The hill station of Dharamsala's reputation stems from its large community of exiled Tibetan Buddhists, including the Dalai Lama.
Go for a jaunt from Dharamsala to Kangra to see Kangra Fort about 48 minutes away. There's still lots to do: gain insight at Norbulingka Institute, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kalachakra Temple, take in the awesome beauty at Triund Hill, and indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas.

For traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, use the Dharamsala travel site.

Mumbai to Dharamsala is an approximately 6.5- hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and taxi. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Fri) so you can drive to Shimla.
