Fantastic post Aztec! (and love your website!!)

Thanks for the great info on things to see & do in Dharamsala - I had 3 days there in 2001 and looking forward to spending 10-14 days there next trip to explore & enjoy (March 2007). The Tibetans are the most beautiful, friendly people.

Cheers,
Putty

Dharamsala is a fabulous place.

I was to get there in winter sometime, when it is full of snow.

Medical Center in Dharamsala

Hi all.. I am planning to travel to Dharamsala with my brother and looking for your help and advise. My brother has excessive sweats, including hands, feet, underarms and groin, which in medical terms called Hyperhidrosis. I heard once that people can get treatment in one of the monasteries or medical center in Dharamsala.. I am looking for any information to confirm before we buy tickets and go there.. I would greatly appreciate any advise, info.

Thank you,

Smile

Smile, you should visit the main branch of Men-tse-khang which is about 1 kilometer down the hill from McLeod Ganj. They can advise and set up appointments. I hope that they can help. Tibetan medicine is really useful for some conditions. you could research on google. see if there have been any studies.

Great post. We also loved Norbulinka, the Chinmaya ashram, and I especially liked visiting the Kangra Tea cooperative, and being shown how they process it. It's a semi-fermented tea, between a green and black, sort of like Darjeeling. I brought some back and it was fragrant, delicate, very satisfying; nirvana in a cup. The manager apologized that it was from the last harvest, and said the first flush, coming in a few months, would be the good stuff.

Dharamshala info

Hi,

What a fantastic review/write up & extremely helpful to someone like me planning to visit the place.

I plan to be there next week. You travelled there in 2001, did you say? Have you gone back there?

Would you know of some places to volunteer with? I read of a LHA organisation for Tibetan refugees. Any idea about this place?

Any other tips for a solo traveller will be welcome - places to stay/eat at, things to do, trekking/yoga/meditation etc.

Thanks

Happy travels!

Lha is still one of the more popular organisations to volunteer with. Then there's Students for Free Tibet(SFT), Tibet World, Hope Centre, Gu Chu Sum, Waste Warriors, and many many others

Pink house - 09805527124/09418143227

But I'd recommend Kareri Lodge or Pema Thang, especially room number 500, a stand alone room on the top floor of Kareri Lodge. Good value for money - central, large, private.

And there are others that are even better - it all depends on your budget and preferred location.

Budget stay as in..? Rs. 500 per night? Rs. 1000? Lesser? All the places that I mentioned are from Rs. 800-1500(Pink House) to Rs. 1000-1500(Pema Thang and Kareri)

Other than Ladakh, Himachal is the safest place I know. But you can never be too safe, so take the usual precautions.

There're also some guest houses near Him View on Jogibara Road - one is called Ekant Hotel I think - whose names I cannot recall right now that charge about Rs.400 a day - clean, though small. I'm not sure though if they rent out rooms just for a day or two. How long do you plan to stay anyway? If you're going to be volunteering for a month or more, there're many guest houses where you could find a room for anywhere between Rs.6000-Rs.10000 per month
