Historical Background

A few decades ago there used to be a lake by the name of Kanatal; now it dried up and hence the name Kanatal, which literally means “one eyed lake” in Hindi.

Surkanda Devi is a temple in Kaddukhal, dedicated to Sati. Surkanda is where the head of Sati was fallen off after Shiva carried her on his trishool from Kankhal, Haridwar after she set herself on fire. Located at a height of 9995 feet, you get a 360-degree view from the top of the temple. This temple is 8 km on the road to Mussoorie to Kaddukhal.

The temperature here ranges between 10-20 degrees Celsius during summer, and 5-10 degrees Celsius during winter. The location experiences heavy snowfall blocking roads in winters. Due to the high altitude, Kanatal faces unpredictable high winds.

Kanatal has an average elevation of about 8500 feet (2590 meters). The highest point is Surkanda Devi Temple, at a height of about 9,995 feet. Water is scarce in the region.

Kanatal is connected by road to Delhi and major cities. The closest railway station and airport is Dehradun.
