Mcleodganj aka Little Lhasa
Recently I had been to Mcleodganj. It is a beautiful place also known as "Little Lhasa". Mcleodganj is also known as a paradise for solo travelers and if you want to start your solo adventures, it is the best place to start with.
One of the challenge of solo travel is the budget constraint. Finding a hotel which is both cheap as well as safe is an herculean task.
It was then I decided to write a blog on few cheap stay places in Mcleodganj.
1. Hotel Freedom Palace
It is located near post office opposite to yougling school at Jogiwara road. It is a decent place to stay. I went in September and was able to get a room for Rs 300/-.
