All about the city :
Yet another worthy territory of beautiful state of Himachal Pradesh is Dalhousie, a hill station named after the British Governor General of India Lord Dalhousie. Sprawling on five hills that range in height from 1,525m to 2,378m this vintage destination has cradled well all that came to it in the course of time viz the colonial impression, the ancient culture and the beautiful surroundings. Although it does not offer much for sightseeing but it is an idyllic destination for those who fancy a laid back holiday watching the sun going down and rising again; listening to the chirping of birds and gurgling of streams; spending hours appreciating the aroma & colour of the flowers or simply getting inspired by the mighty Himalayas. The environs of Dalhousie, however, include some interesting sightseeing places. Rambling around this fashionable yet quite and peaceful place is the best way to absorb the maximum of this hill town.
