To fully experience the joys of local life in Dharamshala, one must sample the local cuisine in the region. Tudkiya Bhat (a pulao preparation), Thukpa (noodle soup), Shapta (a chicken gravy dish) and of course, dishes that need no introduction, maggi and momos are few delectable food choices you can look forward to while vacationing here.
There are several tea gardens that one can visit while in Dharamshala. While few prominent gardens are at Sheela Chowk and Khaniyara, there are tea gardens at Kunal Pathri and Palampur as well. The tea obtained from these gardens is called Dharamshala or Kangra tea. Over the years, apart from the traditional Kangra green tea, Dharamshala now produces a variety of teas such as black tea, oolong tea, white tea, Kashmiri Kahwa and masala chai.
Dharamshala and its suburbs are steeped in peace and serenity. If waking up to the view of mountains and reconnecting with yourself sounds like something you’d love to do, look no further. The mountains are calling!
