Dharamsala

(3.8/5 based on 8,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: nature, historic sites, sightseeing
The hill station of Dharamsala's reputation stems from its large community of exiled Tibetan Buddhists, including the Dalai Lama. Now a popular backpacker haunt, the city offers numerous Buddhist sites of interest, including the main monastery complex, shrines, and museums regarding Tibet and Tibetan Buddhism, as well as yoga, meditation, and healing schools. Aside from visits to the religious sites in town, a well-rounded Dharamsala itinerary can also include treks into the surrounding landscape of hills, lakes, and waterfalls.

Where to stay in Dharamsala

The development of Dharamsala from a simple hill station into a Buddhist retreat of international renown has left it with a diversity of accommodations. Hilltop yoga and spa retreats offer some of the most popular luxury options, with extensive views of the surrounding landscape and a wealth of additional facilities, including pools, restaurants, and bars. To the north of the town center, look at the circling Temple and Potala roads for a good variety of standard hotels, family-run guesthouses, and budget hostels. Staying in the town center to the south gives you fewer options and puts you a little farther from the main sights; still, these lodgings tend cater more to budget-conscious travelers.
