Situated 4 Km north of the town of Dharamshala, McLeod Ganj is also known as ‘Little Lhasa’ because of its abundant Tibetan population. This scenic suburb is surrounded by the magnificent Dhauladhar Range and is the residence of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.
Usually swarmed by many tourists all year round, McLeod Ganj is a place of interest for many youngsters and travel enthusiasts as it offers scenic trekking routes through stunning hills and also reeks of an alternative vibe.
The winding streets of McLeod Ganj are sprinkled with many diverse cafes and hotels and it’s a delight to sip on some refreshing hot tea with a spectacular backdrop for company.
I had a great time unwinding from the lethargic and extremely mundane city life in the lap of ravishing hills engulfed in cold soothing breeze. Mcleod Ganj is not just about picturesque locations but it is also a food hub. Since it's thronged by many foreigners throughout the year, this hill station offers a variety of restaurants offering lip-smacking food.
Nature. Peace. Tranquility. Stunning Treks. Breath-taking views of snow covered lofty peaks. Cafes whipping up delectable food. Positive vibes. Hope. Mcleod Ganj is a beautiful amalgamation of all of this and more.
