About 2-kilometer (1.24 mile) from Library bus terminal, Happy Valley or ‘mini-Tibet’ stretches out in the outskirts of Mussoorie, and is home to about 5000 Tibetan refugees. It was in Mussoorie where the Dalai Lama established the Tibetan government-in-exile after fleeing from the Chinese authorities in Tibet in 1959. Later the government-in-exile moved to Dharamshala in Himachal Pradesh but left behind a strong community of Tibetans who have today become an integral part of the life and culture of Mussoorie. The Buddhist Temple and Tibetans Homes Foundation only testify the Tibetan struggle, and their beautiful culture. These sites are visited by art & culture enthusiasts round the world.
