Mcleodganj Dhramashala, Himachal Pradesh, India. (May, June)

Mcleodganj is a suburb of Dharamshala in Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh, India. It is known as “Little Lhasa” because of its large population of Tibetans. It has an average elevation of 2,082 metres (6,831 feet). It is situated on the Dhauladhar Range, whose highest peak, "Hanuman Ka Tibba", at about 5,639 metres (18,500 feet), lies just behind it.

As you sit in an open area surrounded by snow capped mountains, breathe in the fresh clean air of the Himalayas, and do yoga practice, you are transformed into another time and place.

Dharamshala has had a long association with yoga. Nestled in the Himalayas, this quaint town which is also home to his Holiness, the Dalai Lama, has a historical connection with yoga that can be felt from the spirituality in the air. The Himalayas have been the abode of ancient Indian sages who immersed themselves in years of sadhana to be enlightened with the great streams of knowledge like yoga, Ayurveda and other Vedic sciences.

Dharamshala is surrounded by the Dhauladhar range of the Himalayas. Being at a high altitude presents a magnificent view of the majestic mountains in front and the scenic Kangra valley below. The tall pines and rhododendron offer a panoramic view of the entire area. Add the chants coming from various monasteries in and around Dharamshala, and this is a perfectly fitting backdrop for learning yoga. Being in the Himalayas, the weather in Dharamshala is pleasant throughout the summer, during which yoga classes are carried out at various retreats here. Winters get quite cold and most yoga retreats close for the winters.

Many international tourists come to this place to seek blessings of his holiness, the Dalai Lama, apart from experiencing yoga. The place welcomes people from all religions and origins with open arms. The locals are kind and gentle in nature, and the presence of the Dalai Lama makes it a sacred location. Also with many Hindu temples of reverence in the vicinity, the place has a n abundance of religious significance – making it very safe for lone travellers, especially women.
