Dharamshala,Himachal Pradesh, India

A beautiful little hill resort, Dharamshala is 90 kms from Pathankot, lying on the other side of Chamba. It is the headquarters of Kangra district. The town is built on a spur of Dhauladhar range, and varies from 1,250 m to nearly 180 m. The waterfall of Bhagsunath is within a walking distance. Dalai Lama, the head of Tibetan Buddhism, who fled Lhasa in 1959 has lived in refuge in this hill town.
