The ride is steep but short, those with an issue with climbing can hire a pony for about INR 400. Do bargain.

Surkhanda Devi Temple, Dhanaulti Overview

At a distance of about 8 km from Dhanaulti, and a 2 km trek from the village Kaddu Khal is the Surkanda Temple, that makes up for a trekker's paradise.

While the climb is tough, it's worth the view and serenity. Following the popular mythology of Sati jumping in to the sacrificial fire to go against her Father Daksha's act of not inviting Lord Shiva to a ceremony, this temple is one of the most popular 'Shaktipeeth' of India. A Shaktipeeth, going by the literal translation, is a holy site with the female goddess residing for her followers.
