About Dalhousie

Dalhousie is one of the most beautiful destinations in Himachal Pradesh set on five distinct hills; Kathlog, Porteyn, Tehra, Bakrota and Balun spread over an area of 13 sq. km. These 5 hills are part of the Dhauladhar range. These hills came under the Raja of Chamba during the British era, however, British were extremely enticed by the place and wanted to build a hospital in this place. In 1853, Raja handed over the four hills except the Balun Hill to the British Empire on which a Sanatorium was build which was named after the then Governor General of India, Lord Dalhousie. Eventually the British acquired the fifth hill, Balun, in 1866. Although the weather in Dalhousie is very cold during winters, but those who wish to enjoy activities should plan their trip in winters. The rest may enjoy the tour best during summers.
