Discover top attractions in Dharamshala
Located on the foothills of the Dhauladhar range of the Himalayas, the resort is very much in the center of Dharamshala. The Dharamshala bus station is located 6 kilometers from the hotel, so we recommend driving or taking a taxi to the stand, which takes approximately 20 minutes. For the active traveler, there are a variety of treks available across the region, however more locally, there is a selection of nearby temples and art galleries.
