a spiritual dwelling
Dharamsala (Dharamshala), in Himachal Pradesh, is a solitary natural retreat surrounded by the mist-shrouded Himalayas with a dense cover of oak, deodar, pine, and conifers. Its rocky terrain is suitable for adventure sports like trekking, paragliding, and mountain climbing, while its unspoiled beauty will leave you speechless. A mesmerising voyage on the lovely miniature train through stunning scenery is an added bonus.
Dharamsala is a popular Buddhist centre and is known as the home of the Dalai Lama, the Tibetan Buddhist leader. It is dotted with colourful monasteries and provides visitors with a wonderful opportunity to meditate and enjoy the quiet and tranquilly of the surroundings. One of the most beautiful cricket venues in the world, which has hosted a number of international and Indian Premier League (IPL) matches, is a key attraction.
Tourists can go on nature treks through lush landscapes or relax with a picnic on the banks of the lakes. At almost every turn, you’ll be greeted by charming churches set amid forests and old temples.
