Best things to do in Kangra and sightseeing in Kangra

Barely 18 kms from Dharamshala, Kangra is the perfect weekend getaway for tourists and explorers alike. This small bustling city hides away quite a few marvels within its Dhauladhar Ranges. Those looking to nestle amidst its simplistic beauty must make it a priority to visit Pragpur village, which is India's only heritage village, a place with an allure that can only be compared with those colourful little European hamlets one has only seen on TV or in children's books. Another not so well known gem in this city is the Masroor Monolith Rock temple, which is an 8th century archeological wonder made of a group of 15 temples carved out of rock, with a pond in the foreground. A location that remains a favourite with tourists is the Kangra Fort, with ramparts over a 4 km stretch protecting it, atop a hill at the conflux of Patal Ganga and Banganga river. A 200 metre walk up the road from the Kangra Fort is all that is needed for those wanting to delve more into the city's history, where they shall reach the Maharaja Sansar Chand Museum, which provides an insight into the luxurious lifestyle once led by the Katochs, the erstwhile Kangra Royal family. Adventure seekers will love the various treks that go through the Dhauladhar Ranges usually ending near the Chamba valley, providing picturesque views. The city houses some of the most charming little cafes that to every book worm's delight have a shelf full of books and cook everything from Himachali, Italian and Tibetan cuisines on the menu. Some renowned cafes and restaurants are Moonpeak, Peace Cafe, Nechung Cafe, Snow Lion Cafe, Jimmy's Italian Cafe and Indique, wherein one can also enjoy live music nights.

Triund - Kangra

Triund Hill is a famous spot that one can trek along to. As a matter of fact, there are a number of trails that one can follow and reach the peak at the Dhauladhar range. From McLeodgang to the peak is around 9 kilometres and many tourists prefer this trail. Camping is a great activity to be done here as the place is clean and cool. There are some mysterious twists to the trails that one will surely enjoy a lot. Once at the peak, click pictures of Moon Peak and the Indira Pass as well.

for a beginner like me, trekking to triund was one hell of an experience. it was snowing like cats and dogs and all the cafes were shut due to 5 ft of snow. still we managed to reach the top somehow. a trek to triund is recommended if u are heading to Mcleodganj

Kangra Fort - Kangra

It is about 20 kms from Dharamshala and is one of the largest forts in the Himalayas and its history can be traced back to the Mahabharata epics.
Kangra Fort has a small temple at the top and you need to climb seven gates to visit it. The Fort is mainly in ruins due to the earthquake in 1905, but still what remains is impressive. The view of mountains is spectacular from the top. The Fort has a museum at the entrance which was under renovation when I visited the Fort. Audio guide is also available at the gate.

Neugal Khadd - Kangra

A place of scenic beauty in the Palampur area, there are walking bridges, lakes and jungle parks in this area. The Saurabh Van Vihar is a major attraction here and this place is somewhat adventurous too. Come with a car only if you know how to drive well as the terrain is sloping. You can also enjoy some camping if you plan to stay here at night too.
It's a small stream surrounded by the Dhauladhar range. Cross over the beautiful Iron bridge over Neugal Khad on your way to the Van and enjoy the view.

The monastery and institute take you away from the city into a calm, peaceful and serene environment. The fish ponds, flowing water and surrounding trees add to the view. There's a Doll Museum, a souvenir shop, a Cafe and a guest house. I visited this place on a Sunday, when the workshops were closed but the person on the ticket counter never informed me. In some way I feel cheated after paying the entrance fee and not being able to see the workshops.
