What is the right duration for a visit to Dahousie?

Regardless of whom you go on the trip with, spending roughly 3-4 days in Dalhousie is quite long enough. While it is a quaint little town and it is very beauiful, there are not many things to do.

Therefore, an average but luxurious day in Dalhousie would cost around Rs.2500- Rs.3000.

Being a sleepy little village like town in the hills makes Dalhousie the perfect place for a honeymooning couple. The town retains some sort of colonial aura and that renders it a very quaint and surreal experience when you combine it with the natural beauty all around.

When does it snow in Dalhousie?

It snows in Dalhousie in the late winter months of December and mostly January. It's difficult to access all the places nearby when it is snowing though so it is a good idea to plan your trip carefully.

What is the best mode of transport for a trip to Dalhousie?

Since Dalhousie is a small town, walking is a viable option. That is only for enthusiasts though, the common practice is to get motorcycles or cars. Due to the temperature though, a car is a better idea than a bike.

What are the must do things in Dalhousie?

In terms of attractions, Dalhousie doesn't offer much.
