Himachal Pradesh

A small part of Himachal has managed to preserve a special place and time in history, one that belongs to the mystical and alluring Tibet. The unique and undemanding town of Mcleod Ganj is filled with peaceful Tibetan monks, charming Tibetan refugees, tourists lapping up the warm sun, volunteers of all nationalities and prayer flags galore. Written all over its mountainous and forested terrain is the true spirit of Tibet: joy in the face of hardship. Although the Tibetan community has been here for close to five decades now, a sense of nostalgia for home and country is pervasive.

A small walk in the heart of town along hotels, stores, restaurants, cafés and souvenir shops reveals many interesting sights, sounds and smells. These range from kitsch jewelry to posters of His Holiness to DVDs of Kundun and Seven Years in Tibet, with the ever-present waft of steamed momos.
