  • The trip was fabulous. Shimla is an amazing place with lots to see and do. Our tour operator was excellent. All of their suggestions and recommendations were solid. We loved our hotel and the location. All the tours were high-quality and we experienced no difficulties with pickups. Mr. Nitin was extremely pleasant to work with and truly wanted us to have a fabulous time.

  • We cannot recommend this travel company enough! My husband and I had been wanting to go to India for quite some time but had not done so due to lack of time to plan a worthwhile trip. Booking with this company was exactly what we needed--we told them the types of places and sites we wanted to see and they took care of the rest.

  • I got exactly the vacation I wanted for almost no work and probably cheaper than I could have done it myself. I told this travel company what I wanted and they just did the rest. The hotels and tours/activities were great! Couldn't have asked for more. Great service too they were very responsive and helpful!

McLeod Ganj Historical Background

Initially inhabited by the indigenous Gaddi tribes and dominated by one of the world’s earliest royal clans; the Katoch Dynasty, Mcleodganj was annexed to the British East India Co. in India subsequent to the Second Anglo-Sikh War in the year 1849 AD. Christened after Sir Donald Friell McLeod; the then Lieutenant Governor of Punjab, Mcleodganj – a twin city of ForsythGanj was one of the essential civilian settlements of the Dharamshala Cantonment. Greatly treasured by the British officials as a soothing summer escape from the scorching heat of Indian plains, Mcleodganj underwent gradual expansion and progress over the years. By 1904 AD, this peachy conurbation of Himachal Pradesh had earned the stature of a prime axis of trade, commerce and all the administrative activities of the Kangra District. Alas, the lethal earthquake of Kangra in the year 1905 shattered most of the Mcleodganj and heaved this once thriving mainstream city into the cloud of obscurity.

Later, this newly reestablished town once again came into the glare of publicity after the independence when ‘Tenzin Gyatso’; the 14th Dalai Lama fled to India after the legendary Tibetan Uprising of 1959 AD. Later, he established the ‘Government of Tibet in Exile’ at Mcleodganj with an aid from the Government of India and thus the epoch of Mcleodganj as a ‘Mini Tibet’ was ushered. Henceforth, Mcleodganj grew to be the official headquarters of Dalai Lama and numerous Buddhist monasteries were established here. Consequently, thousands of Tibetan refugees sought shelter at Mcleodganj and thus formed a tiny integrated Tibet in India. The present day Mcleodganj is acclaimed all over the place as the central spindle of the Buddhist culture and learning and is budding as one of the paramount hill resorts of Himachal Pradesh teeming with hordes of tourists all round the year.
