is a quiet town, with a sense of enchantment. This hill station spreads over
five low-level hills at the western edge of the Dhauladhar range, just east
of the Ravi River. The picturesque town is interspersed with the
colonial-era buildings, low roofed stalls and hotels. The pine-covered
slopes around it are intersected with paths and treks, which are ideal for
short undemanding walks and trekking tours on Dalhousie holidays.
The gateway to the Chamba Valley, this colonial town was established in
1854 by the British governor-general Lord Dalhousie. Covering an area of 14
sq.-km and surrounded by alpine vegetation, Dalhausie has charming
architecture and panoramic views of both plains and the whitecapped views of
the mountainous ranges.
