Dharamsala, Himachal Pradesh, India, 1971
Not exactly sure where this was - somewhere in that area! NOTE - I just found an old diary with an account of the trip and will try and include some passages from it. The photo above was Dharamsala FROM THE DIARY 2nd November 1971 "We decide to take a bus from Pathankot to Dharamsala, as a thirteen hour journey to Kullu seems a bit too much. The scenery on the way is almost tropical, with bananas, oranges and lemons growing everywhere while the road twists and turns across the plateau, cut frequently by shallow river valleys. As we near Dharamsala, the high mountains behind stand out very white against the sky with a new covering of snow. On arrival, we look for a hotel and see one place called the Tourist Hotel which is empty, dirty and depressing. We feel there must be something better around and head for the PWD Rest House where we are allowed to stay by a friendly chowkidar, although we do not have any permit. For 6 rupees we have a comfortable furnished room, with our own toilet and bathroom and in the bathroom, an immersion heater, a rare sight in our price range in India. There is a little rain and a cold breeze in the early evening but later on the sky clears" 3rd Nov 1971 "We wake up this morning to a marvellous view of the mountains. The highest peaks are probably about 16,000 feet and snow is lying as low as 8,000. The range extends as far as one can see eastwards and westwards. This town must have the most spectacular situation of all the Himalayan hill resorts. At most hill stations the snow peaks are distant but at Dharamsala they loom directly over the town. We have to leave the PWD Rest House as some permit holders arrive but the Tourist Officer fixes us up with a very pleasant room at the Tourist Bungalow. This is anything but a "bungalow" - it's a Victorian era, large, rectangular, double storied building with large turret like projections at three corners. Each of the turrets has a single room on the ground and upper floor and instead of walls we have windows about two thirds of the way around our room. We find a restaurant, the Himalaya Vaishnava Restaurant, which does very good vegetarian food, just at the end of the main street. In the afternoon, we set off on a path that runs near the Tourist Bungalow and walk past timbered houses and cultivated fields to a river valley. There are many irrigation channels and streams in this area and we see a family of otters. We cross the river by a footbridge and climb up the stone path for about an hour or so until we arrive on a ridge above the town. After a rest we descend again by a ridge path which takes us past a small hill top shrine. This shrine, like many others in India, contains ancient stone carvings which have somehow survived while the buildings which held them have long since fallen down or have been destroyed"
