    • Trip to Dalhousie

      Not too happy with the booking First the good parts: 1. Well-arranged trips, ample time to go around for seeing different places 2. Good hotels in Shimla, Manali, and Dalhousie. The views were amazing from all these hotels, and so were the rooms and the service. Special mention about the hotel in Dalhousie, beautiful place, amazing views and awesome food. The parents were very happy. 3. The driver was quite well mannered and had equally good driving skills Not so good and improvement areas: 1. The driver had very bad navigational skills, was uncooperative, especially when it came to asking for directions in a new place. It was strange as you would expect to get someone who will have good knowledge about the place where he goes almost regularly 2. This trip was customized which is why a lot of responsibility rested with the driver who was either unhelpful when it came to assisting or suggesting something to do, or was unaware of most of the things 3. The hotel in Chandigarh was unhygienic, one of the rooms had cockroaches roaming around, another had bedbugs and the third room was damp and smelled as if it always remains shut. My father had to stay up the entire night because of bed-bug bites 4. The hotel in Dharamshala was again old, dirty and unhygienic too. They tried to pass-off the water from the dish-cleaning area as drinking water. Rooms were shabby, blankets were worn out and dirty, furnishings were very old and shabbily kept. Not something you expect from an apparent 3 star hotel

    • Trip to Dalhousie

      Package Cost me Rs 24,000/- Day 1:I was Travelling from Jammu ,The internet service was not available ,the remaining payment I had to be done by Cash mode after reaching the hotel ,It was very frustrating Night 1 :Horrible experience ,Hotel has been changed ,Skylark to some local Rosewood hotel (stay was OK but dinner we had outside) Day2: breakfast has less option ,opted for Paratha (very Bad but was hungry)but me and my wife vomited during Journey ,Places :More religious places chamunda devi,brijeshwari temple has been covered instead of Natural sight seeing,however places were nice,Kangra fort was awesome. Cab service was good. Night 2:Dinner was worst ,we are unable to eat it ,badly cooked and rotten smell is coming out.Beds were comfortable but room was dirty and not properly cleaned stained were there. Day 3:transfer to Dhramshala to Dalhousie ,in between we visited Monastery ,Dalai Lama was addressing there.It was heartfelt experience. reached to Banikhet near by Dalhousie in Hotel Grand Dalhousie.It is budget hotel Staying was good.The road trip from Dharamshala /mcleodganj to Banikhet was awesome but the nature is fragile there ,not recommend to visit during rainy season as frequent landslide occur. Night3: Dinner was good in first night as a group of student visited there to stay. Day4:Visited Dalhousie church,KhajjiarThe best place in my journey,very awesome weather,picturesque ,views and many more to be refreshed.Khajjiar is also a good picnic spot.Afterwards we went to Chamba laxmi narayan temple,which is inside city,Dalhousie to chamba to Banikhet road is dangerous.However cab driver Sameer was excellent in his work. Night 5:we were Happy to had good trip.But again Food/Dinner in grand Dalhousie was worst(I mean it). Day 6: Early Morning we left for Pathankot. The Bad Parts are : 1.unexpectedly telling me to pay the remaining bill either by Cash or Online.while I was coming from Jammu where there were not internet service. 2.Changing of Hotel Skylark to some not so good hotel Rosewood (staying was Okay but Food was literally worst).Beware if you had bad food it can ruin your trip. 3. Dharmshala/Mcleodganj (more of religious kind,temple visit) instead of more historical places ,museum,sight seeing 4.hotel was in Banikhet not in Dalhousie,the weather & views in Dalhousie is awesome and not same as Banikhet. 5.Food was worst. The Good Parts: 1.The cab/Private vehicle service was very good,comfortable.Driver was experienced,drives smoothly ,well mannered ,gentleman and assisted us where he can. 2.Dalhousie ,Khajjiar ,Monastery ,Kangra Fort visits are memorable part. 3.Temple visit were also fine but not so exciting. 4.Staying was normal,as these are budget hotels. 5.The hilly road drive was awesome. Note:However ,I felt that I would have chosen government approved & 3 star or above rated hotels ,not the travel triangle or other website rated 3 star hotels for comfortable STAYING/SLEEPS and for quality FOOD.

    FAQ's of Dalhousie

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    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.

    In terms of attractions, Dalhousie doesn't offer much. The nearby sites of Khajjiar and Chamba are must visits when staying in Dalhousie and so are the markets and the malls that the town was built around back in the day. Obviously, going to Dainkund is also a priority and there a few beautiful churches around the town as well.

    There are rooms available in Dalhousie from upwards of Rs.1000- Rs.8000. A fairly luxurious room on an average would cost roughly Rs.4000 a night and an average to decent meal costs in the range of Rs. 250- Rs.350. Therefore, an average but luxurious day in Dalhousie would cost around Rs.2500- Rs.3000.

    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. So 3-4 idyllic days spent in this small town with the beautiful scenery should be good enough that include visits to Khajjiar and Chamba.

    Dalhousie does not have many hospitals, the main hospitals in the town are the Civil Hospital and the Military Hospital in the Cantonment area. Civil Hospital is on Subhash Chowk Road. The number for Civil Hospital is +91-1899-242125 and the ambulance number is 108.

    The best time to visit Dalhousie has to be the summer months of March to May. The summer months are refreshingly cool here and it is a welcome escape from the heat. However, this is also peak season for tourism and it is quite crowded at this time. Winter, of course, is excellent for those who enjoy snowfall.
