Travel to India’s best hill stations Dharamsala and Shimla, nestled gorgeously in the lap of the mighty Himalayas. Dharamshala is a place to see thriving Tibetan Buddhist culture in India. No wonder, it is called the “Little Tibet”, which is also home to His Holiness The Dalai Lama himself. Dharamsala and Shimla are two favorite Indian hill destinations filled with perfect amalgamations of natural beauty, adventure trails (including some of the highest passes in the world), ancient temples and colonial heritage. Embark on a euphoric tour of ‘6 nights and 7 days’, exploring every tourist hotspot and experiencing these two timeless hill towns of India.
