Dharamsala Tours and Travels

About Dharamsala

Dharamsala is located in the Kangra Valley, in the Dhauladhar Mountains in the state of Himachal Pradesh. It is synonymous with the Dalai Lama and Tibetan Government in Exile and starting point of some exhilarating treks into the high Himalayas. The actual headquarters is about 4km above Dharamsala at Gangchen Kyishong, whilst most visitors head to McLeod Ganj (Upper Dharamsala), strung along a ridge 10km above Dharamsala. Dharamsala is of little interest to visitors, except perhaps the colourful Kotwali Bazaar at the foot of the roads leading to McLeod Ganj and the Museum of Kangra.
