Dalhousie – brake pad free zone

Another hilltop retreat on the map of places to see– but there is nothing here! The most exciting thing about Dalhousie (pronounced Dalhodgie) is that our brakes failed on the way – in the Himalaya’s that is a bad thing.




the 5 hour drive on rough roads was another test of nerves and stomach with no brakes

pretty glacial valleys en route

Whilst the car was being fixed, we tried our best and made the most of it with a pretty little walk; a loop around the mountain enjoying Dalhousie’s best assets, the views – that is what you come here for. After pottering around in the Tibetan Markets, avoiding the dogs and snarling monkeys, we went with the flow and just passed time.

don't mess with the hungry monkeys

classic Himalayan views

The hotel was another unusual affair, number one rated trip advisor hotel out of dozens, it says a lot about the standard of hotels here, but the party and bonfire on the roof just above us kept us amused most of the night. Tomorrow to Amritsar as the first leg beck to Sandbach – butterflies are starting to flutter.
