Dharamsala is a pristine green expanse ringed by the mist-shrouded Himalayas and a dense cover of oak, deodar, pine and conifers, it’s a secluded natural retreat. Dharamsala is renowned as the home of the Dalai Lama, the Tibetan Buddhist leader, and is a popular centre of Buddhism. Dotted with colourful monasteries, it offers tourists a great opportunity to meditate and soak in the serenity and tranquillity of the surroundings.
A major attraction is one of the most beautiful cricket stadiums in the world that has hosted a number of international and Indian Premier League (IPL) matches. Tourists can take nature walks through verdant landscapes or enjoy a picnic spread along the banks of the lakes here. Quaint churches nestled in groves and ancient temples greet you at most turns. The heart of Dharamsala beats in its bustling and vibrant markets that are a riot of colour and activity.
From exquisite multi-hued Tibetan Buddhist thangka paintings and miniature Buddha statues to singing bowls and Tibetan handicrafts, the bazaars have a fine selection on display. As you shop to your heart's content, don't forget to sample authentic Tibetan delicacies like thukpa (a soupy noodle dish), momos, golden fried baby corn, mittha (local sweet prepared with rice and raisins).
