The hill station of Dharamsala's reputation stems from its large community of exiled Tibetan Buddhists, including the Dalai Lama.
On the 23rd (Sun), take in the spiritual surroundings of Bhagsunath Temple, take in the dramatic scenery at Bhagsu Waterfall, and then take in the awesome beauty at Triund Hill. Keep things going the next day: relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of St. John, then contemplate the waterfront views at Dal Lake, and finally admire all the interesting features of Norbulingka Institute.
