Everywhere you look, you will see scenic views that will instil a deep sense of calm and well-being into you, banishing anxiety and leaving behind the happiness that only nature’s bounty can give. The drive up to Dalhousie is a pleasant one. Seas of pines cover the slopes, scenting the air with their spicy fragrance and shedding long flickering shadows which dance around with the soft mountain sunlight.

The trek up Dainkund Peak is especially popular because it reveals beautiful vistas of the undulating mountains and leads right up to the quaint Pholani Devi Temple. One of the best things to do in Dalhousie is trekking to Kalatop Wildlife Sanctuary which is also a wonderful experience. Khajjiar Lake, Ganji Pahari, Panchpula, Sach Pass and Chamera Dam are some other trek destinations around the hill station. Serious trekkers can combine all the great locations around Dalhousie into a multi-day trek while people looking for a relaxed trekking experience can simply tackle all places one at a time.

St. Francis' Church and St. John's Church, two British era churches in Dalhousie, still retain their grandiloquent but soothing air while the restaurants and cafes around the town are serene places to relax in while you enjoy the sweeping views with a cup of hot tea. The Garam Sadak is the perfect place wherein to indulge in some shopping and snacking in Dalhousie.
