Dalhousie

Set over a number of hills, the quiet town of Dalhousie was established by the British in the 19th century as a summer resort town.
You've now added St. John's Church to your itinerary. Take a break from the city and head to Khajjiar Lake and Chamera Lake. Change things up with a short trip to Kalatop Wildlife Sanctuary in Chamba (about 44 minutes away). There's still lots to do: take in the awesome beauty at Dainkund Peak, look for all kinds of wild species at Panjpulla, don't miss a visit to Sach Pass, and trek along Garam Sadak.

Plan my Dalhousie trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Chennai to Dalhousie is an approximately 9.5-hour combination of flight and taxi. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and bus. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Fri) to allow time to drive to Dharamsala.
