Dalhousie, in the northern Indian state of Himachal Pradesh, is a charming hill station that was named after Lord Dalhousie- the erstwhile British Governor-General to India. Standing majestically at the base of the Himalayas Dhauladhar range, it's a picture-perfect hill station with a blend of tranquillity and typical hilly flavour. Eye-catching cottages and villas, a dash of all-round greenery of deodar and pine trees, the magnificent mountains and the luscious rice fields, Dalhousie is the best possible amalgamation of stunning scenic grandeur and unblemished nature.
Dalhousie is visited by tourists from all parts of the globe for its charming architecture, picturesque beauty of plains and mesmerising views of the snow-capped mountains. This picturesque town is dotted with colonial-era buildings, pine-enveloped slopes, towering pines, lofty deodars, soaring oaks, and beautiful rhododendron plants in red and pink. The heart-stopping beauty of Dalhousie goes many notches up through scenes of walnuts, alpine flowers, strawberries and chillies.
Tourists in Dalhousie can visit Kalatope (at 8 km) for the best of views of the fabulous surroundings of the hill station. If Panchpulla promises to be a wonderful picnic spot, then Dainkund or the Singing Hill would charm for its charm. Major places to visit here include Dainkund Peak, Khajjiar, Bakrota Hills, Village Lohali, Gandhi Chowk, Dalhousie Cantonment and Sadar Bazar.
