Chamba Tourism

Far from the rush of city life, Chamba is a small town in Uttarakhand that is known for pristine vistas of deodar and pine trees through Himalayan mountains. Promising a peaceful ambience, modernisation hasn't touched the borders of Chamba. A perfect getaway to find solace in nature, the refreshing, aromatic fragrance of apple and apricot orchards welcome you to the Chamba region.  

56 kms away from Dalhousie, Chamba is popular for its temples and adventure sports amidst the rolling Himalayan hills. If you enjoy adrenaline rushes, Chamba offers opportunities for rafting, trekking, camping, kayaking and other such sports. The Surara temple and Brajeshwari temples are other popular attractions. Chamba is a secret getaway near more popular tourist destinations of Uttarakhand like Mussoorie, Kanatal, Dhanaulti and Rishikesh.

This destination should not be confused with the similarly named Chamba in Himachal Pradesh.
