Entitled – Dehra Run. A Waterfall in the Hill District. 

Below the picture an inscription reads:

Dehra Run. – We take train from Delhi to Saharanpur, a day’s journey, and proceed thence by carriage to this popular hill station in five or six hours.

Dehra Dunn is the capital of the district of that name, and is prettily situated in the midst of a mountain valley, 2,300ft. above the sea level.

It has a population of about 19,000.

There are eleven tea plantations here, including one belonging to the Government; and green tea is produced in large quantities for Central Asia.

Dehra Dunn is a favourite residence for retired and invalid officers and their families; and the entire district was ceded to us by the Ghoorkas in 1815.

The approach to the first town, Mussoorie, is by way of Rajpore, a large native village at an elevation of 3,000ft.

The road hence to Mussoorie is exceedingly steep.

Still higher up is Jaranpani, where one sees the first houses of the European residents.

The hill stations of Mussoorie and Landour, the adjacent convalescent depot for British troops, are situated on one of the outer ranges of the Himalayas, which lie to the north of Dehra Dun.

If you buy an item and then see it relisted this is because we occasionally have more than one available, each page is
