Hill Station - Dhanaulti

Dhanaulti driveLocated on the Mussoorie-Chamba track, Dhanaulti is the launching point for numerous treks into the snow-capped Himalayas, especially to the Tehri region of Garhwal.

At an altitude of 2286 m , it is a woody paradise. It is work like a balm for weary souls in search of peace and quiet. Dhanaulti lies on a ridge at an altitude of 2286 m. Caressed by a bracing mountain zephyr, this hill station is just ideal for long walks up shady slopes or quiet tête-à-têtes in grassy meadows.
