Dharamshala Cricket Stadium

It's not common for a stadium to be a tourist attraction compared to the sporting teams, but the Dharamshala Cricket Stadium which is also known as Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium stands out. This venue was recently established in 2003, which makes it a modern site in India's mountainous region. Explore the distinct details that make this stadium worth a trip into Dharamshala. The experience can take your breath away.

No match, no problem

This stadium is open every day regardless of game play. Check in at the entry gate so that you can meander through the stands and surrounding complex. In fact, the stadium is incredibly tranquil when a game isn't being played.

Marvel at the architecture and mountainous backdrop. It's not unusual for cricket players to be taking in the sights too. Be on the lookout for any popular players. Cricket is a pastime that's beloved in India. The players are often happy to pose for photos with travelers. The stadium is a great place to meet new friends.

Buying tickets

When you're ready to see some cricket in action, the Dharamshala Cricket Stadium is the place to be. Look at the published schedule, and buy your tickets either at the facility or online. The stadium holds about 23,000 people, so you have a good chance at a spectacular seat.

Ideally, pick seats that are close to the field action. Unlike other venues, fences don't separate the spectators from the players. Take photos and videos without that pesky fence in the way. It's one of the best parts of seeing cricket in India.

Best time to visit

The majority of travel spots around the world are usually best visited during the spring or summer. The Dharamshala Cricket Stadium is different, however. The best time to travel here is in the winter. The backdrop to this stadium is the Himalayan mountain range. At their peaks is thick snow that's a gorgeous sight when compared to the foothills below. In fact, many people travel here in the winter for photography opportunities.

The stadium itself has a Tibetan architectural style. The bold colors are striking against the snowy mountaintops. If you're a fan of history, culture, nature and architecture, this stadium offers you the best of several worlds.

Taking your time

Don't hurry through your time at the stadium either. Remember that even this venue is at a high altitude. You may not be at the top of the Himalayas, but the air is still thin. Walk slowly through the stadium, and stop frequently for breaks. The high elevation gives you an excuse to look at the architecture and people watch at the same time. The stadium is a perfect place to reflect on the local culture as both locals and travelers enjoy the space.

Fly into Kangra Airport located in Gaggal to visit this amazing venue. Plan accordingly so that you can visit during peak times, such as during cricket matches and with snowy peaks surrounding you.
