Dalhousie

Dalhousie - A hill station in the state of Himachal Pradesh (India) - truly justifying it's location with one of the very few travel destinations maintaining it's raw and untouched natural beauty. This is a place you would like to visit again and again...not because there is anything great here. In fact, there is nothing in particular, the tranquility and peace of the place mesmerizes you. The beauty of Himalayas is in full swing.

                        A beautiful hillstation in the western Himalayas. Established in 1854 by the British Empire in India as a summer retreat for its troops and bureaucrats, the town was named after LORD DALHOUSIE who was the British Viceroy in India at that time. Built on and around five hills. Located on the western edge of the Dhauladhar mountain range of the Himalayas, it is surrounded by the beautiful scenery of snow-capped peaks. Dalhousie is situated at 6000-9000 feet above sea level.

                       Dalhousie is a gateway to the ancient Chamba Hill State, now Chamba District of the Himachal Pradesh, India. This hill region is a repository of ancient Hindu culture, art, temples, and handicrafts preserved under the longest running single dynasty since the mid-6th century. Chamba is the hub of this culture. Bharmour, the ancient capital of this kingdom, is home to Gaddi and Gujjar tribes and has 84 ancient temples from 7th-10th century AD. Pangi Valley is remote and highly inaccessible most of the year. It is located between the Pir Panjal and the Greater Himalayan ranges. It is home to Pangwal and Bhot tribes.

                      Rivers Ravi and Chandrabhaga (Chenab) take origin and nourishment from its glaciers. There are several hydroelectric projects and dams being developed. There are several national forest and wildlife sanctuaries including Kalatop-Khaijjar located within its confines. Pilgrimage to Mani Mahesh Temple and Lake is an annual trekking event. Many trekking routes over Dhauladhar and Pir Panjal ranges present a challenge to the serious trekker, while there are ample opportunities for the budding trekker.
