To visit Dalhousie was my dream that I nurtured since long. A busy work life and other priorities deterred me from visiting this heavenly place. A three day holiday came as a blessing in disguise and my desire to visit Dalhousie found wings. Around 84 kilometers from Pathankot, this lovely hill station is located at an altitude of 8000 ft above sea level in the lap of Himachal. We were welcomed by a light shower of rains at Pathankot, from where we hired a taxi driven by Kishori Lal. (Way back in 2014 there was no direct bus service to Dalhousie. One had to hire a taxi or bus from Pathankot).
