Isolated by high mountain ranges, the valley of Chamba is noted for the magnificence of its scenery. The British Governor General, Lord Dalhousie, visiting this area around the middle of the 19th century for a quiet retreat, came upon a charming spot on a ridge overlooking the plains. This was to become the attractive little hill town that was named after him.

Set amidst thickly wooded hills, clothed in deodar and pine, Dalhousie has marvellous forest trails and picnic spots with splendid vistas over the Chamba Valley. A touch of the "Raj" still lingers in the little unspoilt town.
