Dalhousie is located at an altitude of 2700 metres. A hill Station in North India, it is considered to be the getaway of the Chamba district. Dalhousie is a perfect hill station to spend a summer vacation. Located close to the Dhauladhar range, Dalhousie is nestled amidst snow clad mountains.
Here, I have designed a 2 day itinerary for Dalhousie. It will surely come handy for your next summer retreat.
Start the day by visiting the Dainkund Peak. Located near an air-force base, this peak gives you spectacular views of the himalayas. There is a temple located here which allegedly keeps away spirits from the peak. To reach the Dainkund peak, you need to trek a bit. If you take a cab, you will be dropped at an air-force base. From here, it is straight up in the whistling woods.
However, the trek is not that difficult. A stroll in the woods will help you reach the peak. Dainkund peak in Dalhousie is a must visit. It is located at a distance of 15 kms from the town.
