The walk to the Surkanda devi temple from the base is steep and about 2-2.5 kms but the landscape is excellent. There are two routes to go to the Surkanda Devi Temple,
1) Cemented walkway : It takes about 45 min to reach the temple.
2) Slightly difficult but very interesting trekking route (Natural walkway) : It take 1.5 to 2 hour to reach the temple.
Horses/Ponies ride also available for children, Aged peoples and ladies Devotees.
Top of the mountains, view of himalayas was very charismatic and wonderful, snow laden peaks of himalayas are easily visible from this place, the environment is calm and holy. People visiting Mussoorie must visit this place not only for Hindu Shrine but also for its scenic beauty.
