Dalhousie is one of the finest hill stations in India from the point of beauty, climate and agreeable surroundings. It was founded when Lord Dalhousie was the Governor General of India, hence, it bears his name. It is known for the long levels of walk around its 5 hills (Bakrota, Balun, Kathlag, Patryn and Tehra). Khajjiar is a picturesque green alp set in the midst of handsome deodar trees attracting huge crowds to its serene charm. Chamba is a sharp contrast to Dalhousie, a colonial hill resort of British which embraces Indian heritage and archaeological set up. It includes famed temples, ancient shrines, weathered and stripped wood carved edifices.
