If you're looking for a spiritual getaway that combines the magnificent natural beauty of the Himalayas with a rich cultural heritage, then Dharamshala holidays are just what you need. Perched in the lower Himalayas at a challenging altitude of 4,780 ft, Dharamshala is surrounded by mountains, lush valleys and forests, providing endless opportunities for hiking, cycling, horse riding and amazing photo opportunities. Dating back some 3,500 years, the Kangra District has a rich cultural heritage, with a number of temples, Buddhist monasteries and forts that all illustrate the long history of this region.
Dharamshala is the seat of spiritual learning in India, and is where the Dalai Lama has resided since he fled Tibet in 1959 after Chinese troops invaded his homeland. As such, much of Dharamshala's culture revolves around Buddhism and Tibetan traditions. Dharamshala holidays offer a humbling opportunity to learn about the Dalai Lama’s teachings and, if you’re visiting when he is there, perhaps even meet him.
