Dharamsala

2014 Dharamsala’ team members meet with his Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama in Dharamsala

Camp sites are located in the north Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. Our team will hold out-patient clinics in seven different locations and provide care to approximately 2400 patients. A 2-day stay is scheduled at Dharamsala–home to exiled Tibetans and their religious leader, His Holiness, Gyatso Tenzing, the 14th Dalai Lama.

Team members will depart from various international gateways on their way to New Delhi. A combination of rail and road takes us from New Delhi to the Shivalik range or the outer Himalayas. We drive through the Shivalik range covering villages and finally enter the mighty Dhauladhar or the White Mountain Range at lower elevations. After a day’s rest, we begin our first of the seven clinics scheduled on this trip.

COVID-19
Given the global outbreak of the novel corona virus (COVID-19), along with surrounding unpredictable circumstances and travel restrictions, we have cancelled all 2020 expeditions. The health and safety of our medical team members and staff is of the utmost importance, in addition to the populations we serve. We expect to return to a full schedule starting in early 2021 depending on the easing of travel restrictions.
