Dharamsala was recognized s headquarter of Kangra District in march 1855. Lying on a Dhauladhar spur, from a War Memorial monument at 1300 meters to Mcleodganj at an altitude of 1770 meters , spread over an 8 kilometer rising slope the place has a district character. Lower Dharamsala houses shopping complexes and the upper regions consisting of Forsytheganj and Mcleodganj retain colonial township flavours. Mcleodganj gained new appeal with the arrival of His Holiness Dalai Lama in 1966.
Local sightseeing visit Tibetan village, Mcleodganj, St. John Church, Dal Lake and Bhagsunath Temple at the Mcleodganj. Lunch and evening tea at The Club House, Mcleodganj.

Chamundaji: Chamundaji is a famous pilgrimage place where many descend to pay obeisance to the presiding goddess. With Dhuladhar ranges sheltering the temple complex on three sides, the fourth one opens out into a wooded valley with scenic settings. A temple dedicated to warring deity Chamundaji is located on the right bank of river Baner (also called Banganga), a tributary of river Beas. Holy waters of Baner have been converged into a man made bathing ghat for pilgrims to take a holy dip in. A temple glorifying Lord Shiva as Nandikeshwar in the temple complex is equally revered.
After breakfast proceed to Dharamsala.
