Best Places To Visit In Dharamshala

Often referred to as the second ‘Winter Capital of India’, Dharamshala is the ultimate adventure and backpacking destination in the country. Every year thousands of tourists from India as well as from other countries come to the mesmerizing Kangra Valley and make Dharamshala home for days as there are a number of tourist places in Dharamshala ranging from high mountains to Buddhist monasteries, this city has a lot to offer. Namgyal Monastery, Tibetan Museum, Kangra Art Museum, War Memorial, and Kangra Fort are the best places to visit in Dharamshala.

    Amit's 6 days trip to Dharamshala

    Everything was good except no body from travel triangle team has called to enquire anout us. My suggestion to your team is ,atleast call your customer once the trip starts whether they have checked in or not driver service is good or not.You people never called me oñce. I dont know about your company policy but please ask your employees to call their customers

    Prmsngh's 4 days trip to Dharamshala

    This is my 2nd trip with Traveltriangle. My experience is too much good but some points feel me down due to which i cant give 5 rating. As you see hotel management as well as travel agent rating is not full. So, reason is simple. I already talked to agent regarding last day but still i have to talk auto for it. That was bad experience. And hotel is 4 star as per Traveltriangle but its worst than that. Forget candle light dinner... and dont have menu variations also candle light dinner in room. This was bad really bad. Need to work on this. Other than that all good.... cab volvo others are best...

    Abhign's 4 days trip to Dharamshala

    Travel agent is good but forgot our trip details and other main things. Every time I have to remember about our trip details. Also the cab driver is not guiding us properly for the tour and places. Hotel is excellent and staf was very humble and Co operative. Food was delicious. Salong velly and candle light dinner of our hotel is very much memorable.

    Nigel's 3 days trip to Dharamshala

    The whole experience was great. We chose one of the two vendors offered to us by Travel triangle based on the pricing and the package. The hotel we selected had a beautiful view of the river and snow clad mountains. The trip was well organised and we had a great time in Manali Climbing up through the snow mountains of Solang valley was the best memory of the trip

    Ritika's 4 days trip to Dharamshala

    Pooja travel agent planned everything as per need, she was very helpful throughout and our trip was good. We enjoyed a lot... The only issue issue was driver assigned on the trip wasn't aware of locations as was dependable on google map but on hill station we always have network issue so we faced issue with locating the location.
