The hill station of Dharamsala's reputation stems from its large community of exiled Tibetan Buddhists, including the Dalai Lama.
Escape the urban bustle at Triund Hill and Dal Lake. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Dharamsala: Wah Tea Estate (in Palampur) and Parasailing & Paragliding (in Bir). There's lots more to do: soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, get engrossed in the history at Tibetan Museum, browse the exhibits of Naam Art Gallery, and admire the sheer force of Bhagsu Waterfall.

Set over a number of hills, the quiet town of Dalhousie was established by the British in the 19th century as a summer resort town.
