Things to do in McleodGanj & Dharamsala, Himachal Pradesh
Mcleodganj, an extension of a developed city - Dharamsala in Himachal Pradesh, is a wonderful choice for some chilled out time in the Himalayas. Once a popular hill-station in Himachal Pradesh, Dharamsala along with Mcleodganj, is slowly evolving into a hotspot for the expats, who have left their city-life to live in the Himalayas.
Historically, Mcleodganj used to be a favourite summer destination for the officers serving at the Kangra cantonment during the British India rule and hence the name Dharamsala - meaning a "rest house". Later, when Dalai Lama took refuge in Mcleodganj, the hill station transformed into a Tibetan refugee centre and Buddhist pilgrimage destination. The beautiful monasteries, waterfalls, lakes and quaint cafes in the backdrop of the mighty Dhauladhar Himalayas, contribute to making Mcleodganj an interesting tourist destination.

A High-Altitude Trekker & PADI certified SCUBA Diver, I love exploring the heights and depths of the planet with my regular doses of mountains and oceans.
Discovering myself & life through nature, adventures, travels, sports and dance has been an addiction since my existence!
Quite fond of the natural & cultural diversity of India, I've travelled extensively in my own country before exploring international destinations.
I had left my 9+ yrs of career in Software Industry in a quest to make a living out of my passions. I packed my basics in my car (gave away the rest) and lived in different parts of Himachal Pradesh for 16 months. This invaluable time taught me to experience life from a broader perspective.
I'm currently living in Mumbai to work with an Adventure Travel company as a product manager for Scuba Diving. I continue living a minimalistic life.
