Kangra Fort

Reviewed By keentraveller27 - Hyderabad, India

There was along line for tickets so best if one has the exact change else the man at the counter needs to be prompted to return the change. On the left side at the entrance is the facility for a self guided audio tour with headsets.It costs 250 INR. This is a must else it becomes difficult to understand what is what. The narrative is great with all the history but slow and long and sometimes the distance between two points is short but the narrative keeps going on. A great place, a decent climb and has lots of history.

Triund Hill

Grade: Moderate McLeod Ganj to Triund 2800 mtrs, 9 kms gradual trek. The trek offer panoramic views Bhagsu village, McLeod Ganj, Dharamsala valley and distant views of Shivalik hills and plains of Kangra valley. The trek is moderate nature. Triund is a large land of green grass and pasture like. One can see the mighty Dhauladhar ranges just above the eyes. This is the base camp and climatization point for trekkers climbing the Inderahara point in the Mt. Dhauladhar.

Norbulingka Institute

This institute is dedicated to the preservation of Tibetan culture.

Reviewed By Gajarajan1947 - Chennai (Madras), India

This is an institute where various crafts are being taught to the Tibetian youth both males and females. The crafts include wood work arts,painting, embroidery,doll making etc., etc..The entire location is beautifully maintained with Fountains, flower Gardens and decorative structures. it is a very big complex at the end of which is a beautiful Monastery. There is a doll Museum which is very great and the history of tibet is shown through beautiful dolls which you should never miss. The students are so much engrossed in their training, and our presence will never disturb them. This is a must visit place while at Dharamshala.
The visiting hours are from 9-00 am to 05-30 pm. The monastery will be open beyond 5-30 pm also. there is also a restaurant which is open from 7-00 am to 9-30 pm.

Tibetan Museum

Reviewed By Alastair D

This is a well organised, thoughtfully laid out museum which gives any visitor the Dharamsala an insight into the history of Chinese repression of the Tibetan people and the story of the exiles here and in other parts of the world. The captions are in English but it would be good if they were in Chinese as well!

Bajreshwari Devi Temple

Reviewed By A TripAdvisor Member

I went to Bajreshwari Devi Temple. The temple is also surrounded by a stone wall like a fort. The temple also have a small temple of Bhairav. In front of the main temple an idol of Dhayanu Bhagat is also present. He had offered his head to the Goddess at the time of Akbar. It is great place to go.

Tsechokling Gompa

Reviewed By laxmikantpawar - Pimpri-Chinchwad, India

The religious monument is constructed on a steep hillside in the shadow of Dhauladhars. There is a beautiful figurine at the Gompa. The monument can be reached by heading on a trail from Dalai Lama’s temple complex. Powerful and Yet Peaceful. What Hon. Dalai Lama stands for, what. Buddhist people are.

Masroor Rock Cut Temple

Reviewed By jameslesleyc - Scotland, United Kingdom

This is an incredibly beautiful temple, although some of it is in ruins due to weather damage it is still incredible and definitely worth seeing. The sculptures are breathtakingly beautiful. You can walk up the narrow stone stairs to get an over view of the structures, and the surroundings.

Naddi View Point

Naddi View Point - Perfect location to view massive Dhauladhar Range at such a close distance, no walking or trekking involved, no more stress on knees! , The view is subjected to weather. It's mostly cloudy at this point. Enjoy food bites in cafes around with serene beauty of the Himalyas at stone throwing distance.

Reviewed By Gajarajan1947 - Chennai (Madras), India

i find two different locations in the Trip Advisor reviews around McLeod Ganj, namely 'Naddi view point' and 'Sunset point', but actually both are one and the same. It is a sun set point located at Naddi village, that is all.
It is an excellent location from where you can see the western end of Himalayan range( with icy glaziers) and setting of the Sun behind the Himalayas. But you must be really lucky to have an excellent view, depending on the time and weather to your advantage. For example even though we were there at the right time( between 5-30 to 6-30 pm) we did have the opportunity as it was heavily clouded and we could not see the sun set. However, we loved the place for its picturesque surroundings and breath taking views.( Photos attached)
