|DHARAMSALA, or more correctly, its upper town McLEOD GANJ, is one of Himachal's most irresistible destinations. Spread across wooded ridges beneath the stark rock faces of the Dhauladhar Range, the town is divided into two distinct and separate sections, separated by 10km of perilously twisting road and almost a thousand metres in altitude. Originally a British hill station, McLEOD GANJ. is a place of pilgrimage that attracts Buddhists and interested tourist & all over the world.
Despite heavy snows and low temperatures between December and March, McLeod Ganj receives visitors year round. Summer brings torrential rains - this being the second wettest place in India - that return in bursts for much of the year. Daytime temperatures can be high, but you'll need warm clothes for the chilly nights.
