Barely 2 km from McLeodganj, this hamlet is every trekker’s destination. Commercialization hasn’t yet sullied the slopes of Dharamkot, as compared to Dharamsala. Quaint cafes sell piping-hot noodle preparations and cups of tea, while basic cottages are the places to stay. Trekking to vantage point to catch unmatched views of Kangra Valley or treading the steady climb to Triund, a nearby destination to admire the snow-capped Himalayan peaks, are two popular activities.
Nearest airport: Gaggal, 32 km; Railway station: Pathankot, 95 km.
The best way, though, is to travel by bus till McLeodganj and take a rickshaw from there.
