Mcleodgang Also known as Upper Dharamsala, McLeodganj is a suburb of Dharamsala in Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh, India. Owing to its large population of Tibetan refugees it is also referred to as the ‘little Lhasa’ in India. This hill station is named after David McLeod, the Lieutenant Governor of Punjab. McLeodgang was a popular retreat during summers for the Bruisers who were in India during the British rule. This hill station is home to the Tibetan guru and leader His Holiness, The Dalai Lama and the Tibetan government in exile. Summer in McLeodgang is during March to June where temperatures range from a minimum of 22°Celsius and go up to a maximum of 38°Celsius. It is advisable to wear light woollens during this time. Monsoon in the region is from July to August. There are fewer rainfalls during this time with the annual rainfall varying from 290 cm to 380 cm (second highest rainfall in the country). The winter months are from November to February. Temperatures go down to a minimum of -1° Celsius. Most of the regions are covered with snow and sleet during the months of December and January. It is advisable to wear heavy woollens during winter. Losar, the Tibetan New Year, is a very important festival and occurs during the months February-March. It is celebrated with a lot of festivity. McLeodgang can be visited all year round, though it is best to avoid snow covered winters during December and January.
