Nestled in the lap of the majestic Himalayan mountain range lies the quaint Dharamshala Cricket Stadium, also known as the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) Stadium. Located at a height of 1,457 masl amidst the Dhauladhar mountain range in Kangra valley, it is one of the highest sports grounds in the world. Operated under the auspices of HPCA, the Cricket Stadium often serves as the practice ground for the Indian Cricket Team, Himachal Pradesh state-level cricket team, as well as Indian Premier League (IPL) team Kings XI Punjab.
With a view comparable to the Adelaide Oval or Newlands, The stadium is open for tourists even when no matches are scheduled. The main stand is built with Tibetan architectural style.
It has several modern-day amenities for hosting national and international level cricket matches, with the capacity to seat a crowd of approximately 23,000.
Perhaps the best part of attending a match at the majestic Dharamshala Cricket Stadium would be that there is no fence in front of the seating area, providing an unobstructed view of the match. The administration is polite, and the area is quite well-maintained, which makes for a pleasant, hassle-free visit. The constant internal battle that will tear you apart is – "Shall I look at the mountains or the match?"
