DHARAMSALA. It is located on a ridge of the Dhauladhar Range. The town up the hill from a height of 1.250 metres to 2,000 metres. The peaks of Dhauladhar rise above the town. Farbelow are the misty plains. The Dalai Lama resides at the Macleodganj, the upper Dharamsala. In the colourful Tibetan township are the newly built Gelugpa Monastery and a school of Tibetan culture.

Another popular holiday destination is the hill resort of Dharamsala, the headquarters of His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, the spiritual head of the Tibetans. Besides being an interesting town in itself, Dharamsala is also the starting point for many exciting treks and trips. Essentially a twin settlement, Dharamsala consists of the mainly Tibetan Upper Dharamsala and the more commercial Lower Dharamsala. There are however traces of the British presence here such as the church of St. John in the Wilderness where Lord Elgin was buried and suburbs called Mc Leodganj and Forsyth ganj.

This is hardly surprising, considering that Dharamsala was once a British hill station. Upper Dharamsala is dominated by the Buddhist temple with its prayer wheels, the Tsuglagkhang with its three images of Shakyamuni, Padmasambhava and Alokitesvara. The Dalai Lama’s residence, the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives, the Tibetan Secretariat and the Astro Medical Institute are all housed in Mc Leodganj. Accommodation and eating are no problem — there are a range of hotels to suit every budget and there are restaurants specialising in Tibetan, Chinese, Indian, Western and even Israeli fare.

The most popular trek is from Dharamsala to Chamba over the Indrahar Pass though other routes are also possible. From Dharamsala, one can move onto Palampur which with its verdantgreen tea gardens and pine and deodar forests, is a resort yet to be discovered by many tourists. Hang gliding, a new sport practised at Billing is fast making Palampur popular as it is considered to be one of the best places for this sport.
