    Nature, nature, nature with its majesty
    See the majestic snow peaks of Himalayas and then a nice quiet place with trees and hills in eco park. The park is big and well maintained. Go to the top and sit there for any amount of time you like. If peace you wanted then here it is with nature. Perfect place for cooling down and relaxing.

    Gateway from Mussorie
    If you are unable to enter Mussoorie due to traffic or have already explored all its tourist attractions, consider visiting Dhanaulti. An eco-park is located on the right side of the road as you enter Dhanaulti, surrounded by several small eateries. The entry fee is Rs. 50. While the park itself may not offer any unique attractions, it provides a great opportunity for a long walk and plenty of photo opportunities.

    Nothing so good and attractive about this Eco Park I had founded here which was suggested by many Locals and You Tubers
    After driving so much of distance near about 45 kilometres from Mall Road Mussorie I reach this destination to find nothing excited nor any kind of panoramic view in this place. There is just an echo park which is well maintained and having an entry fee of just 50 per person. The park also provides an adventure activity like zip line walking bridge and others for kids. At the peak of the park there is a panoramic view where u can had some good pics. Overall it is not a such a good place worthy to visit here

Reaching dhanaulti from mussoorie to watch eco park just not worth it. Rs 50 entry ticket absolutely not worth it. But if you want to spend some peace time you can watch it. There are a lot of monkeys over there and it's really difficult to sit in peace there.

Dhanaulti Eco Park has no specific specialty. It has some good views. But the main attraction is the road trip from Mussoorie to Dhanaulti. Go to Eco Park just for the road trip.

P. S. Dhanaulti is colder than Mussoorie, even in daytime.

Visited Eco Park in June’22, the park is situated on the side of a main road. Dhanaulti is known for its scenic landscapes and natural beauty, barring that it offers limited other places to visit. Eco Park is one activity in and around the area, where one can spent some family time with nature. The park is well-maintained and covered with deodar and cedar trees, casual strolls through the trails and small hikes in these gardens was enjoyable. The entry fee is Rs. 20 per pax. Several snack shops are available opposite to the park. To summarise, a visit may be recommended if visiting Dhanualti.

Please avoid coming to dhanaulti specially. If its enroute then maybe a pitstop. Eco Park is just a wooded forest and nothing else. No special view. Go to tehri lake. Its mind blowing beautiful and unexplored. Do motor boat ride for 30 min and u will get a real feel of a foreign destination.

I have been here earlier too last year and this time in October first week. This time there was not too much crowd (unlike in summers) which is a good thing. Pictures of birds found in the area and nice place to sit, relax and have maggi and chai.

First of all, a word of caution! Dhanaulti is not for those who wish to go to a hill station to do shopping in fancy showrooms and visiting malls, watch movies in multiplexes, enjoy roller skates, billiards or golf. If you wish to have such things, Mussoorie or Shimla would be ideal choice for you. However, if you are tired of your hectic life, constant ringing of mobile, emails, visiting show rooms and doing endless shopping, an altogether different experience awaits you at Dhanaulti. Wandering in wilderness, bike ride, backpacking and trekking, living in bamboo huts, being taken in by the charm of snow clad hills and valleys, horse rides, pleasantly calm and serene environment, pine and rhododendron, butter rich parathas and curd, coffee and noodles, crystal clear mineral quality water are the things that Dhanaulti, a secluded, often forgotten hill station approx. 30 km. from Mussoorie on Mussoorie Chamba Road, Tehri.
If you have your loved ones with you, you are likely to enjoy staying in Garhwal Mandal Vikas Nigam (GMVN) huts at a price of Rs. 1,500/- per day or more depending upon the season. The roof and the walls of these beautiful huts are made of bamboo. Each hut is a self-contained unit with its own toilet, dressing table, chair, coffee table and double bed. In front of these rows of huts is a bugyal type ground with many pine trees and silk-smooth grass. Also available is a beautifully erected restaurant.
I had visited Dhanaulti in the month of March. Because of mistaken impression that I might not find even coffee there, I had taken a few sachets of milk powder and Nescafe with me so that I could mix these in hot water even in my hotel room. But to my pleasant surprise, I found one or two decent restaurants besides so many roadside tea shops where tea, coffee and 2-minutes noodles are the standard offerings.
Since I had not asked anyone in my family or friends to accompany me, I used my camera in those 24 hours to capture the essence of Dhanaulti - rhododendron and pine trees, monkeys, horses, hills and valleys, village children, shops and parks, swings and games, farms and roads. I can't say what other travellers feel about it but I can certainly spend a week or more at Dhanaulti provided of course I have got my Nikon DSLR camera and an enthusiastic, photogenic friend willing to get photographed ad infinitum! I wouldn't want my smart phone, TV or internet, car or other 'necessities' of life while staying at Dhanaulti.
There are two Eco Parks - Ambar (i.e. sky) and Dharaa (i.e. Earth). As the name suggests, Ambar Eco Park is bigger and higher whereas Dharaa is smaller and lower of the two. These parks are the happy outcome of a drive to provide employment to local youths and simultaneously develop picnic spots in Dhanaulti.
Paying the entry ticket (perhaps Rs. 20/- per person), I entered the park to find myself at a fun point. There were different types of swings, funny game, mild-adventure rides and yes, shops of snacks. Burma bridge had many girls and boys precariously walking from one end of it to the other. The most interesting was the flying fox wherein you walk upwards and ride a watch tower type of steel structure. You get yourself tied to a rope to keep yourself safe and then you fly downward hanging from the rope. Instead of trying to fly myself, I was content with taking pics of those children who were enjoying this slide. Both the parks are being maintained by Forest Department of Mussoorie (DFO) and local people who have got regular employment through it
A little ahead I found Eco Park (Ambar Eco Park) to my right. Ambar is Hindi name for sky and this park is named Ambar Park because it is higher than the other one which is named Dharaa Eco Park (Dhara = Earth). Paying the entry ticket (perhaps Rs. 20/- per person), I entered the park to find myself at a fun point. There were different types of swings, funny game, mild-adventure rides and yes, shops of snacks. Burma bridge had many girls and boys precariously walking from one end of it to the other.

Both the parks are being maintained by Forest Department of Mussoorie (DFO) and local people who have got regular employment through it.
Since I didn't have interest in these games except taking photographs of the children who were enjoying these, I decided to go further up in the Ambar Eco Park. I went higher and still higher on this stair shaped hill but there was virtually no end to it. I found potato farms high above and felt as if I was reincarnation of Columbus and had accidentally discovered North America. :) The view of snow clad Himalayas in distant North was breathtaking from such heights.
If you are going to Dhanaulti, don't go there to to 'do something' but to feel, smell, see the infinite charm of mother Nature. This is the only advice I can offer to my fellow travellers.
