This beautiful hill station of the Northern India offers you an exciting opportunity to go closer to nature. Some of the activities that you can enjoy here include
Trekking
For the adventurous souls, Dalhousie offers a great trail for trekking. The Khajjiar-Chamba-Khajjiar trail is a charismatic trail for admiring the nature. The trail is covered with lush green forests on both the sides and also offers you a chance to explore the local streams and the wide green stretches of the plain on its way.
Sightseeing
The best part of Dalhousie is that it has a perfect balance of everything. You see the high peaks than you see the broad plains, once you admire the greenery and then you get to see a completely barren hill. The evenings in Dalhousie are calm and sweeter to enjoy a walk in the countryside. The main road is a perfect place to sip the evening tea and enjoy the sun bidding goodbye to come up another day.
