Amritsar

Explore the legendary city of Amritsar, whose maze of narrow lanes and railway lines has built up around an excavated pool thought to have healing powers. In the centre of this pool is the Harmandir Sahib, better known as the famous Golden Temple, a dazzling example of a gurdwara and the holiest site in Sikhism. Take a look around this magnificent structure and then tour the medieval Old Town, including the touching Jallianwala Bagh memorial.

Dharamshala

Enter the rocky landscape of Dharamshala, a hill station with a stunning snow-capped mountain backdrop. The town is divided into the lower and upper parts, with Upper Dharamshala being nicknamed ‘Little Lhasa’ because the Dalai Lama sought refuge here after being exiled from Tibet. Visit his home in McLeod Ganj and call in at the Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts to learn more about Tibet’s vibrant music and dance. We’ll also visit the War Memorial, located in a pine forest. After you’ve soaked up the fascinating history and culture of the town be sure to admire the epic Himalayan panoramas.
