Dharamshala stands at the foot of Dhauladhar and has a magnificent view of snowy peaks, deodar and pine forests, tea gardens and beautiful hills. The snow line is perhaps more easily accessible at Dharamshala than any other hill station in India. Dharamshala now really has become international, with a number of Tibetan settlements and the residence of Noble Laureate the 'Dalai Lama'. Dharamshala is devided into two distinct parts : lower Dharamshala the civil and business area with Courts and Kotwali bazar and upper Dharamshala composed of places like Mcleod Ganj and Forsyth Ganj.

McLeodganj of Dharamsala has become the educational and religious centre of Tibetan Buddhism. McLeodganj consists of scores of Buddhist Gompas (monasteries, nunneries and learning centres) and ancient Hindu and Jain temples. Famous for the Tibetan culture and crafts, McLeodganj has become the hub of traditional Tibetan handicrafts, thangkas, carpets, garments, etc.

Dharamsala has a lot to offer ranging from ancient temples, churches and monasteries to museums and ancient towns. The ancient temples of Jawalamukhi, Brijeshwari and Chamunda, the Church of St. John in the Wilderness, War Memorial, Kangra Art Museum and the shopping centre of Kotwali Bazar are some of the prime tourist attractions. A trek through the landscaped township of Dharamshala with views of snowy peaks, deodar and pine forests, tea gardens and beautiful hills has become a popular activity.
