Chamba


Uttarakhand is the heartland of the Himalayas. A wide expanse between the Himalayas in the North and the Shivalik range in the South, it offers the most breathtaking views of the mighty peaks; mist covered deep gorges and verdant valleys.
 
 At the doorstep of this heaven, on the foothills of the Himalayas lies Chamba. Unexplored, untouched, overlooking the snow-clad peaks on one side and offering a magnificent view of the valley on the other, about 60 km from Mussoorie is the small hill town of Chamba, Uttarakhand Chamba is at an altitude of 1676 m above sea level. An unspoilt territory and covered with lots of pine and deodar trees, Chamba offers you a never explored break. Unlike Mussoorie, the place is very quiet, serene and offers pictursque beauty.
 
 It is an excellent place to relax and enjoy and is just a drive away from the city blues. One can reach Chamba in about two hours from Rishikesh. After the submergence of old Tehri, Chamba is the fast-emerging tourist spot in Tehri Garhwal. The snow capped peaks of the Himalayas, the awe inspiring views of the green gorges and the enchanting valleys all around the river Bhagirathi will undoubtedly leave you spellbound, amidst rich apple orchards.
