Arriving at Doon



If you drive down from Delhi, the first hint of Dehra dun is in the form of thick forests which you suddenly find yourself in the midst of. These are a part of Rajaji National Park, and if you are lucky you may even find yourself face to face with a herd of elephants ! But thats, really speaking, rare !!

You then go through about 20 minutes of driving through a low hilly area, part of the long Shivalik Range of mountains. Dehra Dun is actually a valley, between the Shivalik Range and the Himalayas.
Perched on top of a small hill, you'll reach the "Dat Ki Devi", an ancient temple of a Goddess believed to be garding the approach to Dehra Dun. Before entering or leaving the valley, tradionally we all pray at this temple and seek the Goddesses blessings!!

Immediately after the temple is a short tunnel, known as the "Timili Pass" in the olden days.
