Dalhousie is a hill station in Chamba district, in the northern state of Himachal Pradesh, India. It is situated on 5 hills and has an elevation of 1,970 metres above sea level
Lord Dalhousie was drawn to this region in 1854 because of its peaceful atmosphere and pleasant climate. Eventually, the British acquired five hills -Kathalagh, Potreyn, Terah (or Moti Tibba), Bakrota and Bhangora from the ruler of Chamba State for developing the area as a retreat. In return, his taxes were reduced. Soon it became a popular resort for Englishmen, military officials and soldiers to escape the scorching summers of the plains.
