I reached the pauri bus stand.  From here the kandoliya temple is approx. 2 km.  the temple is located on the hill top.  I was thrilled to see the whole pauri from the temple.  Even in the summers you will see the snow on the hill top of the mountain.

The pine Trees are all over the hills as if surrounding the temple. After the darshan you may visit the Kandoliya Park to enjoy the natural serenity.  

Though the Kandoliya temple is located inside the dense forest of pine trees.  Near to Temple there is a Kandoliya park.  The place is serene and peaceful.

As reported by the locals, there may be possibility of wild animals due to the dense forest, please take necessary precautions.
