Dharamshala

Things to do - general

Dharamshala formerly known as Bhagsu is situated in the higher reaches of the splendorous Kangra Valley placed in the southern spur of the snow strewn Dhauladhar Range of the Himalayas in India. This camp cum learning centre untouched by the hand of man, where nature has still not been rearranged makes for a lovely trip and is located at the lovely yet quaint Village Mohal Tou in Dharamshala, district Kangra, Himachal Pradesh.

The region here is surrounded by dense coniferous forests comprising primarily of majestic Deodar trees. If finding serenity and your true spiritual self are one of the things on your bucket list then look no further because not far from our location is the village of McLeod Ganj residence to the Dalai Lama known the world over for his spiritual presence and holiness.

Other factors that make Chrysalid an ideal weekend getaway are its propinquity to the paragliding take off point in Dharamshala at the famous temple of Indru Nag. The camp spread across 2 acres of terraced land is conveniently accessible by road, perched on a ridge which gradually climbs into thick pine and oak trees that overlook the gorge formed from the stream coming from Bhagsu Nag fall.
