Mcleod Ganj, A Fine Hill Station

Just came back home a day before after an official visit to one of the finest hill station, that is Mcleod Ganj. It’s a small and beautiful hill station in Dharamshala (situated in Himachal Pradesh, India).

There is a 10Km long Trek known as Triund around Mcleod Ganj, I really wished if I could go for it but as it was an official visit for some official work I didn’t get time for it but I will come back once again just to do this beautiful trek up to the Triund Hills.

McLeod Ganj is also a residence of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and the site of the Tibetan exile community’s main temple. The Tibetan government-in-exile is based just downhill at Gangchen Kyishong, and McLeod is home to a large Tibetan population, including many monks and nuns, and due to large population of Tibetans it is also known as Little Lhasa or Dhasa; a short form of Dharamshala used mainly by Tibetans.

Mcleod Ganj has some very magnificent views of nature with snow clad hills around it, and one can find many activities and things to do in McLeod Ganj like day hikes/trekking, camping, strolling around the hills and watching the scenic beauty of nature, spending some peaceful time in the lap of nature, also there you’ll find workshops and volunteer opportunities too.
