View of himalayan mountains from Dharamshala

Dharamshala is located fairly close to the Himalayan range. Our high school text books told us that Himalayan mountains retain snow all through the year. But the reality greeted us- there's hardly any snow left on top of the mountains in peak summer.

Dharamshala won't take you to as close to the himalayas as other places- say Simla or Manali. However it does offer a few good view points.

One more view, seen from a point near Bhagsu falls

The message is loud and clear. There's not much ice left to provide water in the summer to our rivers. Global warming is for real.

The region is also known for Snow Leopards, now facing extinction. 


  1. High passes around Dharamshala and that belt,including passes near Leh is the home to the last few snow leopards left in the wild.You should be able to see their videos on youtube.They are almost on the brink of extinction!
