So after i visited norbulingka institute, Gyuto was my next destination. It's a peaceful place and filled with many good information about the past history. One need to take a break and live here for a week or 10 days. It's a soul refresher :)

10 KM from Dharmasala, on the way from Palampur, at the foothills of Dhauladhar range... very beautiful, secluded and quiet. If I have to visit only one monastery in Dharamsala, I would choose this

Located at the foothills of Dhauladhar ranges, this place is a beauty to watch and visit. A calm and serene ambience which makes you get immersed in yourself. A nice place to meditate and the campus has been maintained really well. It isn’t too crowded...More

The place is secluded and quiet. Feels very spiritual. We went at a time a special ceremony was in progress from 04 am to 06 pm. The place has some beautiful artifacts and statues of Buddhism. Loved the experience

Things can change, sometimes the doors are open for visitors, other times for sacred ceremonies the doors are shut. I suggest you ring the office and check for the day you want to visit the monastery. 91 189 223 6154

I believe accommodation is by donation, it does need to be booked ahead of time. You are welcome to ask the monastery how much is usually given as an offering for accommodation
