Share this page

On a CCS internship in Dharamsala, you'll live out an amazing adventure in the Himalayas, one of the world’s most awe-inspiring, historically significant settings. Perched among the clouds on the Himalayan mountainside, the rural locale of Dharamsala has a moving and mysterious quality. “Dharamsala” loosely translates to “spiritual dwelling,” a resting house for pilgrims. The area is home to a vibrant Indian community and several thousand Tibetan refugees—including His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
