21Dharmashala (1830 m) is perched on the high slopes in the upper region of Kangra Valley against the backdrop of dramatic Dhauladhar mountains. Originally a little hill resort built by the British, Dharamsala rambles up in levels to very near the snow line. Dharams3wala is the main hill station in the Kangra Valley - a fertile, undulating valley, lying between the gentle Shivalik Hills and the foothills of the mighty Dhauladhars - a valley noted for the beauty of its scenery - lush terraces, wooded hills, manicured tea gardens and sparkling streams.

 

McLeodganj is best known as the headquarters of the Tibetan Government in Exile and home of the 14th Dalai 10Lama, Tenzin Gyatso. The Tibetan settlement here is a delightful example of their agreeable nature. With heavy tourist traffic, Dharamsala is quite cosmopolitan in character. However, a certain decorum needs to be observed while visiting Buddhist shrines. Walk clockwise around shrines and stupas and on the left-hand side inside monasteries. Buddhist monasteries are open to all.
