In the upper Dharamshala, Mcleodganj is the actual residence of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The famous monastery known as Namgyal Gompa has larger than life images of the Buddha, Padmasambhava and Avalokiteshwara along with the golden prayer wheels.

The hillside town of Dharamsala, stretches along the Dhauladhar mountain range in the upper reaches of the scenic Kangra district, amidst magnificent deodar, conifer and pine forests, tea gardens and mist-soaked hills.

Dharamsala is divided into two distinct parts - Lower Dharamsala, and Upper Dharamsala with places like McLeod Ganj and Forsyth Ganj, which bear witness to the history of this area. The place is an excellent base for scenic walks and treks into the Dhauladhar range.
