In the shadow of the mighty Dhauladhar range lies the charming town of Dharamshala. It's split into two parts: Lower Dharamshala with markets like Kotwali Bazar, and the upper area known as Mcleodganj, surrounded by thick pine, cedar, and oak forests.
To get to Dharamshala, it's an 18 km drive uphill from Kangra. Mcleodganj is where the Tibetan Government in exile is based. As you go up, the weather changes from warm to cool.
After the Tibetan uprising in 1959, the 14th Dalai Lama found refuge in Mcleodganj, bringing many Tibetan refugees. Mcleodganj is now called 'Little Lhasa' and attracts famous people from around the world.
While Dharamshala has a Tibetan influence, you can also see remnants of the colonial era in buildings, a church, and landmarks scattered around the town and nearby areas.
