In the mid-nineteenth century, Dalhousie rose in the second string of hill stations that the British built in the region. Its location, at the western edge of the Dhauladhar mountains - which are a sub-system of the Himalaya - gave it a commanding position overlooking the plains of the Punjab. As the town grew, expectedly, it became a popular summer retreat for many families of the Punjab who preferred its easy lifestyle and relaxed ambience to the snooty social divides of Shimla. Officials and business families from Lahore, Europeans and a few Indians, would travel up for the summer months - and a couple of Dalhousieâs families go back to the townâs early days. With its ' old world charm ' and lingering echoes of the Raj, the town covers an area of about seventeen square kilometres.
Today's Dalhousie is still quite a quiet town and holds immense natural beauty where the thick woods are framed by magnificent snowpeaks. There is colonial architecture and a variety of sightseeing and some excellent walks. The town swings around the hills somewhat like an adventurous figure of eight; it also letâs fly a few limbs high and low. Tall stone revetments, made rather venerable by a variety of mosses, protect the roads. Just above them are shrubs and ferns and wild flowers. Then come the trees - oaks, cedars and the flowering rhododendrons. Below, the valley plunges down, in fits and starts - with both sharp drops and level patches of fields and houses. At the end of that long plunge, flows the river Ravi. And whenever the road takes a turn facing north, the spectacular mountain ranges swing right back for an unforgettable view.
