Dalhousie is a gateway to the ancient Chamba Hill State, now Chamba District of Himachal Pradesh, India. This hill region is a repository of ancient Hindu Culture, art, temples and handicrafts preserved under the longest running single dynastry. The Pangi Valley is remote and highly inaccessible most of the year. It is located between the Pir Panjal and the Greater Himalayan ranges. It is home to Pangwal and Bhot tribes. Dalhousies natural beauty, invigorating air, warm sunshine and quiet surroundings add enchantment to its level walks and treks amidst the dense forests. Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore is supposed to have written his first poem here and Dalhousie still remains a muse for artists.
