Fed up with the traditional hill stations that reside in Himachal and Uttaranchal, we thought of exploring a different hill station from usual like Nainital and Shimla. This was an unplanned trip, with no research done on the places to visit in Dharamshala & McLeod Gang.
From this, we can say that three days are more than enough to explore both Dharamshala as well as McLeod Gang. We started late in the night from Maharana Pratap ISBT; we already booked Himachal Pradesh Transport Volvo bus(Himsuta) two days in advance.
Dharamshala & McLeod Gang are 10 Kms apart, with McLeod Gang is at a higher altitude than Dharamshala. You can book a bus for either of the places, if your destination is McLeod Gang, as ours was I would suggest you to book McLeod Gang bus or you need to spend 200 bucks more from Dharmashala bus stand to McLeod Ganj.
The day started with a bam, with continues hail and rain for two hours, we thought our whole day was ruined. We were staying in a hotel that was near Tibet Café. We accidentally went there as we were hungry, but after an hour we were in love with the place. Food was delicious there particularly Omellettes and Pancakes; I can personally vouch for them.
