Dharamshala - the second winter capital of Himachal Pradesh, the destination where adventure meets spirituality. Though, it is a well known tourist spot in Himachal Pradesh like Shimla, Manali, etc, it provides us something for which we all are lost today. That is the inner peace of our soul. The only peaceful place among all the hill stations, Mcleodganj, also known as "Little Lhasa", is a suburb in Dharamshala. It is an ideal place for those who are seeking love for adventure, trekking, yoga, meditation, cooking classes, musical instruments, monasteries, monks, Buddhism or just a weekend gateway to relax and chill.
In this blog, I will take you through my recent experience of the place. In my next blog, you will also find the story of an offbeat place which I explored nearby.
How to reach Dharamshala ?
The best way to reach Dharamshala is by road from major cities in North India. From the capital, New Delhi, the destination is about 500 kms which will take 10 - 12 hours to reach. The best driving route is Delhi - Ambala - Rupnagar - Anandpur Sahib - Una - Kangra - Dharamshala. You can also reach there by train, the nearest train station is Pathakot, 90 kms from the destination. The least common & expensive option is by air, Gaggal airport, which is just 15 kms away.
