a clear day, you get a panoramic view of the snow capped Shrikhand Mahadev peaks from here. Hiking is recommended to reach the peak.
