Dalhousie a hill station, is spread over five famous hills which are Balun, Kathlog, Petreyn, Tehra and Bakrota. During Monsoon this beautiful hill station, endowed a spectacular picturesque meadow valley filled with mist and flowers. How do i know all this, the answer is I visited this heaven on Earth last year in
the month of July. Situated on the outer slopes of the Dhauladhar range,Dalhousie did prove to be an ideal gateway form the hustle bustle of daily life. We reached on a rainy night at hotel dalhousie heights, a good accommodation and feasible too. My family enjoyed a stay of 5 days in the town.
My first day was spent with my my loving family indoors, why because it was raining and my children were just going flabbergastic while playing in the rain. In the evening i had a die to feast that included of madhra, chukhchilli sauce,lemon juice and NON
veg. Next morning we went to visit Dainkund Peak, as it had rained the previous night the wet wooded slopes with a plethora of pine and deodar trees took our breath away. The singing peak gives a view
of three famous rivers Beas, Ravi and Chenab. On the way we ate the famous himachali food and drank the famous kangra tea. Third day we visited 150 years old famous Lakshmi Narayan Temple and my wife went on a shopping spree at Gandhi Chowk, after that i went to pay my respect in St. John’s Church. Forth day i went see St. Andrew’s Church is situated at Baloon in the afternoon. After that all we did was shopping, eating, playing in the rain and yes it was cold.
Today when my wife flaunt that beautiful Chamba Shawl on occasions, or when my friend come over and praise wood carved table, we genuinely smile in our hearts and remember a special trip to Dalhousie.
