If I say mountains do have some kind of charm of there own, probably I won't be wrong. As I took my very first breathe in "Dalhousie", it felt something #magical#peace#happiness.........
The best part is its super duper awesome weather. One will instantly fall in love with Dalhousie.
OMG!!! It's paradise for trekkers, a gateway for hikers; simply a perfect place to feel and experience serenity.
After beholding the mountains of Uttarkhand, J&K and Sikkim; this year it has to be the state of Himanchal Pradesh. The state being replete with beautiful places with beautiful landscape, it was truly a tough call to finalise on one town. After a lot of reasoning we finally finalised on "Dalhousie-khajjiar-Chamba". It was last week of September 2016. We board from Lucknow and reached Pathankot Cantt by train (almost 17 hrs journey)................ opps our train got late by 3 hrs. It was a hot afternoon in Pathankot. Further 3 hrs and we reached Dalhousie by around 5:30 pm.
By a local taxi we reached our Hotel-Satyam International. By the time we checked in our hotel it was dark and cold outside. As we were exhausted, we have early dinner and went to sleep.
We raise and shine early to see the sunrise, nothing less than a "MAGICAL" moment..... golden rays peeking through the mountains......simply spectacular. As compared to the previous day, the present day was bright and sunny.
Got ready and opt not to have breakfast at hotel, instead we headed to Kapoor Food Point (local dhaba) just adjacent to our hotel. This guy served us yummy yummy parathas, omelette with hot tea/coffee. Right after our breakfast we headed to Dainkund Peak (we hired a local taxi for all site-seeing , for all days).
