Mcleodganj is a short distance from Dharamshala. This town is the residence of Dalai Lama. The town has a strong influence of the Tibetan culture. A significant part of the population is monks and nuns. Tourists coming here not only visit the many places of interest but also sit down to understand the philosophy of Buddhism.
Due to the presence of Tibetans, Mcleodganj is fondly known as ‘Little Lhasa’. A suburb in the region of Dharamsala of Himachal, Mcleodganj is situated at a height of 2,082 meters amid the Dhauladhar Range of mountains. The quaint little town is known for its extensive British History, since it was the summer retreat during that era. The beautiful surroundings of this town were enough to make Lord Elgin, the then British viceroy, to feel like declaring it the summer capital of India. The Tea House that he built is still just as popular as it was all those years ago. If you’re planning to take a hike to the next hill town of India, here are a few spots you can visit in Mcleodganj – the official exile place of the Dalai Lama.
