In the month of march, we visited this beautiful hill station in Himachal – Dalhousie. During the visit we stayed in Rashmi Villa which is clearly visible from surrounding hills of Dalhousie. When you are driving from Pathankot, you start seeing this place when you are 20 kilometers away from Dalhousie town. The huge flag installed in front of it an indicator. It’s a beautifully located place around Dalhousie hills and near to famous Dalhousie Public School. This Photo Journey shares some of the views we experienced during our 3 days stay at Rashmi Villa.
Here is the photograph of flag installed at Rashmi Villa. Dalhousie came in national news because of this flag. Dalhousie Public school also has a MIG-21 and soon they will be having a battle tank T-54.
There is a nice ground around this flag and kids love playing around it. Rashmi Villa is a very old building in the campus of Dalhousie Public School and maintained by school authorities.
It was continuously raining when we were in Dalhousie and we really enjoyed the hide-n-seek of clouds around us. Many times these clouds visited us at Rashmi Villa to welcome in Dalhousie.
Just on the left hand side, there are multiple layers of hills. These hills were having snow where we visited Dalhouise. More than snow, I really liked these beautiful houses having similar architecture and aligned symmetrically on this mountain. We were wondering about the people living on this hill. They must be getting far better views of surrounding and probably they would have an opportunity to look at other side of the hill from top. Khajjiar, Chamba and Bharmour are on the other side this hill. These portions are not visible from Rashmi Villa. Rashmi Villa is facing towards hills leading towards Pathankot and Ravi river.
You can see numerous villages on surrounding hills and I love these roofs of Himachali houses. Most of these houses have vibrant and multicolored shades in a unique way.
Rashmi Villa is mainly surrounded by hills which have various sub-campuses of Dalhousie Public School. The MIG-21 is directly visible on the right side and river Ravi offers various shades during different time of the day. Dalhousie had got snowfall a week back, when we visited the town. There were some remains of the snow around Rashmi Villa as well. But most of the surrounding hills were white. Pir Pnajal mountain range in above photograph looks amazing. And the view of these hills from Gandhi Chowk is brilliant.
The view of Ravi River from Rashmi Villa is my favorite. Every morning and evening I used to stand near the national flag to experience the colors of Ravi River. I wanted to see the river during sunset or sunrise, but hazy weather didn’t allow me to even see the river during that time. I am sure that river must be looking stunning during clear days. Hope to be there soon and enjoy those brilliant landscapes again.
