Set over a number of hills, the quiet town of Dalhousie was established by the British in the 19th century as a summer resort town.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Bhalei Mata Temple and Garam Sadak. Get outdoors at Dainkund Peak and Moti Tibba. Step out of Dalhousie to go to Chamba and see Khajjiar Lake, which is approximately 1h 05 min away. There's more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Chamera Lake and take in nature's colorful creations at Rock Garden.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Dalhousie fast, fun, and easy.

Vadodara to Dalhousie is an approximately 7.5-hour combination of flight and taxi. You can also do a combination of train, flight, and taxi; or drive. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sun) so you can drive to Manali.

People visit Manali for a number of reasons, but all of them revolve around the landscape.
Step out of the city life by going to The Himalayan Trout Fish Farm and Friendship Peak. Explore hidden gems such as Spas and Siyali Mahadev Temple. And it doesn't end there: skim along the rocks with a canyoning and rapelling tour, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Ram Temple, appreciate the views at Solang Valley, and identify plant and animal life at Rani Nallah.
