Gandhi chowk (GPO) is the center of activities, shopping and restaurants, this is also the starting point of most treks. If you love to do shopping or trekking this is your area so don't wait just get set and go.
Away from the area where hotels are built, one has to walk for 15-20 minutes to reach the place. One can sit on the benches and enjoy the calm weather of the place. The place has a library for bibliophiles where one can relax and read about Dalhousie and a Tibetan market for shopping.
