"Bracing hill station"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Mar 13, 2018
Dalhousie offers solitude and tranquility and is quite sober compared to Michal hill stations such as Dharamshala or Manali . Best spot to visit is Dainkund, while the overrated Khajjiar is an avoid unless you wish to try paragliding. Avoid Kalatop too unless you are trekking there.

"Mesmerizing and majestic Dalhousie"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Jan 16, 2018
I visited Dalhousie in 1985 and again in January 2018. Old memories were staying in cantonment with lush green forest and Devdar trees all around even passing through the rooms and mess. Poor roads, lack of cleanliness and tourism facilities are big issues against the spirit of nature lovers but mother nature has blessed Dalhousie with so much beauty that I have enjoyed travelling through mesmerizing view of Peer Panel ranges, Devdar trees and cool breeze. Government would do well to improve tourism facilities and roads.

"Dainkund - A little paradise beyond Dalhousie"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Oct 29, 2017
Dainkund is a very small place a few kms above Dalhousie. The drive up the hills is just amazing. We went there in February and saw snow all around. There's around 2 km trek up to the Devi temple, which is worth the effort. The view from above is breathtaking. On our way back, instead of walking down the road, we climbed down a small mountain. It was truly amazing.
Dalhousie is a quiet place unlike other crowded hill stations and that's the reason anyone can instantly fall in love with it. With a 360 degree mountain view, you cannot ask for more.
1. Book a room through OYO and you won't be disappointed.
2. Take an overnight train to Pathankot and hire a cab. Journey is just 2. 5 hrs from there and memorable.
3. Trust the locals; they are your best guide.
4. Plan a day trip to Dainkund, Khajiar and Kala Top. Try some adventure activities, bask under the sun, trek, enjoy maggi and chai and snow, if you're lucky like us.

"Excellent Journey"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Oct 29, 2017
Dalhouse was the nice destination for me. I heard about the beauty of Dalhouse but after a long gap I finally got a chance to visit this place. This is nice quiet calm and cool place. I like this place because I found it is colder than Shimla, Manali etc. Very panoramic lake surrounded with mountain and a great Temple finally Switzerland of India called Khajjiar was superb and no word to explain about the beauty of the place. Local food and shopping is poor. I advice to tourist a visit this place and come across with a great experience.

"Dalhousie - A beautiful destination"

  • Posted Oct 26, 2017
Khajjiar, ChamerÓ Dam, Dainkund Peak, St. Francis' Church, Chamba are the places we visited. We planned our trip via Amritsar and had a stopover there too, so that going to Dalhousie from Delhi does not become too tiresome. Amritsar has its own charm and history, which we tried to explore in our brief trip there.
