Chamba : Queen of Valley's

Chamba (Devanagari:चंबा) is a town and a nagar panchayat in Tehri Garhwal district in the state of Uttarakhand, India.

It is situated at the junction of roads leading from Mussoorie, Rishikesh, Tehri Dam/ Lake and New Tehri.

Its nearby tourist places are Dhanaulti, Surkanda Devi Temple, Ranichauri, New Tehri, and Kanatal, midway through Chamba-Dhanaulti road.

About 50 km from Mussoorie is the small hill town of Chamba, Uttaranchal. Chamba is yet another of those destinations which still stand oblivious to most tourists and therefore unspoilt and fresh like a daisy for the lucky few who venture out seeking new places to explore and enjoy Chamba is at an altitude of 1600 mt above sea level.

Again really unspoilt and with lot of pines and deodar and good views. Unlike Mussoorie, the place is very quiet and picturesque and an excellent place to relax to wash your city blues. One can reach Chamba in about 7-8 hrs from Delhi via Hardwar, Rishikesh and Narendranagar (290 km).

One can also combine stay at Chamba with one at Mussoorie or Dhanolti and reach via Dehradun, Haridwar, Mussoorie and Dhanolti.
