Himalayan range covers the entire northern part of India, nestling five major states of the country within it. The ancient Indian pilgrims who have travelled in these mountains since time immemorial coined a Sanskrit word for the Himalayas meaning . Abode of Snow.
Some of the reasons why people have been so fascinated by the Indian Himalayas is because of the Hindu pilgrim routes, the low valleys that abruptly rise up in high mountain ranges, the lovely trekking hikes, densely forested areas lying just a mountain range away from barren cold deserts, and the lovely people of the mountains with their unique hospitable lifestyles. dalhousie, is one of the worldest finest hillstations to visit.
Dalhousie is a quiet town, with a sense of enchantment. This hill station spreads over five low-level hills at the western edge of the Dhauladhar range, just east of the Ravi River. The picturesque town is interspersed with the colonial-era buildings, low roofed stalls and hotels. The pine-covered slopes around it are intersected with paths and treks, which are ideal for short undemanding walks.The gateway to the Chamba Valley, this colonial town was established in 1854 by the British governor-general Lord Dalhousie. Covering an area of 14 sq.-km and surrounded by alpine vegetation, Dalhausie has charming architecture and panoramic views of both plains and the whitecapped views of the mountainous ranges.

Snow capped slopes of auli are flanked by all, dense deodar forest which cuts wind velocity to the minimum 16 kms. From Joshimath on the Badrinath route, Auli offers a 180 panoramic view of Himalayan peaks like the Nanda devi (7,817mts.) Kamet (7,756 mts.) Mana Parvat (7,273 mts.) And Dunagiri (7,066 mts.) seemingly only a snow ball thrown away.
To attract attention, skiing festivals are also conducted at Auli. These now include the national championships in the months of February and March, organised by the Winter Games Federation Of India. While skiing is the chief attraction at Auli, there are other attraction like cable car rides and rope lifts, or spend the day outdoors building snowmen, or having snowball fights
The Himalayas shone in the twilight sun. The valley below bore a clean virginal look as numerous waterfalls gushed downwards to form gurgling brooks. The intoxicating scent of pine filled the air.Standing atop a hill surrounded by coniferous forests, with all its olde worlde charm, this sylvan retreat offers an ineresting mix of hill and military cultures. Welcome to ranikhet.--the queen' field. This place gives a breathtaking and mesmerizing view of the majestic Himalayas and the Nanda Devi group of peaks.Ranikhet usually has a pleasant climate. But be it rain, sun or snow, every season has its charm here and this makes it an all-season destination.It is situated at a distance of 365 kms from New-delhi. Blessed with a healthy climate, its magnetic charm attracts tourists all the year round. It is a haven for bird watchers and visitors who wish to spend their holidays in solitude.Ranikhet is a place which has preserved its virginity and pristine charm. The sweep of Himalayan range visible from here is arguably the largest available from any place. It is a pure heaven 6000 feet above the sea level, away from the bustling lifestyle of city life. In Ranikhet, nature’s beauty overwhelms with its sheer abundance. Majestic snow peaks glisten in the sun. Wind whistle through the pine and towering deodar trees, rustling leaves in their trail. Pathways lead you to a panoramic view of the mighty Himalayas that spell wonderment. now,i would like to share some travel pages about ranikhet from my personal diary.
"The ethereal beauty with a majestic deodhar (perhaps the first on the 9 hour drive from Delhi) to our left welcomes us in. Since the time the Britishers discovered this celestial piece of earth to the outside world, the ambience of the place seems almost unchanged. Norman Troupe, who built his homestead, Holm Farm, here, would probably agree, a 130 years later. His estate, now converted into a heritage hotel, maintaining its olde worlde charm, still stands atop a hill surrounded by coniferous forests.Aah, no hustle-bustle of a busy hill station. No touts offering the best accommodation bargain in town, or cajoling us to book a sightseeing tour for the morrow, or offering to escort us to ‘sunset point’ or ‘himalayan point’ in the evening. When did you need to hold another hand to discover nature in all its purity and grandeur? I don’t want this 14 km drive from Ranikhet to Majhkhali, to end. All thoughts of reaching our destination before dark vanish. Had we not already ‘arrived’?My eyes rove through pines ringing verdant meadows (to later discover that it is a golf course), wooded slopes of stately deodhars standing sentinel to the winding mountain road. As the car negotiates a bend, a silver streak hits the sky. With a sharp intake of breath I slowly brake, bringing the vehicle to a smooth stop, almost guilty for the noise the engine was making.The sun, slowly turning orange, slips from behind the clouds down towards the last leg of its journey for the day, saying goodbye with a splash of colors across the sky. As the seconds pass (or stand still?) the emotions of the Sun through the day are reflected on the white and blue canvas - silver, orange, grey - slipping in and between tufts of clouds, its rays streaking through the pine trees, calling to the birds to return home. Timelessness and creativity, new meanings are reborn; myriad emotions, changing, expressed and reflected with each passing moment – the pines, deodhars, oaks, tiny mountain flowers, the jungle babbler, the undulating hills, the tree line, soothing breezes, all juxtaposed perfectly. I realize, my furiously beating heart has settled to a trance at this discovery (setting suns have become a ‘discovery’ in the new millennium).The romance of Ranikhet keeps unfolding.As dusk mingles into the evening, the star spangled sky entices us to sit out with our favourite sundowners. Lounging on the restaurant balcony, the 270 degree view of the Himalayas – the king of the mountains – is ever so mesmerizing. Thank you, city stresses, that I find all this so very magical.
EACH DAY IS A CHANCE TO INVEST IN LIFE; A CHANCE TO RENEW YOURSELF. TO SHED YESTERDAY'S SKIN.
TO UNBURDEN YOURSELF.TO GET RID OF YESTERDAY'S HURT.BE GLAD OF LIFE EACH DAY AS IT GIVES YOU A CHANCE TO WORK, LOVE AND PLAY; TO LOOK AT THE SUN. AND THEN WHEN THE SUN SETS DON'T CRY.THE TEARS WILL MAKE YOU MISS THE BEAUTY OF THE STARS.
LIFE MOVES ON AND IF YOU DON'T STOP AND LOOK AT THE WONDERS ALREADY PRESENT IN YOUR LIFE, YOU WILL MISS LIFE ALTOGETHER.
THINK OF BIG THOUGHTS BUT RELISH THE SMALL JOYS LIFE OFFERS YOU EACH DAY. MAY BE IT?S AS SIMPLE AS SMILING AT SOMEONE. FOR THAT COULD BE THE LAST DAY OF LIFE. FOR YOU AND OF FOR HER.
A SMALL GENUINE ACT FROM YOU WILL COST YOU NOTHING BUT IT COULD MEAN EVERYTHING TO SOMEBODY THAT DAY. LIFE IS A SUCCESSION OF MOMENTS. LIFE HAS NO ROMANCE WITHOUT RISK. ANY ACTION CARRIES SOME AMOUNT OF RISK, MAY BE LESS OR MORE, BUT THE ELEMENT OF RISK IS ALWAYS PRESENT.
IF THERE IS NO WIND, ROW. MAKE THINGS HAPPEN RATHER THAN LET THINGS HAPPEN. ONE CAN GIVE NOTHING WHATSOEVER WITHOUT GIVING ONESELF, RISKING ONESELF. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN LIFE IS NOT WHAT YOU GET BUT WHAT YOU GIVE.
IF YOU ARE NOT ENJOYING THIS JOURNEY OF LIFE, FOR SURE YOU WOUN'T ENJOY THE DESTINATION. IT WILL BECOME A MOMENT TO DREAD, NOT A MOMENT YOU CAN ACTUALLY LOOK FORWARD TO. IT'S NOT WHAT HAPPENS THAT DETERMINES OUR FUTURE, BUT WHAT YOU DO ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS THAT COUNTS.
MAKE THE MOST OF LIFE. EARN ALL THAT YOU CAN, SAVE ALL YOU CAN, AND GIVE ALL THAT YOU CAN.
ALTHOUGH GREED COMES FROM THE DESIRE TO OBTAIN SOMETHING, IT'S NOT SATISFIED BY OBTAINING. THE TRUE ANTIDOTE OF GREED IS CONTENTMENT. TAKE YOURSELF LESS SERIOUSLY.
CONQUER THE MIND AND YOU CONQUER THE WORLD. LOOKING BACK STRAINS YOUR NECK MUSCLES. SIMILARLY, LIVING IN THE PAST STRAINS YOUR LIFE. DON'T DWELL ON THE PAST, HAVE FAITH IN YOURSELF AND YOU WILL HAVE FAITH IN OTHERS. FULFILL YOUR DESTINY. REMEMBER, NO ONE CAN MAKE YOU UNHAPPY WITHOUT YOUR CONSENT.
THE WAY YOU COPE WITH LIFE IS WHAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE. EVEN PEACE OF MIND IS NOT THE ABSENCE OF CONFLICT BUT THE ABILITY TO COPE WITH IT. YOU HAVE TO REACH OUT TO OTHER PEOPLE. THAT WILL TEACH YOU TO FORGIVE PEOPLE AND ALSO FORGIVE YOURSELF.
FORGIVENESS MEANS LETTING GO OF THE PAST. COMPASSION IS ABOUT STEPPING OUTSIDE YOURSELF. A KIND OF COMPASSIONATE ACT IS OFTEN IT?S OWN REWARD. LIVE YOUR LIFE WITHOUT COMPLAINING, JUST LIKE THE TREE.
WE CANNOT STOP SUFFERING IN THE WORLD. BUT WE CAN STOP IT IN OUR MIND, PROVIDED YOU KNOW YOUR MIND, WHICH IS THE SOURCE OF NEGATIVE THOUGHTS. ONLY YOU CAN DOCTOR YOUR MIND.
YOUR HAPPINESS IS DEPENDENT ON CONSISTENCY. WHEN YOU EXPERIENCE INCONSISTENCY, YOU EXPERIENCE DISAPPOINTMENTS, RESENTMENTS AND SELF-PITY, GUILT AND GRIEF.
LEARN TO BE FREE, LEARN TO BE JOYOUS. LEARN TO LET GO IF SOMEONE PASSES AWAY, LEARN TO FORGIVE YOURSELF AND OTHERS. ONCE YOU ARE FREE, THE FEAR OF DEATH WILL TROUBLE YOU NO LONGER. GOD BLESS YOU. DO WRITE TO ME, IF YOU WANT TO SHARE ANYTHING. BYE.
