Make Your Delhi-Dharamshala-Bir Billing-Manali Tour Package Unforgettable

Bir Billing

We’re all familiar with Dhauladhar and Dharamshala. I always envisioned this imposing Himalayan range naturally shielding India. There was a chapter in my Hindi textbook about Dhauladhar, part of the Himachal Board of School Education syllabus. I can’t recall which grade it was!

But that’s where it ended! I never got the chance to explore this formidable range.

It’s common to read about places and not get the opportunity to visit them. Indian children often accompany their parents to family functions, and birthdays, which are meant to be relaxing. My experience was no different!

In 2019, I was overjoyed to finally see Dhauladhar up close, standing tall and unwavering beside me.

Dharamshala is meticulously constructed at the foothills of this mighty range, followed by expansive, not-so-flat plains, freshwater streams, and flowers adorning this beautiful place, infusing it with freshness.

I’m sure you’d relish visiting such a place.

The tour package I am proposing has a perfect blend to enjoy the natural beauty in Dharmashala & Manali, adding eternal peace and sowing seeds of spiritualism for the rest of your life here at the home of the Dalai Lama and mixing a little adventure in Bir Billing.

Sounds interesting, right?

DAY 1 || Delhi to Dharamshala

Traveling from Delhi to Dharamshala offers two main options: Volvo buses for road travel or flights, as Dharamshala is also accessible by air. The closest airport is Kangra Airport. Needless to say, air travel tends to be costly. Those with ample earned leave should consider road travel, reserving air travel for those seeking quick trips.

Let me quote the words of appreciation written about Dhramashala which would validate your decision to choose this stunning place-

“Dharmashala is an amalgamation of Rajput valour, colonial glory, and the elusive Tibetan enigma that we see today. Dharamshala is a mysterious chapter of history in the hills of Himachal” – Indulgence by Syantani

Things to do in Dharamshala

Visit Kangra Fort | St John Church | Trek to Triund | Visit Bhagsu Falls | Dharmkot | Dal Lake | HPCA International Cricket Stadium | Popular Monasteries & Temples like Norbulingka Institute

Kangra Fort was built by Katoch Dynasty and has stood the test of time.

St. John’s Church, Dharamshala is dedicated to Lord Elgin, who happened to be one of the celebrated Viceroys of India. He was buried on Church grounds in 1863. Built in 1852, the church survived the great Kangra earthquake of 1905.

Since you could feel tired after the night journey, I would recommend visiting the nearby places in Dharamshala which you can reach by hiring a cab.

DAY 2 || Dharmshala Triund Trek

Allocate Day 2 for the Triund Trek and embark on the journey as early as feasible. Renowned for its spiritual significance and accessibility, the Triund trek entails just a three-hour hike to reach the summit at an elevation of 2850m.

There are two routes to Triund, with the easier one being via Dharmakot-Gallu Mandir. This route offers a combination of gradual and steep ascents.

To make the trekking experience unforgettable the trekkers set up camps in tents on the hilltop overnight. The view from Triund is magnificent.

My recommendation is to hire a professional tour guide. The main season for the trek is April-May Months of the year. During the peak this season, 2000-2500 tourists on average venture out for Triund Trek. Pre-pack your food items because you may not find the stuff of your choice on the rocky path leading to Triund Trek.

The last 1 Km of the trek is tough; approximately twenty turns & has a steep climb.

Those trekking can extend their journey to Lahesh Cave and Indrahar Pass. If you intend to do so, strategize your plan before departing from your hotel room. This requires extensive planning and preparation.

Triund offers accommodation at the Department of Forest Guest House, featuring three available rooms for rental. Reservations must be made in advance for your planned stay. Online bookings are accessible at

Be prepared to encounter challenges regarding water availability, so ensure you’re equipped to tackle such difficulties. In addition to the Guest House, private rooms are also offered at Rs 500/- per person per night. Basic food options will be provided.

Plan your return journey on time, as it typically takes a minimum of 2 hours to reach Gallu Temple.

DAY 3 || Dharmshala To Bir Billing

Assuming that you are ready for the day’s adventure, on Day 3 our next waypoint is Bir Billing. What’s that & how to reach Bir Billing?
