Chonor House

Chonor House

Experience the Tibetan style in this charming hotel located in the picturesque Himalayas

Explore Dharamsala

Traditional Tibetan hospitality in the heart of the vibrant hill station of Dharamsala

When you travel to Dharamsala, the Indian home of the Dalai Lama and the exiled Tibetan community, Chonor House is undoubtedly the best place to stay. This hotel has traditionally been the first choice for international celebrities and dignitaries visiting the Dalai Lama.

It is however a down to earth kind of place, and not to be described as a five-star hotel. Chonor House has a variety of rooms and suites, all heated and decorated in traditional Tibetan style with modern amenities and attached bathrooms.

This is one of three hotels run by Norbulingka, a local organisation dedicated to the preservation of traditional Tibetan arts and culture. They also run a crafts centre nearby which is well worth a visit. When staying here be sure visit the many Buddhist monasteries and temples, enjoy the shopping and many restaurants, learn about Tibet at the museum and library, or trek up to the snow line at Triund, where overnight camping can also be arranged.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
