Dharamkot is a small hill station in Kangra district in the state of Himachal Pradesh, India.
On the crest of a hill above McLeodGanj, Dharamkot is a spot with wide views of the Kangra Valley and the Dhauladhar ranges. There are a couple of small eateries around. Several foreigners have taken residence in the area; all live in village homes and guest houses. Dharamkot also has the Vipassana meditation centre, Dhamma Shikara, as well as the Tushita Meditation Centre which is a centre for the study and practice of Buddhism in the Tibetan Mahayana tradition.
Past Dharamkot, at a distance of 9 km from McLeodGanj, much of which is a steady climb, Triund is at the foot of the Dhauladhar ranges and is at a height of 2,827 m. The snow line, which is considered[by whom?] to be the most easily accessible in the entire Himalayan range starts from Ilaqua, 4 km from Triund. A good walker[who?] will take around four hours to reach Triund from McLeodganj and another one and a half to two hours to reach Ilaqua. After Dharamkot, one passes by the Galu Devi Temple when the climb and the trail becomes demanding.[original research
