An important yet unexplored hill town in the state of Himachal Pradesh, Dharamshala occupies a position in the lap of the Dauladar Mountains. Acres of sprawling pine and deodar forests surround Dharamshala. The city remains divided into Lower Dharamshala and Upper Dharamshala. The hill station of Dharamshala is one of those places that were founded and developed by the British to serve as summer retreats. It is due to this reason that you still find a number of colonial buildings, adding much to the overall beauty of the quaint hill station. Apart from that, it also serves as the home of the Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama, who arrived here in the early 1960s.
