Brief of Dharamshala

Dharamshala is a city in the upper reaches of the Kangra Valley and is surrounded by dense coniferous forest consisting mainly of stately Deodars. The suburbs of the town includes — McLeod Ganj, Bhagsu Nath, Forsyth Ganj, Naddi, Kotwali Bazaar (the main market of the town), Kaccheri Adda (government offices such as the court, police, post etc.), Dari, Ramnagar, Sidhpur and Sidhbari (where the Karmapa Lama is based)

The village of McLeod Ganj lying in the upper reaches is known worldwide for the presence of the Tenzin Gyatso. On 29 April 1959, the 14th Dalai Lama established the Tibetan exile administration in the north Indian hill station of Mussoorie. In May 1960, the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) was moved to Dharamsala.

Dharamsala is the centre of the Tibetan exile world in India. Following the 1959 Tibetan uprising there was an influx of Tibetan refugees who followed the 14th Dalai Lama. His presence and the Tibetan population has made Dharamshala a popular destination for Indian and foreign tourists, including students studying Tibet. One of the main attractions of Dharamsala is Triund hill. Jewel of Dharamsala, Triund is one day trek at the upper reaches of Mcleod Ganj, located at a distance of about 9 kilometres from McLeod Ganj.

Other activities available in Dharamshala  and nearby areas

Hiking and Trekking in Dharamsala, McleodGanj

Easy day-hikes or overnights abound in the area and most begin in the village of Dharamkot, a short walk from the center of McLeod Ganj. No guides are required for the small hikes, which, though strenuous due to altitude, are all on well-marked paths. One short hike will take you to Bhagsu–a popular local site with waterfall, Bhagsunag Falls. Near the waterfall, there are retreat caves, frequented by monks. Take care not to disturb them in their meditations.

A longer, more strenuous hike (about 3 miles one-way) begins at the Mountaineering Center and will take you up into the mountains to Triund, where the views of the Dhauladhar peaks are amazing. You will probably pass monks and villagers on the path, which is as much a thoroughfare as a trekking route. There is a small café near Triund and a resthouse for camping. Triund is also the beginning for longer treks.

The bridle path from McLeod Ganj to Dharamsala is also a good, if long, walk, and you will probably pass many villagers who use the route to get from Dharamsala to the Dalai Lama’s temple for services.

The hike to Dal Lake takes only about an hour through the Tibetan Children’s Village, The location is nice

 

Rock Climbing

Though many people are not aware of it, the quaint town of Dharamshala offers many opportunities for rock climbing sport as well. One of the most popular trails for rock climbing is Dharamsala-Nayagroeon, set in a remote and largely uncharted area of the Himalayas. Then, you can also go over the ridges of the Dhauladhar range as well.

 

Angling & Fishing

There are a number of small rivers and streams in the area around Dharamsala. Majority of them provide visitors with an opportunity to indulge in angling and fishing. Among the most popular stretches for fishing is the 20-km stretch of the river Beas, between Nadaun and the Pong Dam. Here, you will find the Mahaseer in ample quantity.

Weather in Dharamsala, McleodGanj

The best times for travel to Dharamsala and McLeodGanj are March through June and October —November. Winter is not miserable, but as you will be doing a lot of walking, it is important to bring good winter boots and warms clothes. Monsoon season begins in July, and while it’s rainy and humid, it’s still not a bad time to be there. Just be prepared to get wet–really wet.

The costing for the package EX Delhi – (Delhi – Dharamshala – Delhi) for a group of 7 – 10 guest minimum is USD 820.72 per person of 7days 6 nights.
