Dharamsala — 2 nights

The hill station of Dharamsala's reputation stems from its large community of exiled Tibetan Buddhists, including the Dalai Lama.

And it doesn't end there: relax and rejuvenate at Holistic Massage Centre, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Tsuglag Khang, take in the awesome beauty at Triund Hill, and gain insight at Norbulingka Institute.
