Things to Do in Dharamshala

  • Dal Lake

    This beautiful lake is set amidst lush green Deodar forests at an altitude of 1,775 metres and exudes transcendence in peaceful surroundings.

    Located at a distance of 2 kilometres away from McLeodganj Market, Dal Lake is just a walk away and also happens to be a major attraction for trekkers as it serves as a base camp for several trekking expeditions. But if you don’t want to walk all the way, you can also go by car or taxi.

    The lake is also known for a popular temple of Lord Shiva that’s located on its banks.

  • Festivals

    Being largely inspired by Buddhism, Dharamshala is filled with festivity during Buddha Purnima, which marks the birth date of the founder of Buddhism - Lord Buddha. As most of the locals are followers of Buddhism, the entire town comes alive with jubilance and vivacity around Buddha Purnima.
