The hill station of Dharamsala's reputation stems from its large community of exiled Tibetan Buddhists, including the Dalai Lama.

There's much more to do: soothe aching muscles at Raj Yoga School, take in the spiritual surroundings of Tushita Meditation Centre, admire the landmark architecture of Nechung Monastery, and browse the range of quality goods at Kushi Boutique.
