Dharamsala / Mcleodgunj Experience
Dharamsala as we know is divided into two sections. Dharamsala town (3500 ft asl or Lower Dharamsala) and Mcloedgunj (6000 ft asl - Upper Dharamsala).
Mcleodgunj today is a centre for Buddhism. This is the residence in exile of His Holiness Dalai Lama and gets thousands of devotees visiting the Monastery here all round the year.
Dharamsala / Mcloedgunj and areas behind (Dhualadhar range) are known for one of the best trekking routes in the country (Indrahara Pass, Ilaka Got, Mankiani Pass, Triund, Kareli Lake (Frozen lake till April) etc.)).
Besides the monastery, Bhagshu Nag temple and Norbulingka Institute are two well-visited places here.
Dharamsala has stays that offers himalaya views and has resort like character but Mcleodgunj being at a higher altitude offers a better weather in summer.
