Dalhousie, a popular hill station in Himachal Pradesh is situated at a height of 1,970 metres above sea level. Boasting views of the snow-capped peaks of Dhauladhar ranges, Dalhousie is famous for its meadows, dense jungles and waterfalls. Established in 1854, it was named after Lord Dalhousie and this hill station was one of the favourite summer destinations of the Britishers during the colonial era.
Dalhousie offers an old-world charm, mesmerizing natural landscapes, pine-clad valleys, flower-bedecked meadows, fast-flowing rivers, and magnificent misty mountains. The Scottish and Victorian architecture reminds you of its colonial heritage while the wispy air continues to hone British aromas.
