Dharamsala ©
The hill station of Dharamsala's reputation stems from its large community of exiled Tibetan Buddhists, including the Dalai Lama.
For shopping fun, head to Thankas and Gifts or Maximus Mall. Dalai Lama Temple Complex and Church of St. John are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Venture out of the city with trips to Bundlamata Temple (in Palampur) and Kangra (Mata Brajeshwari Devi & Chamunda Devi Temple of Devi). There's lots more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Triund Hill, take in the spiritual surroundings of Namgyalma Stupa, explore and take pictures at Norbulingka Institute, and appreciate the views at Kangra Valley.
