Dharamshala, Himachal


Dharamshala is truly known as the Scotland of India, Dharamshala has some of the most spectacular views of the Dhauladhar snowline and age-old monasteries, dotting the wooded landscape. Also a sacred place for Tibetans, because His Holiness the Dalai Lama lives here, Dharamsala is a spiritual paradise, where Buddhism prevails and the Dalai Lama is larger than life. At once earthy and surreal, Lower Dharamsala is a busy commercial center, while Upper Dharamsala with its suburbs of McLeodganj and Forsythganj, retains a British flavor and colonial lifestyle.

McLeodganj is also where the Tibetans live amid the backdrop of the Dhauladhar range. An beautiful hill station, while the scent of pine mingled with that of incense infiltrates ones senses, it is an invigorating experience that cleanses both the mind and the soul.
