Dalhousie HotelsSearch Hotel By Name:
Dalhousie, one of the most treasured jewels deposited in the meritorious casket of Himachal Pradesh is a peachy little hill station of Chamba District that has earned an international standing as a popular tourist destination of Northern India. Spread across the five resplendent hills namely Kathlog (Kathalagli), Portreyn, Tehra (Moti Tibba), Bakrota and Balun (Bhangora) on the western rim of the Dhauladhar Mountain Range of the Himalayas, Dalhousie; the ‘toran’ to Chamba is a quiet and quaint hill resort dating back to the epoch of British Colonization in India. Established under the patronage of British Empire in 1854 AD, the civic receives its epithet from the name of Lord Dalhousie; the then British Viceroy and Governor-General of India. Originally conceived as a pleasant summer retreat for the British Bureaucrats and their army troops, the present day Dalhousie, still retaining its Victorian Aura and its old world charm immediately transports us back to the 19th century India.
Enclosed by staggering snow crowned Himalayan Peaks teeming with luxuriant pine, deodar and oak woods and studded with ethereal rhododendron flowers, Dalhousie is indeed the Arcadia descended upon the earth. The angelic river Ravi meandering through the Dhauladhar highlands and verdant valleys below the Dalhousie mesa adds to the pizzazz of this ‘Promised Land’. This quiescent hill station endowed with serene, calm and composed milieu offers an ideal vacation for those who want to loosen up and de-stress in the soothing and tranquil cradle of Mother Nature. Here one can form an intimate bond with cosmos and synthesize the tunes of one’s own heart with the melodies of majestic macrocosm. Perfect for the honeymooners and peace seekers, the undulating landscape of the five hilled Dalhousie yields excellent opportunities of hiking, trekking and long picnic walks for the nature lovers and adventure enthusiasts.
Exceptionally admired for its spectacular scenic pulchritude and immensely enjoyable and salubrious climate, Dalhousie is certainly a utopian holiday spot of India blessed with peerless picturesque vistas and enticing seraphic ambience. Brimming with lofty Victorian mansions, imposing Scottish edifices and archaic Anglican churches, Dalhousie, a repository of ancient Indian and English architectural and cultural legacy is best visited during summer.
