Dalhousie

Dalhousie is a quiet little hill station surrounded by five Himalayan hills that dominate tall and handsome deodar and oak trees. The forest trails nearby overlook vistas of wooded hills, water falls, springs and rivulets. The magnificent view of Chamba Valley and the inspiring snow clad peaks of Dhauladhar range fill the entire horizon here. The campsite is on Dalhousie - Khajjiar road, roughly six km before Khajjiar.

Hello!
I have always liked nature but ANALA has helped me to be close with nature and has helped to learn to stay away from luxuries and to love the nautre.
Trips with ANALA Outdoors have given me lovely memories. I have been to 4 himalayan trips with ANALA Outdoors but Dalhousie was one of my favourites. Everything in Dalhousie was wonderful! Dalhousie is known for its beauty but I think there is a lot more over there. Dalhousie has so much diversity!
We went for Bird-Watching with Charndresh Sir several times during the trip and I personally feel that those were the best times. The Night-Out was just perfect! I had never imagined to sleep under that beautiful sky, filled with stars! Other adventure activities were also very finely planned! Tree jumaring, rappelling, zip line had boosted up my confidence so much. I would like to thank all the staff members including our group leaders, Chandresh Sir and Arshad sir! Dalhousie was truly magical and the best trip!

Regards
Aditi Pareek

hello!

I have been going to many places from Anala since last few years and it has always been a fantastic experience. Anala is the only medium through which I get the opportunity to be in close with the nature, away from the hustling and bustling of the city and exploring the real beauty of the place.

 All the place that I have visited are perfect at  their place.I would give all the credits to Anala for setting up such a nice, pleasant camp site, making their best to serve such a tasty food, designing all the activities and schedule perfectly and the most important imbibing great values in me throughout the trip.

As usual I went to Dalhousie this year and it was my indelible experience there. I would like to thank Chandresh sir for conducting such a nice bird watching session. Apart from it I thoroughly enjoyed in the night out with the dark sky above and tall canopies around . I enjoyed all the activities[ rapplelling ,jumaring,zipline] and the group games. Lastly I would like to thank the whole Anala team and our group leaders, Chandresh sir and Arshad sir from the bottom of my heart for making all my trips memorable for me.

Regards,

Ashiti Patel

It was an amazing once in a lifetime experience. There were times I was near to giving up on trekking, but the Anala team and the fellow campers kept me going!!
And yeah I really did realize I am stronger than I think I am...
The first thing I missed after reaching home was the water of Dalhousie, the freshness it had is nowhere compared to the water in Surat
Thank you so much for letting my first experience be enjoyable starting from the train, the accommodation, the food, everything was the best!!!

Anala Outdoors,
    I attended your one of the most beautiful trips, which is the Himalayan Camp Dalhousie. It was very successful camp; and first of all I would like to thank all the instructors & the volunteers and specially Chandresh sir and Arshad sir to make us comfortable throughout the journey and also to make us laugh. It was a very memorable trip for because of the very cold & humming atmosphere and the most beautiful view of the snowy Himalayan range from the campsite. At first we were planning to visit some other place as there is no tourist spot other than Khajjiar. But here the fun was unlimited and I would also like to appreciate the food, as the first question from our parents was 'Jamvanu Kevu lagyu'.. We had a lot of fun there and all that credit goes to anala outdoors... I have made a very good strength after this camp and it's very long trekks... At last I would like to thank the team anala because if it would not be there then this beautiful and memorable trip won't exist.
