This is purely a British hill station which can be seen through the colonial sights and also the name of the place. It is on the name of a British governor back in the 19th century and hence is different from other hill stations of Himachal. The place is spread in 5 hills and has varied altitudes which make it vast to explore. The lush green vegetation with pine and oak trees are a delightful sight. The small-town Dalhousie sited in the lap of Himachal Pradesh is a piece of heaven for every one of the visitors. It brags of old-world appeal, entrancing natural beauty, pine-clad valleys, bloom meadows, quick streaming rivers, wonderful foggy mountains and probably the most exciting view on the planet. The air smells of the Scottish and Victorian design and the feel helps you to remember the faultless British flavours.
