Mcleodganj is a hill station near Dharamshala, popular among trekkers. Its culture is a beautiful blend of Tibetan with some British influence.
Also known as Little Lhasa and famous around the world for being home to the Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama, Mcleodganj is a beautiful town situated near upper Dharamsala. Nestled amidst majestic hills and lush greenery, this town is culturally blessed by a prominent Tibetan influence owing to the major settlement of Tibetans here. Mcleodganj has one of the most mesmerising landscapes in the entire state of Himachal Pradesh and attracts a lot of tourists throughout the year. The towns of Dharamsala, Mcleodganj, Bhagsu Nag and Kangra are situated very close to each other and tourists must cover all these destinations while travelling here. Few of the most eminent and religiously significant monasteries in India are located here, including the Namgyal Monastery and Tsuglagkhang, where the spiritual leader Dalai Lama resides. Tourists must also visit the scenic Dal Lake and Triund, which are apt for quiet picnics.

Mcleodganj is an amazing place thatbhas something for everyone. Tibetian monasteries, awesome places to eat, adventure activities, treks and waterfalls.. I could not have asked for more :)
Very nice place but seems to be getting more congested and dirty nowadays..Budhist temples are really amazing having Tibetan style..enjoy the water fall and street food, momos and street shoppings..
Mountains calling one of the places that's suitable for winters and summers. Surrounded with mountains that gives an impression if they are calling you. If you visit Mcleodganj do have the Trihund trek is a recommended trek, what else you can do is visit local market a small water fall and some other places.
I went to Dharamshala and McLeodganj on a college trip. We ditched the trek and went to Bhagsu falls instead. Time spent there was pretty amazing, we went in the water and clicked some Instagram-worthy pictures! Next time I want to go there alone, find a place away from the tourists and read my book while eating Maggi in the mountains. The Tibetan mini market is a treat for shopping enthusiasts, you can find good woolen clothes and different Tibetan souvenirs at affordable prices (Rs. 100-500). Try negotiating the prices as the sellers usually overcharge tourists. Foodies also enjoy this place, I tried Shaphalay and loved it!
