Mcleodganj, also famously known as the Little Lhasa is a hill station nestled in the Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh. It is at an elevation of 2,082 meters and has gained massive popularity in recent years.

It is a one-stop location for people who seek adventure, spirituality, foodies, or simply the serial-chillers. With everything it has to offer, it is indeed nothing less than grabbing a lottery.

Interestingly, it is referred to as Little Lhasa because of the presence of Tibetans in mass numbers. In addition, it is home to the Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama.

The Triund Top, which is 9,432 feet above sea level, provides magnificent perspectives of the entire Kangra Valley. The path ascends to a swath of lush, bright grassland while lined by pine trees. We will go back down after spending some time at the summit admiring the beautiful mountains’ stunning magnificence.
