Dharamsala in detail


In the market area are a handful of forgettable guesthouses plus the unexpectedly plush Hotel Inclover plonked on top of a shopping mall, with superb views from the best rooms. HPTDC's Kashmir House, around 800m uphill from the centre of Lower Dharamsala, once belonged to the Maharaja of Jammu and Kashmir. It retains a photogenic exterior with octagonal side turrets but rooms are rather basic.
