Dalhousie has so many places which are really hard to cover in a day. If you are travelling to Dalhousie, make sure that you are coming here at least for three days, so that you can visit major destinations in and around Dalhousie properly. Since I was there for two days only, I missed out few places. If you are here for a short time, you should considering hiring a cab service for an entire day. That’s what I did. It somehow stretched my budget but I saved ample amount of time and hassle. The cab driver took me to some major destinations which you shouldn’t miss out while you are in Dalhousie. After visiting Dainkund Peak, we headed to Kalatop Dalhousie.

When I reached Kalatop, I was really feeling hungry. I roamed around for a while and searched for some place where I could sit and fill my belly with some really delicious meal. Though there were many restaurants around with amazing mountain views, I randomly reached a small rooftop café. I wanted to enjoy veg Maggi. The wind was too strong and tables were not able to hold it. Somehow, it was controlled. Kalatop Dalhousie is a famous view point and destination with pristine beauty. I had already a glimpse of the nature at Panchpula Waterfall.
The rooftop restaurant at Kalatop Dalhousie had some really jaw dropping views of nature. Misty clouds, blue sky, mountains covered with snow like cotton, everything was so soothing that I just wanted to see this all as long as I could. This scene and a plate of veg Maggi, what a perfect combination.
I ended up having two plates of Maggi, which was really finger licking delicious. After eating two plates of veg Maggi, I ordered a plate of pakora. Being honest, everything was truly delicious. The snacks actually added more beauty to the ambiance of this beautiful place. I spent around an hour at Kalatop Dalhousie before I headed to Khajjiar which was the last destination of the day.
