About Dharamshala


An important yet unexplored hill town in the state of Himachal Pradesh, Dharamshala occupies a position in the lap of the Dauladar Mountains. Acres of sprawling pine and deodar forests surround Dharamshala. The city remains divided into Lower Dharamshala and Upper Dharamshala. The hill station of Dharamshala is one of those places that were founded and developed by the British to serve as summer retreats. It is due to this reason that you still find a number of colonial buildings, adding much to the overall beauty of the quaint hill station. Apart from that, it also serves as the home of the Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama, who arrived here in the early 1960s. Soon after Dalai Lama's arrival, Dharamshala became much popular. Today, the hill town is also visited by a number of Buddhists. Dharamshala in Himachal Pradesh offers you some getaway options too.

Eating Out  

We had a typical French breakfast of toast, assorted jam and sauces, farmer's sandwich, croissants, Danish pastry -- all washed down with some fine tea.we had a staple diet of aloo parathas and chai. it was time for lunch and we stumbled on a place called Pemathang, which turned out to be the best pizzeria we've ever visited till now. We started off with some pasta followed by Macaroni and Penne In Arrabiata sauce. Everything was delicious, but the thin 'melt in your mouth' crust pizza with spinach and cashew topping was the one that bowled us over.we had Penne In Alfredo Sauce, Tagliatelle With Spinach In Olive oil and Risotto With Mushrooms. We ended the day with one of the finest Tiramisus we had ever tasted. We had lemon tarts, Black Forest cakes, chocolate mousse, gateaus all washed down with a mug of cappuccino.Tibetan lunch of tasty momos, Tingmo (made of refined flour rolled like a ball and steamed), Bakleb (Tibetan style samosas) and Thukpas (a meal of soup<
