About 30km southeast of Dharamsala, Palampur is a small junction town surrounded by tea plantations and rice fi elds. A short trek from town takes you to the pretty waterfall in Bundla Chasm , or you can pass a few hours observing the tea-making process at the Palampur Tea Cooperative, about 2km south of town on the main road between Kangra and Mandi.

McLeod Ganj

McLeod Ganj isn’t called ‘Little Lhasa’ just because it’s the seat of the Tibetan government-in-exile; it’s infused with a living blend of ancient and contemporary Tibetan culture, from arts to religion to food. The nearby Norbulingka Institute is among the best places in the world to see exquisite Tibetan crafts being handmade by masters and their apprentices.

India’s so-called ‘Mini Switzerland’, this grassy bowl-shaped marg (meadow), 22km from Dalhousie, is ringed by pines and thronged by Indian holidaymakers. In among the dhabas on one side is the Khajjinag Temple, with fine woodcarvings and crude effigies of the five Pandavas, installed here in the 16th century.


The Chamba Valley is a splendidly isolated valley system, cut off from the Kangra Valley by the Dhauladhar Range and from Kashmir by the Pir Panjal. This area was ruled for centuries as the princely state of Chamba, the most ancient state in North India. Even though good roads connect Chamba with Pathankot and Kangra, surprisingly few travellers make it out here, with even fewer continuing up the valley beyond the old hill station of Dalhousie.
